My New Infographic Resume

I’ve written a few times about infographic resumes on Mashable, and each time, I feel like a hypocrite, because I don’t have an infographic resume. Well, folks, not anymore!

Freelance designer Snow White Powers designed my new infographic resume (embedded below). I enlisted her help, because she did an amazing job redesigning my business cards last year. I asked her to maintain my business card theme in the new resume template, and I’m really pleased with it.

  3. Hi Erica,

    I LOVE your resume idea! Im moving from Australia to New York in a few weeks and am looking for ways to stand out from the pack. I don’t know anyone at all in NYC so it’s going to be tough to get noticed but I’ve got over 5 years experience in the Online Marketing/Social Media industry (& am an internet geek!) so hopefully creating a resume like this might really help!

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Bryce,

      I’ve gotten endless compliments on my resume. It has definitely gotten me in the door at some of my top-choice companies. I’ve also had one bad experience with it, though – I applied to a company that used an applicant tracking system, and I got a blanket auto-response saying that I was not eligible for the position at hand. Interestingly enough, I’m one of the most qualified people in the industry. Too bad, right?

    1. Ruby, I really like this! I’m not gifted in the design department and hadn’t thought of using PowerPoint. Your resume is an inspiration for those of us who can barely get around Photoshop, let alone Illustrator!

  4. Wow, that is amazing, great way to showcase your work and much more fun too!

    Didn’t know there are 4 blogs you are maintaining at the same time! Which are they?

    Quite impressive how you are handling all these different gigs at the same time Erica, them being for all these high profile companies too.

    1. Hey Leo!

      The personal blogs I maintain are:
      http://ericaswallow.com (this one!)
      http://omniorange.tumblr.com (chronicles my favorite color)
      http://ericaswallow.tumblr.com (sort of defunct, but I still post when I’m traveling)
      – An anonymous blog (can’t tell on this one, b/c that’s the whole point). :)

      But I will also start managing the City Winery blog next month. But that’s not a “personal” blog. :) And of course, there’s Mashable. But ALSO, I just started http://swallowwinery.com, and will start putting content on that one soon as well. So, that will make 5.
