    These are great, as there are large numbers of people competing for vacancies this could help give you the edge over the rest. They should grab the attention of the employers and get your resume seen. Excellent idea, thanks

    • Grant Newton says:

      What’s really cool about these isn’t just about grabbing the attention. What I really like is that these resumes show the personality of who they are hiring. I can’t make this kinda shit so orangeresume.com is making mine for me…i’ll let you know how it goes.

  2. Haley says:

    Great list of creative example.I think we should learn this. They should grab the attention of the employers and it is easy for you to become an candadite at their office soon.

  3. Adam W. Prillis says:

    Loving these resumes, creative, very creative.

  4. Steve Y says:

    I love these resumes! I just wish that I could be as creative as some of these people are. But I love my job anyways.. :)

  5. Loved all the different creative resumes. However, I didn’t see any examples for Engineers. Here is a link to my first try at a creative engineering resume.

  6. Abhijeet says:

    This blog is really remarkable. Thanks for sharing this great stuff. Keep sharing more useful and conspicuous stuff like this. Thank you so much.

  7. Brianna says:

    59 is extremely creative, and I am inspired to make one like this. It gives me a good understanding of the character…But the picture is a little too pompous. I really like them all.

  8. Jade Sitjar says:

    Wow. I’m seriously considering redesigning my resumes. Thank you really for the this idea! Nobody here in my place has done it. And i think i should be the one to start it.

  9. hank says:

    Yep most of these are really interesting and creatively done resumes but, in my opinion, they will only work if you’re looking for a job at an advertising or design company (the T-Shirt resume probably won’t net you a job anywhere…legal).

    If you’re in the IT however (or Engineering), and you’re thinking of sending this kind of resume you’d better think twice. Especially if the company is known for being rigorous and strict (I wouldn’t send this type of resume to Huawei or some German based company).

    On the other hand if the position for which you’re applying requires creativity I think that sending this kind of resume will greatly improve your chances (if it’s nicely done off course).

  10. Someguy says:

    I disagree with the guy above me, I would defintely apply for any kinda of job with any kind of resume you showed us. I think I might replicate #90 for for the teaching job I’m after.

  11. CrazyGadgets says:

    Your work and your time invested in these posts is important for us, your readers.
    “T-Shirt Resume” was very funny.

    Is this how graphic designers have to apply for jobs now? Wow! Glad I am in boring operations management. Kudos to those who can put these together!

  15. Very nice resumes, but i don’t think it is clever to use these for all jobs!?

  16. megha says:

  17. Sansar Singh says:

    great formats

  18. Luke says:

    I was a annoyed by the title “100 Most Creative Example Resumes”

    I almost didn’t enter the site because of it – wild claims remind me of spam.

    I did find the examples useful.

  19. Dheeraj says:

    Really awesome resumes format I ever seen But I am looking for attractive resume samples for freshers.

  20. Tan Colonel says:

    Here is another one. Not just a resume… a whole application stategy with follow up and “guerilla” follow up: http://www.petunjasjourney.wordpress.com
    A plant in a withering condition builds the base of the application. I like the sprout growing part the most :o)

  21. sman says:

    nice collection. thanks

  22. Anony says:

    There are a lot of really bad ones in here… Some are great, but others are plain garbage. Being “original” doesn’t necessarily make it good, as 99 proves for example. Readability is the most important aspect in a resume yet I didn’t even want to start reading 99.

  23. huhucafe says:

    • stoirin says:

      I have been in the position of hiring writers for ad agencies and also form internal creative/marketing departments for major international agencies. First of all, most people still have to apply online — and I many of these resumes could not be scanned by the hr dept software — which means you can’t even get in the door, because hr has to see them first, and then gives ME the ones they have pulled out as matching and appropriate. Secondly, if it came to me directly, I would find it REALLY irritating to have to “follow the yellow brick road” or go blind trying to follow something like #46 or #48. I would, quite frankly, throw them in the trash. Some of these are clean and attractive and colorful and eye catching. But my job – -and the job of my department — is to communicate information as quickly and clearly as possible to my target audience. The majority of these make it far more DIFFICULT for me to understand what the person’s experience and skills are — in other words, it’s a bunch of narcissistic masturbation, really. If it’s not clear and attractive and easy to understand at a glance — you’ve removed yourself from the competition. Maybe if you’re looking for a job as a fine artist…but ones like #80, #96 are just embarrassing (look like someone who’s 12 designed them — and a PHOTO?! never!) ; 80, 90 (REALLY?!) and #64, #67 — eeesh! And does #74 really think that a busy person has any interest in trying to decipher whatever this is? Into the trash it goes! I would FAR prefer a plain resume that is easy to read and easy to understand at a glance to most of these annoyingly overdesigned misguided attempt at…whatever. Far too many of these actually serve only to prove to me how terrible their sense of design (and how great their lack of taste and understanding of commercial communications) is. Presumably, that isn’t the goal?

  29. Cole says:

    They say if you can’t take criticism then you’re in the wrong field when it comes to design. I speak from experience when I say that there are many GOOD examples in here. However, there are a ton of examples that I’d steer far far away from.

    I won’t single any particular one out but here are some things to think about. The goal of visual communication is to what..? “illustrate a message”! Here are some things that get in the way of that. 1. Wordy or hard to read text. 2. over the top complex graphics. I say this one especially because you want potential employers to what?…”read about you”, and complex graphics all over the place is too much to keep someone’s attention.

    One other thing, I notice everyone is sticking to the typical letter size format. I’ll just say this, it’s okay to break the rules.. By the way, the best “looking” resume in here is a tie between #82 and #63. Clean and inviting conceptually, flows easy and easy to read.

  30. zacsky says:

    Nice Collections. I will be featuring this site on one of my post.

  31. vidya says:

    AWESOME IDEAS.I’M SURE MY RESUME WOULD ALSO TAKE A PLACE HERE.AFTER I HAVE DONE IT

    • stoirin says:

      Mostly TERRIBLE ideas, with a couple of interesting ones thrown in. I’ve been in marketing and advertising for 20 years. Most of these, if they came across my desk, would go straight into the garbage can. They’re the kind of thing that SCREAMS “I’m in art school and I have NO understanding of the fact that commercial art and fine art are two different things…hire me, and you’ll be saying hello to temperament, ego and trouble from someone who doesn’t understand what we’re here to do…”
