This way you can show off your creativity skills to them along with your experience and qualifications.  Nowadays we are facing lots of competition in IT. And that is for creative positions. So Infographic is a great platform for us to showcase our creativity and chase the positions.  Infographic can be your stand alone example for the recruiters to judge your creativity. For other fields like Medical or Law, infographic may not be much useful because they might be looking for something else more than creativity.  For such fields standard CV may be more advantageous.

    Hey komal, very interesting post! I never thought of the info graphics this way. This I guess is really effective if you are going to apply for a creative job post. But as I am not an infographic expert, I want to know what color scheme is most suitable for a CV and are there any online tools available to do the task for me?
