Before you snag the job, your résumé needs to work on your behalf to capture the attention of your potential employer.
Creative Market has penned down several tips to help designers create outstanding and unique résumés to catch the reader’s attention.
Color not only helps to lead the reader’s eye, but can also be used to emphasize important information and stimulate an emotional response.
Use color blocking on your résumé to organize information and reflect your personality.
We’ve seen more designers come up with innovative ways to present their skills and achievements, which includes the use of infographics.
Take for example freelance graphic designer Rocío Treviño’s quirky, illustrated résumé, and product design student Prigent Tanguy’s fun and striking LEGO-themed piece.
Visuals make it easier and more enjoyable for the reader to digest information.
A cluttered résumé catches no eye—prioritize information and use what space you have wisely.
Smile in your attached photo
While this is a debatable point—some people disagree with including a photo in one’s résumé—a warm and friendly face can help win over your potential employer.
