I love Infographics and Fast Company has them. Charts galore constantly being added to as  their “Infographic Of The Day.” They are beautiful and often interactive. I am featuring this one with an article by Cliff Kuang since the subject is very timely. I’m don’t necessarily agree you should chuck the resume but if you are good with making visuals, you could add one of these type of charts for yourself to get yourself noticed!
