HR Infographics

Can a generated infographic act as a useful way to visualize a person's resume? Well enough so that it can be used as a quick way to determine if a person has the right skills and experience to match a job need.  The idea is described in TheDrum. An example of such a visual resume is shown to the right.

Its a nice idea, but could be taken a few steps further.  Just scanning these might be interesting for saving time.  But matching them, again visually, to the needs of a task, might be yet more useful.  I am further concerned about the measures used, and the general sloppiness about assumptions that are usually used in an 'infographic'  Further, how can I make these displays interactive to better show matches between needs and values?    Worth a closer look.
