I must credit Lisa Abate for this fabulous idea, but I was inspired to create a Wordle using my resume. It’s fairly common knowledge that some organizations use word scans to weed out applicants. And while I’m not really out in the marketplace for a job, I kinda wondered what my resume says about me.
I have to admit that I’m pleasantly surprised. Though, I do wonder how many people can claim eLearning and Agricultural as similarly-weighted keywords. I suppose I am a bit of an odd bird in that respect.
Of note, I will be covering the chapter over resumes in my Business Communications class in another week or two. I think I’ll have my students conduct this same exercise as part of their review process before submitting a final version. It’s a great way to look at the big picture and revise your wording accordingly.
