Your Life as an Infographic

Raises the interesting point that potential employers have a tedious task plowing through stacks of resumes. “In the age of data overload, the text resume is slowly becoming a living anachronism,” says the company’s press release. “The average resume is now over 2 pages long with more than 1000 words.” The question is: can this situation be alleviated via an Infographic?

The problem with these computer-generated infographics is that they are largely chart junk: graphics for the sake of graphics that do little to clarify and communicate. However, as a first attempt to strike out in a new direction we should not be too critical of the details. The time line presentation of education and past experience does communicate well. Other parts of the infographic need work.
