I love simple ideas. Especially when the idea takes an already simple idea and improves it.
Michael Anderson, of Romney, West Virginia, is a graphic designer. He designed his resume to be the best resume I, and many others in the blogosphere, have ever seen. He graphically, and efficiently, charts his entire career. He includes in a graphic timeline all of his education and jobs, with overlays of job titles, skills acquired/used, software programs learned/used. A simple chart, Daily Intake & Output, tells a lot about his personality as it charts the relationship of coffee intake and focus, communication, productivity and humor.
Not only is the design sharp and very well done, but the color choices are very appealing and I’m sure would stand out on any pile of resumes.
Now if I only had a job for this guy!
