Liz Ryan is funny, irreverent, and quite willing to poke holes in corporate stuffiness. Her other stuff is great, too.
I am required to read resumes and CVs on a regular basis and I read approximately 4.38 lines of each new offering. If it doesn’t say something other than, “Seeking a position in which to maximise my experience, opportunity for growth, and blah, blah, blaaaaa….” I hit >delete< with a totally guilt-free finger.
It would be very cool to receive a resume/CV from a potential intern in the form of a Prezi, a Human-Voice Resume, or a YouTube video. I’d likely be enticed to watch/hear the whole thing.
