    While reading the news today, I stumbled on http://www.businessinsider.com/insa...1-6#joe-kelso-says-his-resume-never-failed-1". After a quick look, I was left wondering, would YOU use any of these forms of resumes in hopes of landing you your next job ? Seriously... DISCUSS...(copyright by Pengy... imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, my fine flippered friend)

    Rhody... :confused:

    If my job required a) people skills, b) creativity, and c) graphic/artistic skills, then absolutely I would. But if you used this style for an engineering job application, for instance, then your resume would probably get a laugh, then get chunked.

    DONT STEAL MY DISCUSS!!!

    Anyhow, for creative positions, yah I guess this is pretty cute.

    For actual jobs, that's stupid.

    I like the last one that is demoed - I think something like that could work for an engineering company.

    While those are cool, if you look at them almost every person is applying for a job in graphic design.

    Pengy,

    See my edit to original post, above, I thought about giving you credit when I posted it, but said, heck, let's see if pengy coughs up a squid over it, and you did not fail to disappoint me, hehe... I hope this edit meets with your approval.

    Rhody... :redface: :biggrin: :devil:

    What's wrong with a LaTeXed CV?
