Infographic Resumes Improve Job Search

I realise corrections is not for everyone. Corrections can be a high stress situation, but the rewards of helping others while protecting the public is a reason to consider this career.

However, some people have other interests. That is normal, because no matter what I tell you about a job, you need to make your own decision.

I could tell you that we have late night parties at McDonald’s. We actually eat the left over food before closing.

No disrespect to my fast-food workers because I enjoy me a Mc Rib sandwich.

However, what I do know is that some people are struggling to gain employment in this economy. The amount of people applying for the same job can be ridiculous.

If you apply for any job you can expect there to be some competition.

Get ready to send your job resume to the moon. (maybe not that high)

I recently read an article on Workawesome.com by Josh Tolan. The name of the article is “How to Think Outside of the box When Finding a Job”.

Because my motto is “helping you get hired”; I had to read this article.

I wanted to know what ideas Josh had for thinking outside of the box.

I mean it all has been done, right. What could make you stand out in a crowded field.

I was already skeptical before I read the first paragraph. However, I remembered the people who could possibly benefit from fresh ideas.

Infographic resumes

Josh explains infographic resumes could take your job search to a higher level.

Josh list video and idea map resumes as viable alternatives.

Video resumes are another way to get in front of potential employers, however this one may make some people more nervous.

  • Idea Map Resume is similar to an infographic. The difference is it is more focused on one particular position.
  • I looked at Idea Map Resumes and it seemed too difficult for me, so I will not try to explain it here, however infographic resumes intrigued me.
  • I was like infographics. Infographics are eye pleasing trends that have never really caught on yet.
  • I put aside my biases and I decided to do a search on the Ebay of pictures, Pinterest.
  • I was astounded by what I found.
  • I found a community of individuals not only sharing the graphics, but making good examples of how it is done.

Here is one great example:

When I saw this I was like wow. I had to do more research now because I have never seen an impressive display of design like this.

Not only is it astonishing. It is an efficient way to display your credentials.

An employer does not have to guess. They can read it fast.

  • It is categorized. It shows your creativity.
  • You gain points just by making the effort.
  • It is a power-point demonstration on one page.
  • I kept on researching this new resume format.
  • I found an article written by Erica Swallow on Mashable.com with 5.5k shares.

Erica titled her article, “4 Simple Tools for Creating an Infographic Resume”.

Then I realized Josh was onto something.

If this is nothing new to some of you; I apologize for sounding ecstatic.

However, for those of you who are not aware of this resume technique keep reading because I am going to tell you how to make your own.

Confirmation of this technology

Erica explains how infographic resumes are cutting-edge, but she also gives us some resources to create our own.

Vizualize.me is an app that uses your LinkedIn profile information for a web-based infographic.

After creating an account, a user can edit his or her profile summary, work experience, education, links, skills, interests, languages, stats, recommendations and awards.

A stunning infographic is created based on your LinkedIn details.

You are given an opportunity to edit your details to suit the position.

Advantages vs Disadvantages

This method is not for everyone nor is it for every job. However, it is a good alternative to the boring old paper resumes.

Most employers either discard your resume immediately or the resume never even makes it to their desk.

  • The goal of a resume is to be read, right.
  • It would be hard to discard a beautiful graphical presentation such as an infographic resume.
  • If you decide to make one, please share it with me.
  • I think these resumes are only limited to your imagination.
  • If you are not very creative have a friend do one for you.

Good luck and happy job hunting.


Alcohol Drug Relapse Recovery

When traditional methods are used to treat alcohol and drug addiction, the only indicator of success, for both the addict and the program is whether or not the addict has a relapse.

If someone who has used alcohol, and in recovery, goes on a week-long bender, chances are that they will feel a failure, that they have lost control. With an all or nothing approach to alcohol addiction, a relapse means total failure.

When drug addicts are placed on substitute drugs by traditional rehab methods, a return to illicit drug use is likewise considered a failure.

In any kind of detox and rehabilitation program there will always be a percentage of people who start the program and then relapse into their old habits and ways. No program can guarantee success because it only provides the guidelines and support – the addict does the rest. There are many risks and hazards to full recovery faced by the addict who wants to quit drugs or alcohol. Good holistic detox and rehab methods have a 70% success rate or better – particularly for those who choose to enter residential holistic rehab.

One situation in which relapse might occur is when substitute drugs are used which simply don’t satisfy the continuing need of an addict to deal with anxiety or depression. When rehabilitation treatments don’t deal with the emotional roots of addiction, and in fact tell addicts that they have an incurable disease – there are bound to be times when emotional stress will make the addict want to use. If substitute drugs are not powerful enough, but have maintained the addictive mind set then relapse is likely to occur.

When stopping alcohol or illicit drug use is the only aim of a detox and rehab program the addict is not in the positive mood of a person on a journey to recovery. Their outlook on life and terms of reference are totally depressed by a belief that their condition is incurable and one that they will have to battle with for the rest of their life. When someone who has these beliefs falls off the wagon and relapses – they have the stigma of failure and will feel that they are simply back to square one.

With holistic methods and treatments for alcohol and drug abuse, right from the detox stage, the addict finds a new freedom in life. All drugs are removed from the body – a person can feel really “clean”. With no drugs of any kind lurking around in the system, the addict is less likely to want to contaminate himself again no matter how stressed he feels.. Using holistic methods of detox which are 100% drug free help to prevent relapse by getting the addict physically free of all drugs and medications.

Holistic methods of alcohol and drug detox and rehab also work from the basis that once emotional healing occurs, a person will no longer have dependence or addiction, they simply won’t need or want to use. Emotional healing takes time. However, with each and every day, the addict who is receiving holistic care will feel that they are advancing towards full recovery. The more progress that has been made with emotional healing the less likelihood of relapse. With traditional methods the addict faces the same risk of relapse each and every day.

With the strength of purpose that holistic recovery brings – an addict is less likely to want to use, and more likely to reach out for more counseling and support than choose to use drugs again.
