The SharpFutures team and myself love this creative approach of presenting a CV. A Curriculum Vitae is traditionally a piece of paper with the mind numbing name, date, age, experience etc. If you are applying for a position in the creative digital sector then there is a high chance the Managing Director or whoever is handed your CV will have a creative flare themselves, therefore it wont hurt for you show your creativity from step one. We recently came across a blog post mentioning a great example of someone using creativity to give themselves the unique selling point and competitive edge.
Leah (the woman who created the creative CV), was given the brief to ‘create a piece of persuasive advertising with you as the product’. She then did exactly this in such a creative way it has taken the attention of people across the world, not only the business applied for. Since this creative CV she has had numerous interviews and job offers as a result of adding an interesting twist to the traditional Curriculum Vitae.
