Definition Unit

The first resume was a traditional one where we could collect all the information about us and our life.  As first step, the traditional resume was important in order to have a clear idea of what our skills, experiences and goals are. It was fun to list all the achievements and goals even though it was hard to remember every single one of them.

The visual resume is the one that would make a employee shine. It is fun to look at, fun to make and fun to share! It is jut a modern way of presenting yourself and show to your future boss what you are capable of.

Then we created a LinkedIn profile that we could share with other people that we know and don’t know and see how we are better than others or what we could improve about our resumes.


This is my traditional resume:

My visual resume:

Digital Literacy

I personally think that it was really interesting to list the results of our hard work, sometimes you just forget about those because you think they are not  important until you have to look for a job and at that point you realize how important they were.
It was challenging to use websites and visual resumes but once you understand how it works, it is not hard at all.
