Marketing yourself – Resume Hat tip

Posted on: October 8, 2010

Job hunting can be very tiresome, sucky and all those adjectives which convey quite the negative sense of zero involvement in doing something. Just because of the great powers of the internet overlord, I just realized we can do the same using none other than Time Magazine. Oh well !!

Peter Norvig (Research Director @ Google) has this on his bio / self introduction page (Scroll down to the last section on his webpage).

 

From Time Magazine

Achiever of the year - You

 

File it under other achievements / information and it will quietly act as an inflexion point on the resume. In addition to the great keyword combination – “Person” “of the” “Year”.

Nay sayers might say that only Peter Norvig can get away with this, but yeah also the other 6 Billion homo sapiens as well.

In two words –

Ingenious and crazy style brilliance
