    I know many like Info graphics vs. tips sheets that require extensive reading. As is often the case many ideas and tips are a matter of opinion although I concede that with a quick viewing I did not see too much that I disagreed with with the possible exception of elevator speeches. Evidently that is a difficult concept and I only occasionally hear one that peaks my interest. It is a topic that is often discussed and clearly needs career industry experts to develop commonly accepted guidelines including examples tied to various wok sectors

      Good point, Vicky. It’s easier to make a cheat sheet that works when there’s best practice consensus. Sometimes though, the author would do a better job to target more specifically because some practices work better in a given industry.

    Thank you Jacob; this is great material. And how very generous of you!

  3. SARA

    Great content here, Jacob. I will definitely use it personally and for my career prep workshops.

    Thank you!

      You’re welcome, Sara. I’d be curious to hear what kind of feedback you get about these during your workshops.

  4. Sara

    Got great feedback. Thanks again!

    I noticed in the Kickresume infographic Office Job there is a typo – “Administreted”. I guess not everyone working in an office job is detail-oriented!

      Too funny, Sara! Good eye. Maybe Kickresume need better proofreaders…
