    These are great! I love seeing creative resumes like this. Thanks so much for displaying all of these, they’re great!

    These are awful. As a senior designer, I wouldn’t consider any of these people for a position, and it’s not because I don’t like “individual” cv’s, it’s simply that the examples you use here are examples of appalling design. The toolkit and poster have at least been designed by someone with some grasp of aesthetics, but the rest are plain ugly.

    Send your cv as a one page word file, and don’t waste people’s time with frilly crap like the stuff you see above. Seriously. It WILL get you noticed, in a very bad way…

    Awesome Ideas, Personally the Subway / Metro / Underground Map is the one for me

  8. SRS

    Great post and pictures. I like best the idea that people got jobs from handwritten notes. Nice work: stumbling thumbs up!

    Maybe the contents of these resumes aren’t the best, but A+ for the overall ideas. I’d consider these applicants first. But, can’t say the same for other up-tight hiring managers who are a-holes.

  11. Kisumi

    that was amazing,i wonder how the boss responses when they see those resumes.

    Hey guys! what’s the best software to use to create such amazing Resumes? I’m guessing InDesign,Photoshop. But my old laptop won’t let me install the full Adobe master collection so are there any other programes I could use to create a professional yet creative resume? cheers

  31. Jacob Share

    nicknackdesign- look for an older version of those programs. Not only are they more likely to work on your older laptop, you might even find them for free or close to free.

    I watched these Cvs months ago and I decided to act positively. Since I am a Microsoft Certified Professional mastering Power Point, I created my personal CV as an attractive Power Point show, I wish it could be displayed on this nice site. The link is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqlHkzvqisI

    Warning: Use with Caution.

    These resumes look great – well most of them – however I would suggest they be used when applying for ‘creative’ jobs only. I must stress use with caution as I doubt many employers would take them seriously.

    However with Social Media etc so prevalent today, we may see more creative resumes, video resumes etc.

    Bless, you forgot mine: cv.duncanmckean.com

    Kevin- nice work

    Duncan- yours is very slick, looks great.

    Thanks to both of you for mentioning them here.

  40. Rhea Bowden

    Let me know what you think of my resume. I am looking for critique. Thanks-Rhea HR Media Solutions

  41. Jacob Share

    Rhea- I find it hard to read, which is a problem you definitely want to take care of

  42. Smoore

    Very creative, but your resume is any potential employer’s first impression of you and some of these just say sloppy. Unfortunately the Recycled one also has computer spelled wrong twice under Education. It’s extremely important to proofread any resume!

  43. Phil

    It’s always best to show your best work. Don’t try to impress with a cv, try to impress with a strong portfolio! These cvs are largely inappropriate for anything but a page of curiosities on a website like this.

  44. Jacob Share

    gaurang- very creative, nice job

    Phil- for some people, especially graphic designers, such a creative resume IS just that, a strong portfolio

  45. Penelope

    It’s a shame that iPads don’t support Flash. I can’t see half of the creative CVs that are posted!

  46. Jacob Share

    Penelope- yes, that’s a bummer. The animated resumes are really cool
