We all know how important a resume or CV is when applying for a job. It’s the first thing an employer will judge you on before you even get an interview. Some would even argue that this step is even more important that the actual interview. All designers might have similar skills, but who has more creativity?
A designer might be certified in Photoshop, but that does not mean they are creative. Knowing the software inside out is quite handy to speed up your workflow, but what’s the use if you lack the over a year ago. Check out some previous comments regarding this matter, some are positive and some negative:
“These are all really, really bad as resumes, and a lot of them are bad from a graphic design point of view. Don’t encourage people to turn in resumes like this.” – Anonymous
“I am very much grateful to you for posting such an innovative concept of creative resume. This stuff is really helpful.” – Shawn
“These CV’s would end up in the bin to most employers. A CV should be clear and concise, not a piece of artwork. You can show off your work at the interview stages. Employers have 3-5 secs attention span when looking at CVs. If yours is complicated to read then it will be discarded and the person below may get the interview.” – Neil
“Infographics are visually & mentally stimulating. Thanks for sharing!” – Creative Pile
Please remember this obvious fact: These are NOT great examples for everyone looking for a normal job, it is about getting a creative position.
