These resumes aren’t that snazzy… If I were an employer, I would throw these resumes in with the other junk ones without a second thought – except maybe the fourth one from the left down.

Just me $0.02.

As an employer I think it depends on the field in which you are applying. For a creative position for a younger person, some of these might be acceptable – but for a seasoned professional or corporate position many of these may give off the air that you are trying to “tart up” your experience.

Personally, I believe that a resume should reflect your personality, but not have to illustrate your personality. Most of these express “I think I’m gods gift to the world” or “I am self involved” or “I have never worked for a client, so I made my own logo using my name” rather than “I will work well in the established tone of your firm” or “my experience will compliment your firm”.

I would normally stay away from “name logos”, too much color/gradients, or arbitrary objects and rules – instead consider that a well designed resume is easy to read (especially for people over 40), has legible type (11pt and above), has clear content hierarchy, uses sparse typography (2 fonts maximum), and doesn’t overpower the information you are trying to convey with style. Remember, a resume is there to get you in the door, not be a replacement for an interview or portfolio.

    I am a mature visual communication student and I am looking at my old CV which is three years old and it is putting me off applying for an intership. My previous work experience has nothing to do with the career I am looking for but if I leave them out will it not look like I have never worked before?

    Reply

      Jacob Share says

      The whole point of a CV is to convince the reader to invite you for an interview.
      Seemingly irrelevant experience can still help by showing achievement, ability to learn quickly, etc. (if it’s true) but the reality is that’s hard to change careers from the outside unless you arrive with a portfolio of personal work, volunteer experience, or something that will show you can do the job even if you don’t have actual work experience in the new profession.
      More important is to put yourself in a position for success. Unless clearly stated in the description, internships are always aimed at students or recent grads. If that’s not you, spend your job search efforts elsewhere.

Considering that many resumes are now emailed (and most then printed), colors or graphics that exceed the print margins will suddenly look very unprofessional. It must also be considered how your resume will look in black and white.

After scrolling through these, I find Kevin Fox’s resume is the best design in terms of a unique, eye-catching layout that still maintains a good text-only, no BS approach. Those with the colors and logos strike me as 31 different flavors of the same brand of bubblegum. Fox’s resume is scannable, which is good for someone seeking a techincal or IT position, which he is. I give it big pluses for being able to target certain keywords and accomplishments in the right hand column without the use of extraneous formatting and marks such as bullet points or Wingdings which only distract. Good use of available space. In my opinion, a very nice job that reflects a competent, no-nonsense kind of person who values a balanced blend of style AND substance.

I’ve had a few CV’s on my desk over the years and while these look great, why do I need to know your address? You have objectives? Great but I’m not interested. Beautiful layout… well by the time your recruitment consultant has sent it to me, it will be a mess. I’m going to give your CV sixty seconds, make the important parts stand out.
Moral of this story: keep it clean, keep it simple and definitely two pages or less.

I make very good money, and from looking at some of the comments here by so called “employers”, I’d say what they are trying to say is, “Dumb down your resume’ because I’m a lazy arse bum and I don’t want to have to go through the hassle of selecting the RIGHT employee by actually having to READ it. I just want to find one that’s close enough to keep me out of a sling if my boss comes looking.”

Pathetic American employers. Get off your butt and do your job you bums. Effing Donald Trump syndrome. If you worked for me, with comments like I see here, YOU would be looking for a job in a short while.

Ben – you have it right on – Skip – keep smoking, buddy. And don’t worry, I’ll smoke one with you and tell you you are dead wrong to your face. As a hiring manager (note – not an employer) I receive approximately 50-75 resumes a day. Only 45 minutes of my day, at max, is dedicated to reviewing resumes. Do the math. You have 10 seconds to make me want to read more, otherwise your resume is getting round filed.

I need to know IMMEDIATELY what your SKILLS are. Not an expression of your personality. Not a cooky attempt to get my attention. Most of those go straight in the trash. Do two things – present your skills up front. Make me want to read more. Then, back up your skills with demonstrated performance.

