The New Resume?

With today’s economy … being what it is … and the increased competition, and/or diminished available positions within many fields, Colin Dobrin of mindflash.com provides an interesting take on the resume. I’ve seen a few of these creative incarnations, but I’m curious if they’re articulated in other fields other than, say, Graphic Design.

I can’t imagine updating this beauty each and every time, within InDesign — but then again, it’s not my specialty. It won’t transfer to those #@$ forced — and amazingly intuitive — online application forms, obviously. And last time I checked, the common thought was to ditch the whole “Objectives/Goals” heading, as it was outdated and repetitive. Regardless, I like the visual, and its intention to stand out from the onslaught of a seemingly endless parade of resumes.
