26 Atypical Resumes

From Gamer-Inspired Resumes to Interactive CVs

— March 29, 2014 — Art & Design
These creative resumes include interactive CVs, video applications and more. The job market today is more competitive than ever, so it's important for people to do their best to stand out.

One individual, Gareth Cash, was struggling to find work in the TV and film industry, so he decided to take matters into his own hands. Cash made a video CV (or cover letter I should say), through a compelling video that showcased all of his skills in the span of a few minutes. He got a job at SkyCreative in the end, and hasn't looked back since.

For millennials, interactive CVs and creative resumes are needed to ensure one's application doesn't just get thrown in the trash and forgotten about.
