Creative Resumes - Making a difference with your cv while applying to a job

As I wrote on my Hub about resumes and presentation letters (which you should definitely check for great tips on presentation letters and CV's) there are standard resumes for everyone to just fill in.

But, there're some jobs that required a little bit more... You really have to stand out, to leave your mark on the person who's going to see it!

In this Hub I'll leave you a few tips on creative resumes and also provide you with some programs and books that will help you write the resume that will get you a great job!
