Visual Resumes and Visual Portfolios

When I teach Visual Literacy for Management, or similar courses, I often give students the task to create their visual resume. Why? Managers are often too busy to read all the details of a resume, and anyway most CVs look very much alike. A visual resume is a great tool to stand out of the crowd and to really enphasize what makes you unique.

I just got the first book on the topic “The infographic Resume” by Hannah Morgan. It’s a much needed book and nicely structured. There are some good examples too.

As a result of the assignments, some of my students have come up with really beautiful examples of visual resumes! Have a look:
