Joe Biden’s Resume Proves That Third Time’s a Charm (Infographic)


Last edit November 9, 2020

Did you know that the 2020 US presidential election was Joe Biden’s third time running for president? What’s more, it took him 33 years to finally win. There are so many threes in this story! At Kickresume we’re not a superstitious bunch but even we got to admit — sometimes three really is a charm.

In any case, this election seems to be finally over. Sure, the whole thing will probably drag a bit longer than we’d want, since Donald Trump refuses to concede, but that’s fine. Joe Biden may not have all the time in the world but he’s got patience. After all, he’s been waiting for this presidency since 1987.

But today’s politics is a dark place and I’m not going there. Our infographic resumes are not about making a commentary on current events.

No, they’re meant to draw your attention to people with interesting careers and maybe let you learn something useful in the process. Yes, it’s 2020, but we should still be able to learn something even from people who belong to the opposite political camp. 

What can we learn from Joe Biden’s story apart from patience, then?

We can learn that our in-born limitations don’t get to define us (he overcome a debilitating stutter), that power can be given up (he wanted to give up his seat in the US senate after his wife and daughter died in a car accident), that even you might be able to endure a four-hour everyday commute for thirty years, and more. 

Anyway, Joe Biden’s resume is long and interesting but how did he end up in the White House? You’ll find out in Joe Biden’s infographic resume below!
