So what do you do when you want to make a career change at the rip old age of 26? Jordan McDonnell, currently a financial analyst, wants to find something more creative but found that his CV was being ignored.
He took to Slideshare, a tool that allows users to upload and annotate PowerPoint or other presentations, and uploaded a witty, more visual résumé, and his work has gone viral.
“Applying standard CVs to marketing companies and social media companies, they automatically discount me because of my background,” he said [to thejournal.ie]. “So I tried to do something that reflected their industry.”
I think he’s got their attention.
