Amy Mayer has another template for creating a “Prezume” on an iPad. A companion blog post and YouTube video (below) explain how to use the template.

Prezi is certainly not the only tool you can use to create a visual resume. The CBS News website has an article about 3 ways to make stunning visual resumes. The image below links to an article about Vizualize.me, featuring an imaginary resume for actor Ashton Kutcher.
