MIAMI - Miguel Merino's online resume has the usual rundown of work experience and education. But the University of Miami music performance major takes it a step further by letting visitors listen to his tracks, read critics' reviews, see a list of upcoming gigs and watch videos of his performances.
"It's the first time I've had my own Web site that I've put some work into," said Merino, 22. And it's worth the $20 a month as a personal promotion tool, he said: "It's super important."
Merino was pushed to create the site, migimusic.com, because of a class assignment. But multimedia resumes work for more careers than those in the performing arts.
