If your resume and CV (curriculum vitae, definition) look like the one below, then you’re failing to impress prospective employers, partners, and clients. You’re a creative professional! Look like it! Everything you produce with your name on it should sell you and your creative skills. Let accountants and sales people stick with the black on white, block-style resumes and CVs; as a designer you need a CV that stands out. I like to think of it like this: If all the applicants’ CVs are printed, and someone drops the stack of printouts, you want yours to be so eye catching it’s the one the interviewer picks up first.
The above example will never be the first one picked up.
By contrast, the 25 CVs and resumes shown below will stand out. Let them inspire you to greater employability! Click on each to visit the full version on the creator’s page.
