Wordling your Resume

I stumbled across a CareerRocketeer post that asks, “What Does Your Resume Say About You?” Though we spent much of election year 2008 wordling speech after speech to determine candidate’s key ideas and issues, this blogger suggests using Wordle with your resume to evaluate what message you’re getting across.

In my ongoing exploration to figure out who and what I want to be when I grow up, I’m typically eliminating things I don’t want to do.   I’ve yet to hit the niche where my skills and interests fully collide.  When it comes to to the things I love to engage in, it’s heartening to see my resume is actually starting to point me in the right direction.

I was pleasantly surprised by the pictoral representation of my resume because it does, in fact, use language that I talk about myself and my interests.   Pushing my career trajectory towards contributing to overall community wellness (social, financial, environmental), through my ethical leadership and project management, is where the work is in progress.