It is that simple.

I’m not an employer or a hiring manager but i have sent a lot of CV in the last few years with quite good results and I can see that these are not good at best. Some waste the most valuable real estate of the page, others will look rubbish when printed and most will be too unconventional. Also, I imagine that different versions of MS Word will wreck formating.

If you are looking for CV hints and tips take this post with a massive pinch of salt and write a traditional 2 page CV with the most relevant information in the top thirds of the pages.

Most of these are awful – excessive graphics, fancy layout for the sake of layout, etc. But the simpler ones are very good.

An effective resume is one page, laid out for fast easy reading, and written with due attention to the five rules of effective editing: Cut, cut, cut, cut, and of course, cut.

I hate resumes.

Fresh Idea. If I were applying to a record label, art gallery, or porn store, I would consider using this type of format. Otherwise, just stick to black and white, and focus on making something that is cohesive and easy to read. These are distracting, in my opinion.

Eric says

As a business owner myself, and having spent large amounts of time in the past with resume experts, I found only 9 of the 36 resumes above to be even worth a second glance.

Here are the best tips that I can give to help anyone that happens across my post.

#1 – Have plenty of white space. Margins are your friend, they make your paragraphs seem shorter, and put less strain on the reader’s eye.

#2 – Keep the changes in font style to a minimum, only bold or italicize things that are important. The general rule in almost any print medium is 3 font style changes per print. Basically, choose a font and stick with it.

#3 – Get rid of the “design features”. These are all well and good when you are creating a poster, but these “design features” distract the person from the content, and will often lead to your resume being filed away. If you are in a design field, feel free to add something to it, but make sure it doesn’t distract. Ryan Gilden did rather well keeping his designs in the background from distracting from the text.

#4 – Bullet points are your friend. This is especially important in large companies that receive hundreds upon hundreds of resumes per year. Use bullet points liberally, often a couple words will do better than an entire sentance. Many of the larger companies out there don’t even read the resumes anymore, opting for a resume management system, and managers will often search by keywords.

#5 – Keep your contact information in one spot. I noticed on a couple of these they had their address in one spot, and their phone number in another. Keep them both in one spot, because it is easier to find the information, and many of the resume management systems will try to automatically pick out this information, but they have problems with the info being all over the place (or even vertically along the side).

Lastly, if you hand it to someone you don’t know, and after 10 seconds of looking at it, they don’t have any idea what your education, experience, qualifications, or even your name are, have fun even getting an interview.

Peace out, and good luck.

As someone who has hired my fair share of folks, I have to say that there is truth in both sides of the argument raging here. First of all, a good-looking resume will get my attention. BUT if it has typos, misspellings and/or is manifestly missing the key skills I’m looking for, it will get set aside. Second, at least in the fields where I’ve worked, the cover letter is more important than the resume. If the cover letter does not convey the writing skills, the personality, and the qualifications of the candidate, I won’t even look at the resume. Third, I think there is some validity to the point that these will work better in some fields (web and graphic design, for example) than others. But fourth and finally, anyone on this discussion who sets aside a resume because it’s to cute or graphically intensive is an idiot — I want to hire people with personality, brains, and spirit. A fancy resume design may not guarantee that, but it is going to get my attention.

BigMatt,
If you are personally doing 50-75 resumes per day I’d fire you for being inefficient. You can’t bring in good people because you can’t dedicate the time to actually look for them. You should have had a resume management method in place ages ago. Your a buffoon making fun of people that actually have intelligence.

Have fun wallowing in your stupidity while you and your alter ego Ben are both swallowed up by companies using their resources wisely.

Charlie is dead on.

I don’t find these to be the best resumes I’ve seen either but your comments make me KNOW I would never hire you nor work for you. I’ve turned employers down cold after meeting them. I’ve told them they have wasted my time to their face. I’ve been asked back by more than one for a second chance to get me to work for them.

