  1. @An Vu Yeah, I'm pretty amazed by the amount of creative put into these resumes while keeping a professional look. And a creative resume, definitely goes long ways when it comes to potential jobs. It's​ a great way to stand out from the mounds of resumes jobs receive.

  2. While these resumes are all very attractive, well designed, and laid out, if you want to get your resume in the hands of an actual hiring manager or HR person, none of these are a good idea as I don't think one of them would make it through an Applicant Tracking System (ATS).

    If you are applying to any mid to large sized companies, you still have to stick with the plain & boring resume layout as they all use an ATS during the first stage of hiring new employees. This forces you to stick to specific fonts & page layout guidelines to ensure the ATS wont throw it out.

    Unfortunately, the ATS still can't get by the fancy designs and layouts found on this page. The only place these will work is when you can be sure a human will be reading your resume.

  3. Many of these *are* very attractive, and are all full of great design and layout ideas. That said, Isaac Mann is correct about the use and needs of ATS. When contacted by a headhunter or smaller-sized prospect, however, many of these would work well.

    Also, these would likely work *really* well for people with short work histories and/or resumes. As for the rest of us? Not so much.

  4. I didn't look at all of these, but most of the first dozen or so require full-bleed printing, which is not practical with a desktop printer. If you want to tailor your résumé to each specific prospect, you're not going to have it commercially printed. Add to that the ATS comments above, and these are pretty but not practical.

  5. Amazing Design

  6. Believe it or not, a very beautiful and creative resume shows a HR manager that you had actually too much time to work on it - meaning that you have been actively searching for jobs for several months which is obviously not a good sign. Most HR managers will prefer a simple, well-laid out, concise and clear resume rather than a long, complex, aesthetically beautiful one. At http://www.brochuredesigner.org we can work with you to design a resume that can be simple, nicely laid out but still work for you.
