Visual Resumes and Web Portfolios

New arrivals to the traditional job search playing field are visual resumes and web portfolios. Job seekers in fields such as graphic design, marketing, visual arts and mass communication have been using these two tools for some time now. Visual resumes and web portfolios are now making their way into the mainstream job search tool chest. One important thing to remember is that the content these graphic documents needs to mirror that of the traditional resume!

Visual Resume

A visual resume is a document that maps your professional development and accomplishments in a timeline or infographic. It is brief and uses strong graphical elements rather than text to sell yourself.
