Who ever said your CV/ Resume had to be boring and text driven? I truly think we could all benefit from info graphics in this way. Perhaps my newly designed CV is a bit of an over kill for an accountant or project manager, etc. However, if it was styled down to the basics I believe your potential employer would greatly appreciate the usability and clear and concise visuals. And we need to do what we can in this economy to get noticed.
In fact I’m not entirely sure why our CV’s/ resumes need to even be in a printable size anymore. Need I say because of email, ipad, the web, iphone, etc. My own design was purely intended to be viewed on-screen only. <ding!> Further to that, imagine an interactive CV! Maybe that will be the next step down the road when I become fluent in action script.
I am personally hoping this one can’t be ignored though. Please ask me for a copy if you would like the full version.
