What do you think of a fancy/stylised CV/Resume?

Teodor asks: How you are going to react if you see a CV which does not follow commonly accepted standards? What if the CV is edited in photoshop and has different structure? What do you think will be the reaction of such approach in different industries?

In answer:
It depends on what position you are apply for, i.e. if knowing photoshop and related programs is a highly required skill (one of the top three competencies), then it could be a good idea to prove your skills.

However, in the majority of cases, most recruiters and HR professionals will conclude before rejecting the application that they are more concerned with showing their ability with photoshop and hoping that we don’t notice their lack of experience.

KISS is the best attitude in CV/Resume writing.

Good Luck!
