Previously available only as part of Zapoint’s enterprise solution, SkillsMapper, the LifeChart is now available at no charge to all of the more than one million members of Zapoint’s job-search division, Jobster.com.

Zapoint’s LifeChart helps individuals condense their resume into an interactive chart, creating the equivalent to a personal career stock chart. Calculated from resume data, peaks in the chart represent periods of achievement or activity.

"People like to look at a picture and understand a story," added Twyman. "LifeChart creates a visual resume that helps people understand their personal, educational and professional progress over the life of their career. Users are able to highlight interesting or important times in life by adding a note to a particular event."

Users indicate that the visual representation of their career and life help them gain understanding about patterns of behavior that conflict with their life goals.

The solution also helps them discover areas of their professional life that require additional attention in order to reach their career objectives.
