Our company motto says it all: Change Lives Through Creativity…so, why not add a bit of creativity and flair to your resume!
These days, it can be difficult to stand out in a competitive market. So, employers are looking for candidates who can bring something extra to the table, something that sets them apart from the rest. This is where creativity comes in.
Here are some tips on how to add creativity to your resume and application:
1. Use a creative format
Instead of the traditional chronological resume format, consider using a more creative layout that uniquely showcases your skills and experience. This could include using infographics, charts, or even a video resume. Just make sure that the format is easy to read and that if you are sending a PDF file, make sure the texts are not flattened.
2. Add a personal touch
Rather than just listing your qualifications, try to inject some personality into your resume by adding a personal touch. This could include a brief bio that highlights your interests and passions, or even a quote that inspires you. This will give potential employers a better sense of who you are as a person beyond your work experience.
3. Showcase your creativity
If you have a portfolio of creative work, such as graphic design or writing samples, make sure to include them in your application. This will not only demonstrate your creative skills and show that you have a passion for your work and are dedicated to producing high-quality results.
4. Highlight your achievements
Instead of just listing your job duties, highlight your accomplishments and the impact you’ve had in your previous roles. Use specific examples to demonstrate how you’ve contributed to the success of your team or organization and how you’ve used your creative skills to solve problems or drive innovation.
5. Customize your application
When applying for a specific role, tailor your application to the job description and the company’s values. This could include incorporating particular keywords into your resume or cover letter, or highlighting how your skills and experience align with the company’s mission and goals.
We love to see elements of creativity in resumes, portfolios and in the interview process, it is what makes our job so unique and fun.
