Subject: How to give your CV a facelift.

At school I use to think I was creative, I did art, photography, and textiles... however, you ask me to design something in Photoshop or InDesign and I crumble. If I have to get graphic-sy (made up word) I usually beg a friend I know to help me... or take things back to basics and use good old powerpoint. Yep. Reallll professional over here.

I never thought about adding a funky template or graphic design element to my Cv/Resume. I thought it was all about to content and words, rather than the way it looks. Now, although this is still true... I am now realising how important first impressions really are and how judgy I've become when it comes to CVs/Resumes. I maybe read 5ish cv's a day and without realising it, my attention is always grabbed by the ones that stand out and are a little jazzy. Don't get me wrong if they've spelled education wrong and have no experience... it's still a no but they still made me look at their Cv/Resumes for a little longer. So props to them.

What I'm trying to say is... if you have the goods (experience) then don't let the way your Cv/Resume looks hold you back just because you are a bit shit at graphics.
