Yes–maybe you’re T-minus and under 100 days and counting when it comes to graduation, be it undergrad or grad school. If that’s so, congratulations! However, you know what that means: it’s time to put the polish on that resume!
But wait, wait! What if you want something a little cool, new, epic and different to get your resume on the top of that stack? Well, we’ve been a bit obsessed with this idea ourselves of late, so here are some humble suggestions:
1. Graphic Design that resume, anyone? Check out this article in Fast Company, about a new company, Loft Resumes, that will make your resume look like a million bucks – but for the base cost of…not a million bucks…but $99. Love!
2. Chart it. Again, props to FC for this article on ditching the resume to go graphic – chart it out instead. Infographics are all the rage, anyway, so why not stick out that way, particularly if you’re in a creative industry?
3. Ditch it and go digital? This one might be tough, since it can’t really go in a stack – but if you want to avoid the stack altogether, or bring something cool and different to your interview after you’ve cut through the clutter with a stellar resume, why not consider an app?
4. A ton of visual ideas for DIY. Why not create your own? Need ideas? Head over to pinterest and just search “resume.” Bam, tons of cool ideas there!
The world famous movie What a Girl Wants said it best: “Stop trying to fit in when you were born to stand out.” So STAND OUT! Here’s your official invitation!
