Graphics are all the rage on the web. Everyone seems to prefer skimming over a grid of photos rather than reading a block of text, but even the wordsmith in me will admit that there are times when this makes sense. For example, the visual portfolio. If your work translates into a visual medium, that’s how you sell yourself – with examples instead of a resume.
LinkedIn is rolling out a new feature that will allow you to upload photos, videos and presentations in each section of your LinkedIn profile.
In this example, Trent has uploaded a few examples of the advertising campaigns he managed while at Dynamic. When someone views his profile, this section shows up right under that section of his work history. Imagine if you kept this up from your very first job. It would become this mini-museum dedicated to your achievements and that’s pretty cool.
