A journalism student who wants to do infographics made his whole resume into an infographic.
Check it out on J-School Buzz here…here’s a sneak preview.
Our critique: all that blue is a bit overwhelming. We get the desire for a consistent color scheme, but it’s all a bit much, especially when (later down in the resume) you need to continually refer back to the legend to distinguish between the different shades.
His full resume also contains, y’know…words. Not just pretty pictures, which we applaud.
According to J-School Buzz, the resume worked (at least after it went viral): he’s received numerous job offers, including some from unnamed print and online news organizations.
