You don't have to be a graphic designer to have a gorgeous résumé. But it sure helps.
Carol Lim's insight:

These newfangled and creative visuals in presenting a resume may seem impressive.  But pause and consider the target audience.  Sent to the wrong industry, the HR officer reading it may think you are too self-absorbed and vain.  Serious backfire.  Know yourself - but most all, know your audience!

Chunking Content: Not just for e-learning

Chunking Content: Not just for e-learning | Effective Communication | Scoop.it
"Reading content on the Internet has changed the way people process information, and nowhere is this change more obvious than in fields where design must adapt to new technology such as in eLearning. eLearning course creators need to refine their content to suit learners’ behavior and accessibility to training. This is where chunking comes into play."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 1, 2014 5:56 PM

If you design a course, face2face or online, it is important to keep up with information on how people learn, and today we know that chunking information is critical. This post begins by describing what a chunk is and why they are important in learning. It them moves on to the five tips (quoted below):

1. Set a chunking limit

2. Chunk with coherance

3. Use the right formatting

4. Keep chunks short

5. Use the inverted pyramid method for for prioritization

Each of these is described in detail and many addional resources are included in the post. You will also find a SlideShare on the Basics of Content Chunking. If this concept is new to you it will provide additional information. However be aware that the number of items that can be held in short term memory varies, and the rule they use is not accurate for all people. A recent course I took on Coursera, Learning How To Learn, suggested that the number of items most people can keep in short term memory is four.

A Perfect Example Of A Great Press Conference | Mr. Media Training

A Perfect Example Of A Great Press Conference | Mr. Media Training | Effective Communication | Scoop.it
Last week, an audio technician for the television program Cops was killed by friendly fire while filming a robbery at a Wendy’s in Omaha, Nebraska. The Omaha police chief, Todd Schmaderer, delivered an almost perfect press conference—one that stands in marked contrast to the shameful media interactions in Ferguson, Missouri—that should be studied by PR professionals as a terrific example of how to communicate in crisis. PR pro Dave Statter, who writes the excellent STATter911 blog (and wrote about this story first), called this “one of the most effective and timely presentations following a police involved shooting I’ve witnessed.” He’s right. Chief Schmaderer did many things right in this press conference. Below, you’ll find the five things that stood out to me most....
