A visual resume is a resume that can present images and graphical information about the job seeker. This type of approach can offer an advantage to those with employment challenges, a reduced employment history, or issues with communication. For individuals who are subject to discrimination based on disability stereotypes, a visual resume can present positive images that can demonstrate the strengths of the individual, whether it is social or work performance.
Visual resumes are beneficial because imagery is powerful. Graphics can paint a better picture of who a person is and what they are capable of.
