Creative Resumes

by - The Net's Premier Resume Writing and Editing Service

What fun to be in an industry where almost anything goes! In advertising and the arts, you have a license to be creative with your resume. After all, creativity is one of your strongest qualifications for the job. It is the need for this creativity that determines when resumes like the ones in this chapter are appropriate. Using a creative resume takes a very special type of person. They are not for accountants, bankers, and executives.

Needless to say, these resumes are not scanable, but the chances of a gallery, museum, graphic art firm, or ad agency scanning your resume are almost nonexistent. Scannability in creative industries is not an issue in almost all cases. When scannability is an issue, simply create an ASCII text file resume and send it along with your creative version (see the Scanable Resume Design Guide).

No matter how creative you want to be, you must still keep readability in mind. If your audience can't read your resume what good is it? 

Here I most gratefully acknowledge the work of Gregg Berryman. I have in my library a copy of his book, Designing Creative resumes (Menlo Park, CA: Crisp Publications, Inc., 1985). His book is a great resource for creative resume ideas and, although it is out of print at this writing, it can be found in many city libraries.
