Just when you thought that résumés were beginning to get interesting, then there’s this: http://bit.ly/bCKaT7
which is a blog website listing some of the amazingly creative career documents that graphic artists have come up with… take a look! I found out about this site, courtesy of a member of Career Directors International.
Some of these examples are truly mind-blowing!! If anything, it is something to think about… and remember that looking for a job search is really all about marketing your brand and services to prospective customers (employers) who will buy those services.
However, right now, there is also a debate within the résumé writer community about creative résumés- is form valued higher over substance? Seems like that most writers are saying that the examples provided on this blog, while visually exciting, haven’t done justice to the content to clearly show their value proposition.
What do you think?
