At last check, the number of people unemployed in the U.S. is teetering around the 15 million mark. While many will whine nobody is hiring and others will claim job demand simply outweighs the supply, one thing is clear: it takes an outstanding resume to set yourself apart from the pack.

The following collection represents a small sample of job seekers that have gone above and beyond the typical resume to make themselves stand out. While the majority of applicants listed applied for positions in either graphic design or new media, the resumes by themselves stand as fantastic pieces of art. These resumes/CVs were found on the popular art community site DeviantArt. If you're a designer currently looking for a job, hopefully this article provided some pointers.
