Alright, now I’m sure you all know what a resume is. In fact, some of you may have had to write a resume when you applied for admission or for some of your classes. How many of you used a template from Microsoft? Be honest. Now, how many people do you think use that template on a daily basis?
Let me first say that there is nothing wrong with the templates you find on Microsoft. They are efficient and put the information a future employer would like to see in a format they are familiar with. Familiar. Do you pay attention to things you’re already familiar with? Do you want an employer to simply skim over your resume because he/she already knows where the information is? I don’t!
So here is an alternative. It’s called a Prezime. Instead of the traditional one page resume, you take all of the same information and put it into a Prezi Presentation. It adds color, animation, and a bit of flair to introduce you to your next possible employer.
WARNING: Know your audience. A Prezime is not perfect for all occasions. If you want to be a teacher, great! Try a Prezime. If you want to be a lawyer, you might want to stick with tradition. As long as you are cognizant of the position you are applying for, you should be good to go!
