Writing firm Novoresume set out to show that high-impact resumes need not be a lengthy ordeal. Using Elon Musk as an example, one of the most iconic entrepreneurs of our time serving as Tesla CEO and Chief Product Architect, CEO and CTO of SpaceX, and Chairman of SolarCity, the firm condensed his long history of achievements onto a single page.
Beyond his most recognizable achievements in Tesla, and more recently the success of landing a rocket onto a floating sea barge from orbit, Musk is also involved in spearheading the movement for a high-speed transportation system known as the Hyperloop. So how do you mark the accomplishments of a man that has moved mountains and created three companies – PayPal, SpaceX, and Tesla Motors – with market caps each exceeding several billion? According to Novoresume, a résumé is much like a puzzle and their service helps you arrange the various bits of information into an image that best matches your story.
If your story is to expand the limits of human civilization through space colonization and you’re characterized by personality traits weighted heavily towards relentless perseverance, critical thinking and risk taking; and you work over 100 hours per week, every week; your résumé may look something like this.
