Finally got around to uploading something! Been busy working for the man. This is my CV which I did at the beginning of the year which probably laid me the job and was great at attracting attention among several hundred applicants. Don't do MS Word resumes. Apparently they get thrown in the bin without being looked at.

The spec bar is something I decided the play around with. I quite like it, but not too sure if it goes with a project like this.

I love this. And I think what makes it a blast is you did a cover letter to snatch their attention. I've read/heard that Cover letters are becoming a trend of the past but you've put it to perfect use here using it to get their attention to look at your CV. Old or not it serves as a perfect example for designers everywhere that some things shouldn't be forgotten/trashed but reinvented to best serve you.

Currently in the process of re-designing my own resume. I've been looking at a few examples online to draw inspiration from, and this is by far one of my favourites. It's interesting that you've used a 'warning label' motif here for the cover letter. It's immediately attention grabbing and the fine details visible on the cover have a sense of humour to them.

Thanks :) When I was recruited, apparently they lined up all the CV's on the table and mine was one of the few that stood out the most. So anything to get attention is helpful.

Just be mindful your design that is can also send out the wrong message to your target audience. So while recruiters who are creatives might love a CV that has gone all out, it might not go down so well if you are applying for management or technical jobs.

MY tutor showed this (and a few other CVs) in my class the other day! Got to this one's my favourite :D

Thanks :) Though this one is pretty old which I did straight out of college. My current one isn't as funky. Probably to reflect my so-called maturity!!

nicely done!
Jonny-Rocket Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2010
Yeah, this is just the cover letter. All the important details were inside :)
Nero-53 Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2010
I like! Doesn't seem to have many details on though. Is this just the cover?

pure-guava Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2009
nice change mate. Have you received any comments? job?
Jonny-Rocket Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2009
Yeah, I'm currently working now. Apparently my position had a quite a few applicants since everyone graduated at the same time and then went job hunting. So anything to stand out was helpful.

Only issue was sometimes it was too big to fit into peoples email inbox which meant I had to send a lower res one.
