Creative Resume Template Do’s And Don’ts

Do

  • Use creative templates if the industry or job requires creative thinking,  such as marketing, graphic design, fashion design and art occupations. Most job seekers still rely on standard resume designs; a colorful layout helps you separate yourself from them.
  • Include links to your portfolio or professional social media profile in your resume. Most creative jobs will require you to submit examples of your work so the employer can see your style and potential.
  • Customize your resume for different job opportunities. By simply including keywords found in the job posting that apply to you, like a specific skill or an attribute, you’ll more appropriately target your resume for the job. In comparison to standard templates, creative layouts give you more flexibility in featuring your best attributes, whether it’s your top experiences or your full array of skills.
  • Feature noteworthy projects and activities instead of daily tasks when discussing your previous work experiences. We also highly recommend including quantifiable achievements and important details, as they better present your accomplishments. So instead of writing “Designed for clients,” go with: “Designed over five original concepts for X&P’s spring campaign.”

Don’t

  • Use creative templates in more conventional industries, like business and operations, human resources, health care and accounting. Some jobs are more buttoned-down and conservative, and might prefer professional resume templates or modern resume templates.
  • Include a headshot or a photo on your resume, unless the job description requires it (such as for an acting gig). It steers away from what actually matters — your skills and work experience — and some hiring managers may consider it dated or unprofessional.
  • Go crazy with colors or use fonts that might be difficult to decipher. It’s better to stick to fonts like Times New Roman, Arial or Helvetica for better readability. They also make it easier to make it past applicant tracking systems (ATS), which more employers now use to scan resumes and filter applicants.
  • Include experiences, skills or information that aren’t relevant to the job you’re applying for. As we noted under “Do’s,” it’s best to tailor your resume to the job at hand and only include information that will be valuable to the employer.
