Elon Musk: entrepreneur, engineer, inventor, investor and billionaire. At 46, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO has achieved so many professional milestones that it's almost hard to list. And it would seem nearly impossible to squeeze his accomplishments in a resume without going on for pages, right? Well, a company has taken up the challenge and condensed Elon Musk's many achievements into a page-long resume. Why? To show that there's no reason why job-seekers should be sending out unnecessarily long and detailed resumes to prospective employers. And it may just inspire you to redo your own resume.
Resume-writing firm Novoresume first thought of distilling Elok Musk's varied achievements and experiences into a single-page resume in 2016. Keeping the language super-simple, and using some great design elements, the firm managed to fit Elon Musk's educational qualifications, professional achievements, skills and even interests into a one page resume.
It instantly went viral.
Since Elon Musk's professional capabilities seem to be unending, nearly two years later, the firm has reworked his resume once again - managing to squeeze in even more details.
Remember, the resume below isn't Elon Musk's real resume but there's no reason why you can't use it for some inspiration to edit down your own resume:
"Our team proved the concept of "Less, is More" that recruiters and employers ask for when receiving job applications, and through efficient use of design principles and advice from recruiters we managed to summarize all of the professional experience of Elon Musk in a one-page resume," the company says.
Of course, this template may not apply to every job-seeker in every field but the idea of keeping things as simple and clear as possible would impress any future recruiter.
If Elon Musk's achievements and career can be summarized in a one page resume, there's no reason why yours can't either.Click for more trending news
