Be the Signal, Not the Noise: Develop a Visual Resume

Recently, I presented a workshop on visual resumes for faculty and staff at my school. Visual resumes have been a standard in the on campus Professional Communication and Presentation course. My students create amazing supplements to their traditional resumes. I shared a bit of information with faculty and staff about what a visual resume is, why it matters, and why a paper resume is just not enough. Check out my latest slideshare upload here:

Tweak of the Day: LinkedIn Bootcamp

Ah, Monday, the end of vacation. Well, for a workaholic like me, it’s just another day to tweak and get ready for class tomorrow (though I think some much needed cooking and baking time is in order tonight as a sort of final farewell to the pure unadulterated joy that is holiday eating). This is what updating the overhaul of the online version of Professional Communication and Presentation was like:

But, now that that’s done and out of the way (thanks again to superteacher, Alex Rister), I can move on to today’s tweak of the day, which comes to us from Column Five Media.

LinkedIn Boot Camp

As the introduction to this awesome infographic asserts, LinkedIn is the “dark horse of social media.” I myself have a LinkedIn account, but rarely update it, in fact, it’s not even complete. However, devouring this visually delicious infographic, along with a bit of prodding from my resolutions center (one of my resolutions this year is to apply for x number of jobs and to really market myself effectively as a teacher and designer), has made me recall just how often I emphasize to my students the importance of a strong professional persona. I have gotten pretty good at building physical muscle and keeping active, I think it’s time I start working on building my LinkedIn muscle. What do you think? Is LinkedIn truly as worth the effort as this infographic claims?
