Like a lot of us, Jordan McDonnell was really, really tired of sending out the same old boring one-page Word doc resume. How he could stand out in his search, he thought, with a resume that looked like everybody else’s?
So, he decided to do something a little different: He created a SlideShare titled “This is NOT My Resume,” in which he went into detail about his life experiences, general fun facts, and even funny “quotes” from his parents (“Jordan is a hard-working, intelligent, and ambitious go-getter. If only he could also be as good a golfer as his old man”). In short, it told the story his resume couldn’t tell—in an engaging, visual way.
