Are Creative Resumes a Good Idea?

Everyone likes to think they’re special. So why not communicate that to potential employers with your resume? Applicants have used Vine videos, infographics, and even candy wrappers to replace the standard CV.

In a competitive job market, creative resumes are a great way to show off your design skills and stand out from other applicants.

Unfortunately, they’re also a great way to annoy recruiters who are attempting to sift through hundreds of other resumes. When it comes down to it, it really just depends on the situation.

Where Are You Applying?

Creative resumes certainly aren’t for everyone. Are you applying to a graphic design firm, a funky art gallery, or an uber-hip ad agency? Then yes, they might appreciate an eye-catching, well-designed resume that reflects your unique personality. Are you applying to be a pharmacist, an accountant, or a bank manager?

Chances are, hiring managers will appreciate a traditional resume that gets straight to the point: your professional experience. Most importantly, follow instructions. If they ask for a basic resume in 12-point font, don’t send them a hand-lettered masterpiece.
