Insanely Creative Resumes – How to Impress Potential Employer

Writing a resume is always challenging task. You do not always know what information to include in your resume and what to skip. Let’s be honest – it is not always your experience or personal charm that makes an employer want to hire you. Sometimes there is something more behind the curtain. If you fail to compile an outstanding resume, you will not get a chance even to get your foot on the door, let alone the job. It is believed that a hiring manager spends 5-7 seconds in average looking through a resume taken from a huge pile of resumes. If that is true, it become obvious why people with significant experience fail to get positions they applied for. The answer is very simple – they have awful resumes.

Writing a resume can be even harder when you are applying for a very creative position - marketing director of designer. In this case your resume must be creative to show that you suit a position you are applying for. Here are just some examples of the most creative resumes:

  • One of the first examples of such incredibly creative resumes is a resume in the form of a candy bar. Yes, you have read it correctly – a candy bar! The author of this immensely sweet resume, Nicholas, applied for a marketing position and, as you might have guessed, got the job. The coverage of the candy bar included personal information, career experience and qualification. Ingredient section included the list of marketing areas where Nicolas had some experience. For those who are wondering if a candy bar was real, yes it was, and what is more, it was a delicious Nestle crunch bar.
  • Melissa Washin is a living proof that it is possible to get a job of your dream just after college graduation. Melissa studied graphic design and she wanted to show her love to sewing so she made a resume on fabric. She printed information usually included in a resume on iron-on paper that was transferred to a white fabric. Then the resume was sewed on various printed fabrics. As you may understand she achieved the result that she wanted to achieve without having significant experience.
  • Making resumes using designs of well-known brands has become surprisingly popular. Resume of Sabrina Saccoccio, whose resume was made as Facebook profile page, is good proof of that. It was quite convenient to include standard resume information as a Facebook page already has corresponding sections for personal information, education, job positions, and, of course, a photo. All she had to do was to extend it a little bit. Sabrina took a step further – she included a wall comments which actually were references. She also incorporated sound effects from melodyloops to add more creativity. Sabrina’s potential employer confessed that it was a brilliant idea.

As a matter of fact, there are many other ways, formats and designs that can be used to create really cool resumes. All you need is a little bit of creativity and enthusiasm.

Good luck!
