Resume's Do Not Stand Out | Creativity Does

The following may not be an appropriate way to apply for your next mega corporate gig but being creative, different and fun should garner you way more attention then a plain “Jane” resume the employer has seen a million times before. This off the wall style should help your pursuit of standing out, getting an interview, and ultimately - landing a job with a cool creative shop or a sweet gig in the startup scene. ┬áThis is a recent application I sent over to Espresso - an amazing growing boutique creative agency here in Toronto (with an office in Boston). They pretty much state resumes alone are a waste of time, and they beg for someone who is interesting and funny in order to fit into their culture. ┬áSo here goes…. The result? Time will tell but it was the most fun I had applying for a job by far.