You’re clueless.

What do you people want from a resume? It’s an open style document! The guys writting it can do whatever they want. Colour, images, charts, tables, creativity. You want only the information, ask them to fill out forms. You’ll obligate them to fill only the information you want, on a default template, perhaps even using some small computer system, like many software companies do. No graphics. No colours. No diversions. Just plain text. But, as long as you accept Word-based resumes, get used to this because you’ll see it a lot!

What this article is pointing out is the beauty of the resumes not the content. If you read most of them, these are inexperienced people, some still finishing up their educations, and vying for an employer’s attention. When you get to a level where you don’t need to put where you slung coffee, waited tables or had a stock-room gig, design is secondary. That’s why many employers don’t care for the design side, they’re interested in the experience. Cut some slack to these newbies, there’s nothing wrong with an attractive resume, but there’s a balance/limit for sure. Less is more?

Great collection of resumes here. I like the fact that the majority of them are still somewhat standard in the fact that the designer realizes that resumes still get faxed, copied, or printed in BW for HR departments. Finding a monochromatic balance with a color scheme is awesome!

Hi everyone,
First off- overdue congratulations to Ben. Way to go!

I’ve just posted a new list of beautiful resumes here:

38 More Beautiful Resume Ideas That Work

Chris- I didn’t realize that some of the links had broken over time, but they’re fixed now. Thanks for pointing it out.

Affordable Web Design- designers are lucky in that it’s so easy for them to demonstrate their skills (or lack thereof). And you’re right, it takes a smart designer to make a color CV that prints well in black & white.

jennifer, alee- I hope you’re following JobMob, there should be some information about great templates coming.

prelox, /greenpeace – most if not all can be done in Microsoft Word, but the images would still need to be created using another program like Photoshop or the free paint.net or the fantastic but harder-to-use GIMP.

Regarding the whole ‘do these work?’ debate- there were lots of terrific comments on both sides and I thank you all.

The most important lesson to take away is that you need to determine what will work for *YOU* by trying different things because what works for one candidate/recruiter may not work for another candidate/recruiter, even in similar context or industries. Use these resumes to get inspired. As Nedsferatu found out (thanks for sharing!), a bad resume can be the only thing preventing you from your next job.

Resumes are nothing more than a pack of lies and exaggerations. People using grandiose terms to describe simple tasks. An employer hiring from “facts” on a resume will always be disappointed when their employee eventually turns out to be someone different than they hired. A good resume should convey a persons personality. So design is everything. If you’re a funny person… be funny. If you’re an artistic person… be artistic. If you’re a simple person… be simple. Make it yours. Give your potential employer the help they need to find the right fit for the position they’re trying to fill.

As art, these are beautiful resumes. I would hang some on my wall.

As resumes, these are simply not workable. Not only would most be pitched right away (as some have said), they are impossible to import into the scanning devices that 99% of employers use now to scan through them.

I’m seriously amazed and disappointed in a lot of the childish comments on this thread, though. I guess creating great art is much more important than creating a career which both gives you nourishment of the soul and nourishment of the dinner plate.

Great idea for printed resumes. However, a lot of companies are requesting that you cut and paste a plan text resume into their job site.

These graphics and great ideas. But, wouldn’t help in this digital posting situation.

Maybe there’s a way to stand out from the crowd using the digital cut and paste.

Please forward any ideas of gpjanke@ gmail.com

For those of you who are making the point that these resumes may look beautiful but cannot be submitted digitally, you are missing the exercise. These resumes are intended to be seen by design professionals either on paper or PDF format. They are not intended to be processed by HR for accounting jobs. That is why they are “designed”. Many of the people who submitted these made very deliberate choices about the paper they would be printed on and the people they would send them to. They are not intended to be posted on Monster.com and if they are they are looking for the wrong jobs.

Tony P- most, if not all, of these resumes were designed by graphic designers who are very handy with programs like Photoshop, Illustrator and other design and page layout software. That said, you could use freeware like Gimp or Paint.NET to do the layout elements and then import the images into Microsoft Word or OpenOffice.

