Visual Resume: Now and Then

Posted on Oct 25, 2014 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Oct 25, 2014

Instead of a traditional resume, why not ask students to create a visual resume? Instead of one resume, why not ask students to create two? One early in the year and one near the end—bookends marking the student's growth in an unmistakable manner. This idea was born while watching the DOES CREATIVITY MATTER IN THE WORLD OF WORK? webinar. Archived here. Thanks to Tacy Trowbridge for the inspiration! When Tacy showed this slide, the idea blossomed in an instant. The resume, a traditionally—well let's be honest, it's a boring project for most students. I've always asked the kids to create the project in Illustrator or InDesign but, even though they create art like this, I've always asked them to produce professional-quality traditional resumes. (Stupid teacher!) This page (ignore the inappropriate examples) is just the tip of the iceberg of what students might be inspired to create. I can't wait to share this project with the kids next week!

This is a short tutorial on building a Turn-in Box in FormsCentral. FormsCentral is a terrific online program for going paperless!
