I went through the resume podcast and forum discussions and I realize that the general consensus is that putting URLs e.g. LinkedIn is discouraged. However, since the primary recommendation is to focus on accomplishments, is it worthwhile putting hyperlinks on accomplishments as "proof" or to lend additional credibility?
* if describing a patent awarded for an innovative design, is putting a link to the Google Patents advisable.
* for a published white paper, is putting a link to the slideshare white paper ok?
* is linking to a major website that was developed as part of one's project and listed as an accomplishment ok?
I guess I am trying to showcase a portfolio of IT accomplishments. Is the resume a right place for this, or would a service like VisualCV be better?
