Visual Resumes

A friend sent me this article on visual resumes- essentially a modern-day alternative to a standard resume. Visual resumes are “narrated through pictures” and include very few words. The author of the article suggests using one in your next interview.

Last night’s Compass module speaker urged the Compass Fellows to do something different and crazy when networking and applying to jobs. But are visual resumes too newfangled? If you present an aesthetically pleasing but content-poor visual resume, do you stand a chance against your more conventional peers?

Something to ponder!
