I made my resumé looked like a salad recipe book. And from the cover page you will immediately find out what kind of person I am and what principles and values I hold in life. For those who don't know me yet, I am a senior communication student graduating few months from now, and just because I do not major in visual design doesn't mean I cannot execute something like this.
So... why a salad recipe book?
I personally love salads, green and fruit ones. And I believe I am a salad. It has several vibrant colors that exactly represents who I am, for I am an energetic person who can contribute abundant and fresh ideas for a given project, and that's just what a copywriter should have. In addition, I promote health and fitness to everyone (A passion I'll always live by).
"Inside are the fresh ingredients I have that will give you a reason why you should hire me as a copywriter", I confidently said. I know one of the panelists was impressed when he said, "You are now hired!"
Below is the first page of my recipe book. I extended my concept inside by placing variety of salads in each page. This is also where I placed the summary of the contents. And since this book is less than 10 pages, I changed the paging with the image of salads instead of the usual numbers.
"I want people to know me as the young fit copywriter. Young means new and fresh; and Fit is synonymous to capable and competent. And a copywriter like me have them all!"
The next two pages are basically my objective, summary of qualification, and work experience.
The last page is where I placed my interests in an article type (I also dream of being featured in a magazine someday, you know! ).
et voilà! A creative resumé! I hope you liked it too :))) And to those who are searching for a creative resumé, I hope this inspires you :)))
