- Student Leadership Committee January Challenge
- Winter items donations: The SLC will ask each program to create a donation box in their program area where hats, gloves, and extra large winter jackets can be collected. At the end of the month, we will ask for these donations to be brought to Student Leadership for collection and assessing the most generous programs. Hats and gloves will each receive 500 “points” for their program, and jackets will earn 1000.
- There will be a penny war competition. Rules for this competition will be posted separately, but each penny will earn a “point” for the programs.
- A food drive will run at the same time and each ounce of non-perishable food item donated will receive a “point.” So, a 12 oz can of Spaghettios, for example, is 12 points.
- At the end of January, total points from all three challenges will be calculated and the most generous programs (s) will receive a pizza party lunch, and and afternoon of skating and hot chocolate at the rink. Runners-up programs will receive prizes as well.

9:50 The Visual Resume – Portfolio Option
A visual resume is a nice addition to your traditional resume. Above are some examples that showcase some different ways to making your Resume Page on your Portfolio standout.
The advantage of a visual resume is it draws the eye to your webpage and does not have to include everything on your resume, just the items you think are most exciting or interesting. Going outside the traditional resume give your viewer something exciting to look at.
Harper’s example was made in Illustrator (you can use Photoshop too) and then saved as a .jpg. Used the visual resume as the landing page on the portfolio and then created a call to action button on the page to get the user to download the resume. (Harper was a CAWD2 student)
Emile’s is a nice example of mixing an image and some basic html. Emile is a fake student. You can see this also is a nice layout too.
Here’s another example from a previous student – made in Illustrator.
A visual resume is a nice option to spice up your page and make it stand out. It is not a requirement.
Other things you could consider doing on your Resume Page:
- Create a heading of Resume Highlights and list a bunch of highlights
- Add CSS to your HTML resume (if you coded a HTML resume) to get some custom looks – Student Example
- Add the display element to create a drop down effect
- Add an accordion
- Highlight some of your most meaningful skills – Example
All Resume Pages must have a downloadable PDF version available
A good way to add a downloadable resume is to save a version as a PDF in your files. Then encourage people to have a look at it with a call to action button – check out what I mean – I made one as an example
If you want a window to open up in a new tab – just be sure to add target=”_blank”
<a href="#linktoyourresume" target="_blank" class="button">Resume</a>
//if you want it to auto download you can just add the word download:
<a href="#linktoyourresume" class="button" download>Resume</a>
ProTip: When naming your resume include a datestamp: BohmannResume2023.pdf
