Resume by LordGabsta
NOTE: A well-crafted resume is a great way to stand out as a candidate, and it’s not the easiest task to balance form and function with the opportunity to show off your design ability. Have a look at what other designers are doing BUT remember: a resume’s most important function is give a potential employer a good idea of your experience as quickly as possible. Most of samples above are over-artistic and some are hard to read. CVs should be functional and clearly present the content.
Designers often mistaken the resume with portfolio. Most of CVs here are really hard to read and it it is also hard to find the important information for the HR. There is a really small barrier between being hired or threw away to thrash. Concentrate more to information and usability instead of design. Designer can prove design skills at portfolio as a attachment.
