  • This is an excellent way to standout from the crowd! Another creative idea I've read recently is to create an ebook relevant to your expertise. Speaks volume about what you do know. Thanks for this!

  • Yes, images speak louder than words. I tend to be drawn to view slideshows that carry more images than words. A great way to promote LinkedIn, Rashmi.

  • As a recruiter I would be really happy to see such creative presentation of self rather then looking at .doc
    Regarding the presentation I guess this is just story to promote slideshare and not the resume.

  • I think the feature is great. But this slideshow is not a slide resume. It is rather the story of someone who allegedly used that feature. on my linkedin, I will never say things like I toured the world after graduation, but now I got fired because of the crisis, job hunting is tough and I am thinking of giving up. But I'd be interested in resumes of actual people who actually spiced up their actual linked in with an actual slide show.
