My Resume Cloud
Today, I came across a very interesting tool for generating a word cloud – basically, a visual representation of the frequency of words in a block of text, just as you might find in the tag cloud of a blog. I was first made aware of this tool from this LinkedIn Answers question, which then led me to the following blog post.
It looked cool enough that I decided to map out own resume:
It is actually very interesting to see which words are most frequently used. Although most of them turned out just as I expected, a few of them were somewhat surprising. (Not inaccurate, mind you, just more dominant that I anticipated.)
It’s a pretty good exercise, and I’ll have to play with it some more to see what other uses I can find for word clouds.