As a professional resume writer, I love it when I have a client in an industry that allows a really ‘fun’ look. However, the look of the resume can NOT get in the way of the content of the resume! The design or color should be enough to catch the eye, but not so much you think a 4 year old got at it with a crayon! Generally speaking high profile, executive type positions do not work well with much color or design. Where as a chef or interior designer has more leeway in the creative element. Your resume text should be in a clear, clean, easy to read font and format.

If you have a beautiful resume, but no one can read it, all you have is a beautiful piece of paper and a quiet phone.

Wow. Really dissappointed with the narrow minded air in these comments. Most of the highly designed resumes here are for creative positions, particularly as graphic designers. Wouldn’t a plain, traditional resume from a graphic designer seem counter intuitive?? If you are looking for a job as an investment banker, don’t use anything but a plain, B&W resume. But if you are young, hip and creative, and looking for a job in the same, please ditch the bland, traditional resume. Apply common sense based on your skills and job target.

I especially like the “Ryan Thomas” (black background) and “Sean David Coe.” I would really appreciate if those could be provided in template forms.

Yours most sincerely,
Baber Rahim

Seems like a couple of years ago this site had some decent commentary, even if I don’t agree with much of it, but since then it’s become nothing more than an advertising blog. Folks, get this, the world has changed yet again and most employers don’t even call you back or even acknowledge they got your resume no matter what it looks like. The rules now are call by phone, call again, call back, even visit in person if you can, and then call back again. All the fluffy fancy pretty resume styles won’t get past the lazy, ignorant and uncaring hiring managers that have managed to hang on to their jobs while laying off everyone else. HR folk are now, in my opinion, bottom feeders, and in general do very little good for their companies. Most companies large enough to have HR staff use HR expertise mainly to avoid getting sued by laid off employees and comply with employment laws and nothng more. Just remember who gets blamed first when the wrong employee is hired or turns out bad … not the employee but the HR staff. Do you think THEY are going to trust THEIR precious little careers to someone with a resume that looks prettier than their’s ? Even if you have the skill set that a company needs it still doesn’t mean you will get hired; you might show up the person who will be your boss who’s also done nothing more stellar than to keep their own job. If your resume shows that you are more experienced and are more educated than the CEO then ciao baby! Looking back at the comments I find #21 by Skip says a lot of what I’ve reluctantly come to believe is the norm in industry today. Is there hope? I hope so, but if the future depends on ever more conformity then why even bother? Go out and set up a business of your own … make your own rules and do something the conformists say can’t be done. Happens every day. And when it does happen, gosh, the number of resumes that get sent to you is amazing. I’ve even had HR people apply to me for jobs – what a laugh!

Just wanted to say that two years ago I found this page and borrowed some great design ideas for my application to an environmental job with a regional council in NZ. What I presented to them was definitely FAR more flashy and graphic heavy than a “standard” CV. Out of 130 applicants I was one of only three to get interviewed. I got the job and still work there. My manager told me that my resume leaped off the screen and that was what caught their attention… It was apparent to them that I had obviously spent the time to present myself. I think you absolutely have to use your discretion and contextualise your CV to the job you’re going for. But a unique design is what got me an interview, and that’s what we all want isn’t it?

Its obvious there are a lot of old hiring managers commenting here. I’m an old guy myself, and I’ve hired for many positions. As long as the content is good, I see no reason not to dress it up. Why would you old farts be offended by some pleasing layouts? It’s likely you’re threatened by the creativity of these younger people. Better move aside and make way then

There’s a lot of good comments on both sides regarding these resumes. But I’d like to point out, that for a Designer’s resume to be well designed, it most certainly doesn’t need to have graphics, fancy typefaces or extreme layouts. Careful attention to typography, negative space and the relationship between headings and body copy can create a design resume that is both black and white and extremely handsome.
In my opinion, creating an attractive, professional, and well designed resume without graphics is very difficult – and is a sign of a very skilled designer.
Anyhow, if applying for a creative position, it’s not your resume that is supposed to showcase your skills – but rather your portfolio.

