A resume is a basic document that you send in the search for a new job. It is important to be clear, spelled correct … and interesting. While designers and developers are very creative people but their resumes usually do not differ much from each other.
In the difficult times in which it is necessary to work a bit on creative ways to attract the attention of the employer. Increasingly, this is done in the form of a infographic resume. It is a resume that demonstrates creativity, experience, achievements and personality at once. The problem with these biographies can occur only when your creativity to someone just might be ‘too much’. Generally this kind of resume are great choice in artistic / creative / IT occupations.
Of course, keep in mind that the performance should not overshadow the information – it’s nice that you are creative, but in addition you have to provide the content.
And how to make a CV in the form of infographics? Do you have a sense of drawing and design, it is best to do it yourself. But do not forget that your CV in the form of infographic will just a little more slightly open the door to a potential new job – primarily you need to prove that nice and visually appealing CV corresponds to the truth.
