LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
We are helping people brand themselves better. Part of the business will be to provide several resume template options that are completely unique--that help them tell their story in 15 seconds to get the person viewing the resume to want to learn more.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
No need to do any writing. In fact, I would rather you fill in the copy from the sample resume I uploaded. I am just looking for the design so do not get hung up on the actual copy. But I would prefer you used the copy or variations of the copy rather than filling it with nonsense text (i.e. sdfjkl dsfioudf asdfo dsf disp mkae). By using real/existing copy, it would allow me to better see how the resume will be viewed.
I want the resume to tell a story rather than be a laundry list. I want the design to flow like a story. Hell, even I don't know how to explain that, but that's what I am trying to accomplish. Below ae the details.
Traditional Resume--Three or Four templates
I need three or four entirely unique resume templates that can include the following information found in executive resumes:
1. Contact information: Name, address, email, phone, any websites or links
2. Simple Title: In my sample resume, it's "Public Affairs Strategist"
3. Work Experience (place for a description and accomplishments)
5. Other/Computer Skills/honors/awards, etc...
For the templates, I am looking for real diversity. None of them should look like the other. Feel free to have two be a little more edgy/creative, but still professional, though. Use color, fonts that can be found in Microsoft Word 2004.
Alternative Resumes--Two or three templates
A resume is often put in chronological order. People are comfortable with that style, but I would like two or three resumes that think about it differently. There's obviously a need to show the chronological order of where someone has worked somewhere. But the details (accomplishments, tasks) should be organized by the branding statements/keywords found in the executive summary of the resume (those six bullets at the top of the sample resume).
In other words, in the work experience, instead of being organized by where someone worked, they should be organized by personal branding attributes (for example, the categories could be: leadership, exceptional creativity, trusted, outstanding writer, strategic thinker, etc...) The author could then fill those areas in with their own content. Again, you can use the copy from the existing resume to fill the gaps.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
People who are looking for jobs, particularly jobs in politics.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
Unleash your creativity. I like different...but different that people can be comfortable with. I like edgy, but remember that resumes should make the message shine through, not overshadow the message. It should be easy to read. When someone looks at it, it should say in 15 seconds:
1. Wow, this is sharp.
2. This is what this person brings to the table
3. I want to know more about this person.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
I like sans serif/bold/narrow font in the headers. I am not married to a particular font for the body text. The personal branding attributes (six bullets in the sample resume) should be accentuated somehow. It doesn't have to be glaring, but the eye should move to them. Mind you that those branding attributes can be just one to three words also.
