Getting noticed can be hard for job seekers, especially when it comes to differentiating yourself from the competition when you’re all competing with the same tools. A candidate with the right references, resume, or even a lucky tie can potentially be lost amid hundreds of similarly qualified candidates.
How then to go about getting noticed?
Setting yourself apart from the crowd is easy, it just has to be done with tact and just a pinch of cheekiness, the most important thing being to have some point to your deviation from the norm. The notoriously strict conventions of the resume produce a homogeneous applicant pool on paper, flat like the medium. One of the easiest ways to attract attention is with an unorthodox resume. Just check out this creative resume in which the job seeker made himself an Amazon product page to showcase his work skills. It’s funny, clever, and still has the basic information for employers.
