A smart layout to easily visualize your skills
We have read many posts about the use of infographics in the resumes.
First, let’s explain what this is about. You have already seen that resumes can be overly simple. This type of layout is very easy to identify, as it is merely just about a text (different sizes and effect for the section titles and names), and white background.
And then you have the resumes that use a more modern design (even to extremely creative… but we won’t describe them in this post). These templates intend to add some style and graphic elements (infographics, icons) so that your CV is easier to read – and let’s say it: more appealing.
Most of the time, the infographics are used in specific sections of the resume like the skills, strengths, knowledge, and interests. The infographic (or icons) can be scales or chart type graphics (among others). On the contrary, the experience and education parts are generally descriptive and classic. They use just text, paragraphs or bullets points.
But as some “specialists” argue: is adding infographics to your resume a dumb trend? Let’s cut to the chase – we don’t think that, AT ALL!
Adding graphic elements eases the reading and makes the sections easy to find. Also, that can make your resume aesthetically (more) pleasing and eye-catching. That first impression can make a decisive difference.
OEDIPUS is a smart template for your resume. It perfectly organizes all your sections in 1-page thanks to a clean two-column layout. And the lower part of the page will highlight your skills and interests. Horizontally aligned red bubbles illustrate your most significant skills. The area is proportional to your proficiency level. Use icons for your interests, or just list them.
