I know that obviously you would need to show some level of professionalism, but would this be one of those "out of the box" moves that could get you noticed?
In today business world there are many things you can use for your resume or CV. After all your resumes is tool to represent yourself. Even with educational background additional expertise or experience is welcome. Resume looks and requirements constantly changes.
