Oh how I love infographics and I love the infographic resume. So creative and But some would say that the infographic resume isn’t for everyone and that it should just be limited to graphic designers. Oh, I so disagree! Having been a hiring manager for over a decade I think creativity goes a long way in getting a job and it certainly makes you stand out in an already crowded sea of resumes.
If you are not a designer or not all that tech savvy there’s no need to panic. There are plenty of sites out there to help you make your resume graphically appealing such as Infogr.am , Visual.ly, Vizualize.me, and Picktochart.
Note: Keep in mind that graphic resumes don’t usually upload into career site resume uploaders, so have a text one on hand for those instances.
Below are infographic resumes for various job types from journalists and social media strategists to operations managers and disaster recovery.
