Creative Resume Templates

A Creative Resume can make the difference between getting a job or and being ignored by recruiters. If you want a really creative resume that will stand out from others you should choose creative layouts and designs. A creative resume could send you to the top of the candidate pile if you choose one with eye-catching designs.

The most important thing when designing a creative resume is to choose a template or a design specific for your career niche. The design and the color of your resume are the first things an employer sees, so try to make a good first impression by using outstanding colors and shapes. If you apply for a position as a graphic designer, you can choose a resume design that conveys an artistic sense with strong colors, fonts or images. If you are applying for a position in the medical sector, you can choose a clean layout that reflects your professionalism in the health care field. Look at this page for a sample graphic designer resume.

Among creative paper resumes, another thing you can try is the online resume. You can create an online resume on a blog or website where you can describe your skills in a unique and creative way. This is an excellent way for applicants to display their images, work portfolios or references in one place. By doing this, you can attract more recruiters and you can easily send in emails.

Start your Resume with a short introduction where you can describe what the position you are applying for means for to you. The next section of your Resume needs to continue with a strong objective statement which can describe what expectations you have in your professional career. The objective statement can also describe what type of position you are looking for and what skills and qualifications you have for the job. In the next section, you can add a qualifications summary where you write four or five sentences about your main abilities. Your resume also needs to present details about previous positions in the field.

The best thing you can do here is to add as many details as you can so that the employer can have an overview look on your main achievements and accomplishments. Describe all your duties and achievements and mention the name of the position you held and the period of employment.
