A few examples of how to creatively and vividly make a resume. The main thing is to take a non-standard approach. Brian Mousse really wanted to get into the Pixar studio, so he created a resume in the form of layouts, sketches, diagrams, all that the studio lives every day. This summary was made by Scott Stedman after the first interview at a local store. When the manager saw his “creation”, he raised his eyebrows and said: “Well, this is curious.” Scott thought it was a failure. But that very night the bell rang in his house. People from the head office offered Scott to take over the entire design and advertising of the company.
Scott Nelson used scanimation technology in his resume when the image seemed to move when tilted from side to side. The octopus in his resume moved its tentacles and shimmered in different colors. True, creativity almost played a cruel joke with Scott. The manager, who hired him to work, later admitted that he initially accepted the resume as a typographical advertising brochure and was about to throw a piece of paper into the bin, but noticed the cover letter in time.
The creator of this resume, Sarah Odgers, says that bold resume forms are more suitable for designers and other creative professions. One day she tried out for the position of designer in a state institution and showed her, let’s say, angular summary. For the woman who conducted the interview, this turned out to be too creative, so Sarah could only have been ironic to watch the confused reaction of the woman. Sarah found the job, but in a more creative environment. When Kendra Vig found out about a job at a company creating lego games, she realized that a simple resume would not work here. To her letter exactly came to the right person, she gathered from the Lego mascot of the company? fish? and put the letter into her mouth. Kendra did not get the job, but HR responded with a delighted response with a lot of exclamation marks and said that he would definitely tell when new vacant seats appeared.
Hagan Blaut posted a summary on Facebook and Twitter, asked friends to send a link to those who might be interested in his experience, and went to bed. The following morning, his summary counted 500 views. By the end of the month there were already 100 thousand views. His story was told on popular sites Mashable, Yahoo Finance, Fast Company and others. But he himself was invited to several interviews, one of which gave him a job. Blaug says that not all responses were positive, but he immediately notices that negative is normal. If you have no opponents, then you are doing something wrong. Now, Blaut helps other people create unusual resumes. Here is one of Blaut’s work for the client. According to him, the main task of the resume is to make the employer believe that you have been doing your whole career in order to get into his company.
