Resume Infographic

[Infographic Monday]

I really love the idea of a resume infographic, I’m just not sure HR departments and their documenting scanning/reading devices are ready for them.

If you have a LinkedIn account, you can quickly generate a resume infographic with just a couple clicks via Vizualize.mehttp://vizualize.me/. Check it out. I think this is a pretty cool way of competing for a job, especially if you’re pursuing a position in the creative industries.  An infographic is an engaging way to tell a story versus a resume, which by it’s very nature feels very bla, bla, bla.

I also think infographics provide an alternative to boring academic vitaes and professional biographies. Click here to see Steve Jobs infographic bio.

    Very cool! I love infographics because you get the info so quick. I can’t imagine going back to no infographics now that they’re popping up all over. It’s innovation!

     That’s a great idea for LinkedIn. I do not understand LinkedIn. I get more requests there than anywhere, but they go nowhere. I really need to figure it out…

     A painted resume. Wow. If I have to paint my resume, I’ll never get another job. hahaha! Cool idea, though! Especially if you can illustrate.

    I really think resume infographics are here to stay.  I will be checking all of this on the handy links at my LinkedIn account page.  I once saw an illustrator just PAINT her resume–who could resist?

    Strictly in a research capacity I have been playing around with these tools as well.  I do wonder what HR departments will think about these.  In my current field of social media I think that hiring managers might appreciate them but they have to get by a whole bunch of other people first!
