Stand Out!

Hate to break it to you, but when you post a resume, 1000 people are posting the same resume for the same job. The likelihood of your resume being enthusiastically plucked from the sea of sameness on a prospective employer's' desk, is low at best. 

You've got to stand out. Here are a few things to consider.

  1. Be creative with how you represent yourself. Use infographics, pictures, images, logos and animation. See the resume below for an example.
  2. Stand out, but don't be overwhelming. Make your resume pop but don't make it so crazy  prospective employers feel overpowered by images and shiny objects. You want them to notice you, but you also want them to immediately know what you're trying to say about yourself. Be creative, not gaudy.
  3. Less is more. No one wants to read an 8 page resume. Keep it to 1-2 pages. Focus on the really cool things you've done that are applicable to the job description. The rest you can talk about in the interview.
  4. Remember the robot. Computer software (the robot) is picking through resumes before an actual human even looks at it; so you must understand how the robot works. The button below can help you with that.

Below is an example of a resume I did a while ago. It got lots of attention!
