Create Your Free Infographic Resume

Last July, I wrote about how I’ve been waiting since April 2011 for to provide me the ability to create cool infographics with little to no graphic design skills – and for free. Because I’m cheap budget-constrained.

Today, I finally got my wish!

I’d seen some email notices from them about their Marketplace where you can locate people you could pay to design infographics for you; but, if they told me before today that there were free plug-and-play ones out there, I missed it. That whole inbox zero thing never really worked for me.

Today, however, I actually opened the email from them and read “Check out our Visual Resume data visualization tool!” Which I did because that sounded like a cool addition to the visual CV/portfolio that I created on Pinterest.

Turns out this is one of handful of co-branded infographic templates now available on the site. Most are what I’d classify as just-for-fun like one tied to my Facebook stats and the Sherlock Holmes TV series called “Elementary.”  But, some more useful ones allow you to create a Venn Diagram (might try that one to update my Enjoli Woman post) or a visualization of Facebook Page statistics.

Then there is the newest one for creating a visual resume. You just choose one of their templates – sponsored by Kelly — then log in with your LinkedIn account and boom! There are currently five styles to choose from, but hopefully there will be more in the future because I was almost tempted not to share these for fear everyone would start to have one like mine. <wink>

    I like this visual resume layout a lot. I played around earlier this week with Vizify but it didn’t display quite as much detail as what you show from visually. I was looking for an easier way to replicate what you already had on your Pinterest resume ;-). I really want to be you in the next life! Anywho, thanks as always for the tips on the latest tricks of our trade.

    Aww… You’re going to make me blush Dora! Glad you found the templates helpful and now I need to investigate Vizify.

    Although I really like the idea of using a free service, I never found the customizability that I needed to show off my creativity.
    I ended up making it myself in Photoshop– check it out:

      Nice work! If I had the time and skills, I agree that custom would be the way to go.
