We think it is, but we don’t know anything about design. This is Convergence Senior Chris Spurlock’s resume, and it’s the best resume for a student journalist we’ve ever seen. But like we said, we’re not design-minded, so we want to get the input of people who do know a thing or two about design. That’s your cue!
Spurlock was able to put together this creative resume with the help of Photojournalism senior Rob Bratney.
If you think you have a resume that is even cooler and more innovative than Spurlock’s, or know of anyone’s that is, send it to us at Tips@JSchoolBuzz.com. Depending on how many resumes we get and how interesting they are, we might post them on this here website for the public to vote for their favorite.
