Resume & CV Writing

It is natural for people to be attracted to aesthetically pleasing images and visuals. In fact, according to Salesforce, 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual.

Taking this into account, people would rather process information and data visually through imagery and video. This is why there is a magic to the art of infographics. Infographics tell a story and allow a great visual to be created. This explains why people are increasingly creating infographic resumes to showcase their skills and talent.

Infographic resumes can make you stand out from the crowd due to the hundreds, or thousands of resumes that hiring managers have to go through on a daily basis. So how do you create a great infographic resume?
