First, my sincere apologies for my lack of career related posts. As many of my followers know, I’ve been out of the country since May with limited internet connection. I’m slowly coming back to my blogging after gaining some great understanding on job seeking and HR on an international level.
Of course the first thing that many people discuss is presenting themselves on paper, via resumes or CV (short of “curriculum vitae”) as it is referred to outside the United States. In doing a bit of research, came across this great article by SaveDelete.com that showcased some of the worlds most creative resumes/CVs.
Many of these beautifully done resumes fall into the guidelines that I’ve been teaching for many years now. I think in the time that we are in now where we have more job seekers then we have employers, such creativity makes one stand out from the crowd.
I would recommend that anyone thinking of creating such a resume/CV to better understand how it would stand out in the industry you’re applying too. What may work when applying to a graphic design company for example may not work when applying to a sales company. Read each one carefully as many of them differ in industry, creativity and language of course!
Until next time, let’s get to work!
