As I said earlier, the purpose of a summary – to attract the attention of the employer or staffing agency, to stand out among other candidates (who are often quite a lot). And indeed, some applicants are suitable to the process of writing Summary creatively. But where's the boundary, as not to frighten the employer, "peregnuv stick"? The unequivocal answer is not there, but I will say this: the originality is good when it is in moderation. Or in the right place. That is, when the company itself and the people working in it, are unusual, and just such employees and are looking for. What candidates can bring a resume "edakogo? Consider some of the most common cases. The unusual format of the file. In principle, we assume For example, for a designer or IT-specialist.
But in this case we must take into account (ask first) whether the recipient of a summary of its open? Also, the file should not be too "heavy". The unusual shape of the resume. In general, regard, the structure of summary style of presenting information, fonts, add to it fills, pictures, etc., better to stick to the standard. Though to artists such form may be admissible. But it does not matter caveat: for HR-manager or director of a company may not be so "advanced" as you are. Very original photo in the resume.
For example, a photo of the applicant to the pirate costume, possibly suitable for summary of a showman or animator. But in general, to do so I would not recommend it. Humor, resume in a playful manner. Somewhat risky idea. Of course, if it does not resume in the Comedy Club. 🙂 Some of the HR-managers collect this kind of "unusual" CVs of the candidates: If the case can have fun with colleagues. If you do not want to get into a "collection", take care. Look for comparing samples of resumes, which I enclose. If your resume will be drafted on such "templates", I think, in 99% of cases, you can not go wrong. By the way, once you have decided on something different, then it must be original. If you just copied from the Internet any quibbles, it's not original, and trite. If we assume a standard resume that employers send the majority of candidates, your cv just have to be original. The next resume templates, like hundreds of other like two drops of water, leaves you very little chance to get a job, especially in a good position in a major firm. Make sure to include a summary of all your achievements, key experiences and benefits, do not miss anything important. Without false modesty. Lion's share candidate does not do this or do . That's when you scroll and you will have a much better chance of finding a good job. Generally speaking, it is important to build on the company, as well as a summary fact recipient with all the necessary information to understand what is permissible and what is not. And depending on that already add a summary of certain elements of originality. The same applies to the cover letter. I wish you correctly write a resume and – find a good job!
