Updating my resume

I want to get back to writing here, but other things on the list always take priority over writing here.

I spoke to my sister yesterday, and she asked me to share my resume. It had been a while since I updated my resume. A few things had changed since I last worked on my resume. An hour later, I had the resume updated and learned a new system called “LaTeX.”

LaTeX is a high-quality typesetting system; it includes features designed for the production of technical and scientific documentation. LaTeX is the de facto standard for the communication and publication of scientific documents. LaTeX

I thought the resume looked beautiful. It was straightforward to read and had all the information I wanted it to have. I shared it with a few friends, and one of them had an honest opinion.

“Owns a Macbook but has zero creativity” …

My initial reaction was, “But look at it. It’s so nice and clear”. He said it was missing colours and design.I agreed.

It made me go back to the drawing board. After a few hours of choosing the right font, the right colours, a good layout, the same resume looked so much different. I liked this version too.

I love design. It helps the same information be communicated/consumed in different ways. Each iteration makes it better or worse, depending on whom you ask.

Overall, quite a fulfilling day. My resume has been updated and shared.
