In these tough economic times, many designers find themselves applying for jobs and freelance gigs on a regular basis. So, how can you stand out from the rest and grab the attention of a design agency when they’re usually bombarded with hundreds of applications? All you have to do is design  your own resume that will make you look more attractive and creative. It is a great way to present yourself in front of the employers and to get on their radar and in reach of the job.

A resume is a document that contains a summary of relevant job experience and education for specific employment search. The resume is typically the first item that a potential employer encounters regarding the job seeker and is typically used to screen applicants, often followed by an interview, when seeking employment.

In this article, we’ll take a look at 40 creative resumes that can inspire you and make your next resume surface in the stack of other job seekers.

I beg to differ, I think that a creative resume shows the potential and inner workings of the person behind it. It offers lots of little details about the person that could otherwise be lost on a regular A4 template-styling.

Most of these are pretty hard to read. These are terrible examples of an “Creative” Resume. It mostly depends on flourishes, artwork, and awful kerning and letter spacing. If you want to get a job in the creative field, don’t over design your resume. It makes you look like an amateur.
