Interactive Résumé

An effective résumé is crafted to condense complex and nuanced achievements into single, impactful statements. It’s a helpful tool for sorting applicants based on years of experience, certain keywords, or level of education—but it leaves quite a bit of ambiguity. Why is he talking about a community calendar? What is that acronym he’s using? Why did he spell résumé like that?

The purpose of this interactive document is to bring these lines to life, and to show—not just tell—the story of my professional life.

Thank you so much for your time and attention.
