Word clouds allow you to see at a glance the relative frequency of words in a body of text. Big words jump out at you, visually indicating the dominant themes of the text.
This is handy for your resume, as you can quickly discover that you might be over- or under-emphasizing themes of your professional history.
Give it a try to see for yourself.
Do the largest words in your resume word cloud represent what you want a hiring manager to understand about you?
Absolutely, and you should.
You just need to export your LinkedIn profile as a PDF, then upload that PDF above.
We don’t do anything with your resume other than process it for the purpose of displaying the word cloud. We don’t send it anywhere or share it with anyone.
The word placement algorithm was written by Jason Davies, who open-sourced the code under the name d3-cloud. It's a tricky algorithm, so thank you Jason for sharing it with the world.
