  • Brilliant stuff, David. It should really be the other way around. People should be able to approach you because they know you're good and you should not need to beg for a job somewhere, where you're just another one in the row. There is so much more that really matters. Like how well you fit within a team. I could probably talk about this forever. Anyway. Good, you made a point. Thanks.

  • David-so loving this! Similar (but different) approach used by Hannah Phan's anti-resume method she rocked on SlideRocket (sliderocket.com). Yours, however, resonates more with me - I'm a female 'you'! Thanks so much.

  • David, that was compelling - and the fact you came at it from a different angle really caught my attention. I think your approach is incredibly powerful, because rather than simply taking the Industrial-era idea (i.e. resumes) digital, you were able to show much of what you are able to do, rather than tell it. Inspirational; thank you for sharing it! :)

Using my telepathic powers, I’ve influenced over65,000 minds with just 3 SlideShare presentations.With 18 years of professional design, I hit the 10,000 hour marker years ago.According to some statistics, that qualifies me as an expert telepath. ;)
