We’re always looking for creative ways to showcase a job applicant’s core talents and abilities. There are many examples of how very creative people craft a visually appealing resume. But what about the rest of us who aren’t that creative?
I have an idea for how to briefly present yourself visually to an employer – it’s untried, so I need people’s responses.
This is a Wordle Word Cloud showcasing the Core Value Proposition of a client who is a non-profit development professional.
This word cloud It would be accompanied by a cover letter and a resume.
Or would it?
Does it tell you something about the person? Is it useful?
Would it be too much in one package?
Could it go on top of a resume in place of a profile?
Would that create too much of a challenge for the technologically less-able?
I don’t know…I’d love people’s opinions on this!
The issue is it should be a genuine tag cloud – i.e. it should represent a real dataset (such as your portfolio), otherwise it’s just a pretty graphic you made up, really.
Great point and I agree! It would have to contain your core capabilities and skill set at very least.
