Your CV is the story of you and why you should be hired. You do not need to be restricted to a typical word document anymore to create your CV. We’ll look at alternative CVs and some tools which could help you create one:
- infographic CVs
- online CVs
- video CVs
When to use a creative CV
Any CV should be tailored to the job or the type of job you’re going for. A creative or alternative CV should only be used if it fits the company you’re applying to.
For example, your infographic CV might go down well with a graphic design or advertising agency. This would not be acceptable if you were applying for the police.
In any case, it’s probably a good idea to supply your plain written CV along with any alternative just in case. The person looking at it may prefer that option or may not be able to access your creative version.