Eye candy resumes. The resumes featured here seem to be for creative/designer type jobs. What about the not-so-hip entry-level bookkeeper or re-entering the work force person?
HR people pains me to hear/read that HR has no time to read resumes so that applicants have to make eye candy for them.
HR do your job. Read the resumes. Perfectly qualified people are being overlooked b/c their resumes aren’t blowing smoke up your holes. HR. What a joke. Fire HR.
Whatever man made HR rules need to be eliminated. Now. Put qualified people back into employment.

That’s the thing I hate about the Web – somebody does something creative, and there are million and one morons who point to something that’s MORE creative, or tell you you’re plagiarizing somebody else’s design.

To the morons: There are ~7 billion people on the planet. Chances are whatever somebody’s thought of when it comes to a ‘unique’ resume has been thought of before. We all get that. That doesn’t make that person’s idea any less creative, ’cause the world still needs plenty of creative people to work for their company.

As a side note however, there is a deeper, more systemic problem here. It doesn’t take much time for creative work to make it to the web. Once it’s there, it’s tweeted, blogged, reposted, referenced in Facebook, stolen and copied in no time at all. The Chinese have become experts at cloning whatever you’d like and have very lax copyright laws. They’ll soon figure out how to find some new creation they find on the Internet, clone it in a week, produce great quantities of it at 10% of the price, and then ship it to you direct(or build it for you) in 24 hours.

That’s the bigger issue.

From reading the comments, I have come to some very interesting conclusions.

1) Employers seem to care more about the content (obvious), but the attitude some employers seem to exude is a lack of investment in the potential employees. If an employer isn’t going to take the time to properly evaluate your resume and use a keyword search engine, then perhaps that company isn’t worth what you’re going to bring to their company. This is strictly my opinion as I am not an employer.

2) A bad design can be worse than no design. A good design is something that makes the viewer craving the content. On the other hand, there is something there is something interesting here. An employer should crave you’re content, not more design (unless applying for a design position). A way to check this is to have someone hold your printed resume arms length away from your face, if the resume seems more like a piece of art than a presentation of yourself then you may have some design cutting to do.

3) I find that a resume that is tailored not only to yourself but to the company that you want to work for (I.e. Color scheme for the company logo/website, take note of the PLUSES and not only the requirements of the job description, etc.) shows that you are knowledgable about the position and show a strong interest in the company. It also doesn’t hurt to work subliminally in your resume (mimicking the company’s projected image in your resume can create a familiarity that may work to your advantage).

I know this post is long-winded but these are all things that I have learned in both the resumes that I’ve designed and the jobs for which I’ve applied. Again I am not an employer or involved in HR, so I am not an expert on the subject, just sharing from experience.

Revision of above:

*2) A bad design can be worse than no design. A well designed resume is one that leaves the employer craving your content.

A way to check this is to have someone hold your printed resume arms length away from their face, if the resume seems more like a piece of art than a presentation of yourself then you may have some design cutting to do.

these resumes look great. creative, original and attention grabbing. All the elements necessary in getting noticed. The so called managers that have posted here blasting these resumes are idiots. Managers who still think in “black and white” are the past. What managers don’t like about these resumes is one thing: “talent”. These resumes show that these people have the know how unlike many managers who are sad boring human beings. Any manager who tosses one of these resumes in the trash is someone I would never want to work for or even have as a friend.

Agree with Charlie (66) – As a designer and analyst, why can’t my resume have a little colour. It is not excessive and it shows a creative and out of the box thinking style. Also it still clearly lists my skills and experience. I think some of these hiring managers etc need to take a look at their practices, as they’re probably letting a lot of good people go because they are so old school. Have a bit of an open mind.. As the old saying goes… Don’t judge a book by it’s cover!
