I don't know if people noticed but these are all art/design related resumes. They are SUPPOSED to be creative. No one is sayin go to Home Depot with a resume like this. SMFH...

Hold on hold on, I like these samples alot. But I think I need to start asking more employers again what type of resumes they look for first. I though it was a golden rule where resumes should be neat, thought out, and straight to the point in written form. The graphics look good but seem to defer from straight fact.... Email, skills, qualifications, past-experience and the grand Q: What do you have to offer this company?

I think that it should be made clear, these resumes are geared for more of a graphics designer/Art/Tech field.

what these resumes say is basically, "i dont have the ability, to sell myself..and showcase my best talent in bullet points, a CV or short executive summary so i will try to impress you/knock your socks off using alot of widgets on a custom template"

there might be 1% of companies who would entertain ridiculous sh*t like this but you're going to do more harm than good overall... you'll probably get your a.ss blacklisted by more than few companies if you waste their time like this

when do you guys learn... the resume doesnt get you the job.. the interview does... you could have a mediocre resume/skills and if you're persistent/knowledgeable/passionate enough, you'll get the interview.. and not have to waste your time like a fu*king douchebag making widgets and graphs and sh*t

so come out swinging in the interview... the resume is not gonna get hung up in a hall of fame or somesh*t.. they'll probably trash it after the last interview and only hold on to it so remember your name and skills

the people who made these resumes prolly aint even out of college yet. how is an executive who got handed your resume 5 mins prior to your interview going to read and digest your background in time to hold a coherent interview?! he/she is gonna prolly troll you in your interview about how inappropriate your resume is for the target audience

i would only pull this sh*t if the ceo was known for being in favor of wacky resumes / hiring process
The only way to get an interview is have a solid resume. Human resources will go through the resume and only the prized individual will get a call. The employer will have much more time than 5 minutes to look through the resume and prepare questions. This resume won't land any jobs because it has too much going but you sound misinformed on how the process works.

yeah go to any graphic designer board and they're all over the place. some designers have normal templates for regular professions but a little more stylish. so those people lookin for a fresh new looking template just frequent around dribbble, deviantart, behance, etc.


i dont like those resumes with all the extra infographics and icons n little tidbits all over the place. a nice use of colors, typography, and good wording will get you in the door faster than some of the showy stuff like that guy last page said
see these are readable AND show off design skills. The ones in the OP are way too busy especially when the people looking over the resumes are probably scanning them for all of 20 seconds while looking for key words and that's it.

thats not necessarily true.. .some companies want employees with the best of the best stats b/c they're operating in a specific specialty... BUT some companies want passionate, hard working people who are willing and capable of learning their particular industry skills..

take consulting for example... i can guarantee you that someone with a 2.9-3.2 gpa and B+ IT skills will get hired over a 4.0 business marketing, or psychology major with no IT skills or interest

hell, someone with strong IT skills will get hired over a person with a masters+bachelors degree in some cases..

you can get the interview also by making a strong presence in person.. or online... show up to the career fair and talk to the Company representative in person.. or network online to know who the recruiting mgr is and talk with them on the phone or via email.. networking can make things so easy for you... especially if you got friends in the company

misinformed?!? i've done recruiting for my company for 2 years.. i know what types of people get weeded out... you dont have to have the best looking resume to get an interview... if you have an attractive background/skillset, the company will overlook that... if you have a poor resume and poor gpa and poor skillset, you're done
My bad man it kinda sounded like you were talking out of your a.ss but I take back what I said. Thing is a lot buddies of mine who were slackers in college got great gigs and this was with terrible gpa but they had a solid interview and used to do a lot of programming on the side. My one buddy got an IT position and he majored in finance, he was so accustomed to doing It on his spare time, they overlooked everything.

As someone who has a good gpa, I know gpa does't mean sh*t and the only thing that will get me the job will be my skills and some experience. Funny story, my buddy was clowning this dude who did a year and a half co op work term and came back to finish his degree almost two years after everyone. My buddy had a 3.9 GPA but no experience. Dude is working in the government for a sh*tty pay and he hates it. Fast forward the time the guy he clowned graduates and he got 3 offers and a great startin salary. Not to mention he knew people within the company.

The more I go to university the more I notice how my education is to an extent a little meaningless and the skills I acquire through hobby, the experience I get through volunteering or co op and the connections I have are faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar more important then what I get in the class or the degree itself to an extent. I hear what you learn and what you apply to the job could be either very highly correlated or completely different. Take a chick I know who got hired by IMB as a marketer and she got a degree in English. What you learn doesn't necessarily get you what you want.

You hire any people with degrees that weren't in the necessary field but were so impressed with their resume you had to hire them??
