The Infographic Resume: A New Marketing Tool For Job Seekers” with Hannah Morgan, Job Search and Social Media Strategist

hpm 2Are your clients looking for a new way to stand out? Visual and infographic resumes deliver that extra punch. No, they won’t replace the traditional text resume…yet, but due to the fact that more than 50 percent of the population are visual learners, these visual aids might just click with hiring managers.

Marketers use infographics to simply convey large quantities of information, so it is a trend worth jumping on. In fact, from 2010 to 2013, the number of internet searches for the term ‘infographic’ grew 800 percent. It will still take more than pretty pictures to convey a career story, but infographics offer just one more format to help job seekers stand apart.

This session will discuss:

  • Why an infographic resume has not replaced the traditional text version.
  • When and where to use an infographic resume.
  • Industries and occupations most likely to be receptive to visual resumes.
  • Tools to create an infographic resume.

Hannah Morgan is a job search and social media strategist. She delivers fresh advice to job seekers as she guides them through the treacherous terrain of today’s workplace landscape. Hannah’s experience in Human Resources, Outplacement Services, Workforce Development and Career Services equip her with a 360 degree perspective of job search topic.

Join us as Susan Whitcomb shares the research she recently completed on behalf of Career Thought Leaders around the self-talk that causes job seekers to be optimistic and effective in the job search or, conversely, discouraged and ineffective.

Jason Alba designed JibberJobber during his first real job search beginning January 2006. After having a successful career in IT and business strategy, Jason found himself in the job market, which was supposedly a “job seeker’s market.” Jason quickly found that a job seeker’s market does not mean the job search will be easy or short. Frustrated by the lack of real tools for job seekers, he decided to move forward on a tool that allowed a job seeker to manage and organize a job search. As the months passed, and as Jason learned the importance of networking, he incorporated a major networking piece into JibberJobber. This has shifted its focus from a tool just to be used during one job search into a tool to be used to manage job transitions during your entire career. Jason is author of “I’m on Facebook – Now What??? and is currently working on “I’m on Twitter – Now What???”
