The bar for resume awesomeness has been set by the Robby Leonardi interactive resume. Leonardi, a multidisciplinary designer from New York City, has created a resume that looks more like a level from 'Super Mario Bros.' than something a human resources person scans for keywords. The resume has all of the designer's important education, work history and skills, but those facts are presented in a fun and engaging way.
The Robby Leonardi interactive resume can't exactly be played, but you do make your way through it as if you were playing a game. The resume takes you underwater and to the cloud, so to speak. While some industries might not appreciate such creativity, it looks as though Leonardi should be able to quickly land a job as a web designer.
