Everything my résumé wanted to tell you (but didnt know how!)

1,535 views

Published on

While recently updating my résumé I became frustrated at how inefficient the standard formats and templates are at conveying information. I decided to create this presentation as an accompaniment to provide to people along with my traditional resume - the best of both worlds!

I've tried to keep it fun and easy to follow while still providing people with a clear sense of what I can do and who I am as a person. I hope you enjoy viewing this presentation and would welcome any questions, comments or feedback.
