'Mad Men' Fans: Here's Don Draper's Resume!

He's one of the most recognizable TV characters today: a handsome, scotch-swilling, womanizing advertising executive from the 1960s haunted by a dark—some would even say sinister—past.

But what would Don Draper's resume look like if the lead character on "Mad Men" were looking to leave his ad firm, Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce?

I took a crack at a faux resume for Draper (played by Jon Hamm) after looking around the web, even looking back into many of the Mad Men episodes that date back to 2007. You can see it below, presented in a style reminiscent of the '60s: a dull, boring type font that shows the limitations of the typewriters (remember them?) of that pre-personal computer era.
