Creative resumes have become a popular trend among job seekers. No wonder — they have the power to stand out from the sea of traditional black-and-white resumes. If you're thinking about using one too, we've put together this selection of more than 40 creative resume templates made by successful professionals.
These creative resume templates range from quite minimalistic resumes you could use in a wider variety of professions, to some of the most extravagant pieces, suitable for artists or designers.
Some of these examples are also available as resume templates that you can use (many of them even for free).
However, others are closely tied to the designer's own personality and it probably wouldn't be possible to copy them even if you wanted to. Still, you can use them as inspiration.
Either way, if you decide to go for a creative resume template, remember that it reflects not only your own personality but also the character of your desired work environment.
In other words — you wouldn't want to apply for an accountant job with any of these resumes. However, they may as well get you that dream job in a creative agency!
