My big sis called this morning. She’s going through grad school and calls every once in a while to use me as a sounding board. This arrangement is fine with me as long as she cuts her diploma in half and I can hang part of it on my wall. Not to mention talking business trumps our childhood relationship when she used me as a punching bag, like all good big sisters do.
“So,” says Big Sis. “I have to create a visual resume.”
“A what?” Yeah, even though I’m online nearly every day and actually write a random resume or two for clients, I’d never heard of the digital resume until today.
My brain instantly translated this to the world of writing–and sure enough, some astute writers have their digital resumes complete–and how exactly an aspiring/professional writer can utilize this technology.
So, my dear writerly friends, have you heard of visual/digital resume before? If so, in what context? How does this technology impact you and your potential marketing of a) you as a writer/speaker and b) your books/projects/products?
And to any peeps regardless of background: what’s the buzz in your world regarding digital resumes? Do you think they are superior to paper? Do explain.
Inquiring minds really, really, really want to know!
