I've built up a decent profile and work history as a freelance software developer on both Elance and now UpWork. Indeed, the client reviews alone trump anything I could possibly boast about myself, and my profile is doing a much better job of selling me than my resume ever could.
I an now applying to full-time and non-freelance jobs, and I want to ensure that recruiters (particularly the ultimate decision-makers) see these profiles at some point during the recruitment process.
What's the best / most subtle way to do this? I've created shortened URLs to my profile pages (e.g. http://bit.ly/MyUsername-Elance), and put them at the top of my resume. But based on what I've read, most people are advising against this. And of course on a printed resume, the URLs serve no function.
If I chose not to link to these profiles on my resume, how best to bring them up?
