🎯 17 Creative Targeted Resumes That Got Quick Job Interviews

These job seekers made resumes that recruiters couldn't ignore.

17 Creative Targeted Resumes That Got Quick Job Interviews

Photo by rawpixel

Many people see job search as a numbers game: if you apply to enough companies, you'll eventually get hired.

The consequences of that strategy range from the boredom of a repetitious application process, to getting few responses from recruiters, to not feeling any progress in general and ultimately, taking the first offer that comes along, often from a company that you have no clue if you want to work at.

Instead, smart job seekers research a few potential employers and roles as early as possible in their job search, and then focus on them directly. It makes a lot more sense.

At the very least, they'll create a targeted resume, meaning a resume that's tailored for each employer and job opening.

You might think that would be enough, but some job seekers take it to another level and tailor their entire job search for the job they want. They put it in a lot more work up front, but when done well, the odds of getting more and better recruiter responses goes up a lot.

Here are 17 examples of job seekers who did just that.

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.

17 examples of creative resumes that recruiters loved

1) GQ Magazine

Sumukh Mehta resume

Sumukh Mehta resume page 2

What they did: To impress the Editor-in-Chief of the UK version of GQ magazine, Sumukh Mehta made a 20-page resume styled just like an actual edition of GQ. It took him more than 3 weeks to make.

Did it work? YES. It worked so well, he was offered a job immediately, without even being interviewed.


2) Wieden + Kennedy New York

What they did: Copywriter Chase Zreet loves Sprite and wanted to work on their ad campaign, run by Wieden + Kennedy New York. To get their attention, he sent in a cover letter like any other job seeker… except that his cover letter was a video of him rapping about Sprite and why he could write great ads for it.

Did it work? YES. The video has almost 1M views and Zreet started working at Wieden+Kennedy in April 2018.


3) SlideRocket

What they did: When Hanna Phan saw a job opening at SlideRocket (now part of ClearSlide), she used their own product to make a “presentation resume” video about why she would be a great fit. Her story went viral and inspired others.

Did it work? YES. She was hired as a Product Manager at SlideRocket in September 2011. Not only that, but 2 months later, SlideRocket announced “Présumés”, presentation templates that make it easy for job seekers to copy Hanna's idea. Reading between the lines, it sounds like the company loved her idea so much, they hired her to create the product for others.


4) Amazon

philippe dubost resume

What they did: To get a job at Amazon, Philippe Dubost put his resume online, making it look like he was a product being sold on Amazon.

Did it work? YES. Two months, 1.5M visitors, a lot of online coverage and 150 (that's 1-5-0) job offers later, he decided to join a startup called Birchbox. He then updated the resume to say that he's currently unavailable.


5) Google

eric gandhi resume

What they did: Eric Gandhi wanted a job as a designer for Google, so he designed his resume to look like a Google search results page and sent it in.

Did it work? YES. “Within 30 minutes of applying with this resume for a designer position on Google’s website, Eric got a call for an interview and was offered a marketing position in the end” which he rejected because it wasn't design-oriented enough. However, after also posting the resume on his website, it went viral, attracting interviews from employers and he quickly got hired.


6) Google (2)

What they did: Matthew Epstein wanted to work at Google so badly that he created a website called “Google, please hire me. Matthew Epstein.” with the above video resume.

Did it work? YES. While Google did interview him, they didn't hire him. However, his video went viral, getting over 450K views and attracting over 80 interview offers. It took him only 3 weeks to accept his dream job offer at a San Francisco-based startup.


7) Pinterest

jeanne pinterest resume

What they did: To get Pinterest's attention, Jeanne Hwang Lam put her tailored resume online in the form of the ‘JEANNE | for Pinterest!' pinboard.

Did it work? YES. Pinterest contacted her, and although they didn’t hire her, her pinboard resume did net her job offers from other companies.


8) Instagram

dearinstagram alice lee resume

What they did: Alice Lee wanted a job at Instagram so badly that she created, a website showing a combination cover letter/resume infographic explaining what she would bring to the company.

Did it work? YES. Instagram founder Kevin Systrom called Alice, and although they didn't hire her, the viral buzz she generated directly led to a job at another company.


9) Airbnb

nina4airbnb resume

What they did: After spending a year playing the numbers game mentioned above and applying for hundreds of openings and getting nowhere, Nina Mufleh changed her strategy. Her “goal was to focus on only one result: getting a job with a high impact team where I can do really cool work.” She aimed for Airbnb by building a website where she analyzed the global tourism market and suggested where Airbnb should focus next. And of course, the site was styled to look like a page on

Did it work? YES. Nina4Airbnb went viral, attracting dozens of job interviews including with Airbnb. Although she was disappointed by them, she quickly got hired at (one of the top freelance marketplaces online).


10) Quiksilver

Thomas Groc resume

What they did: Hoping to get a job at surfing company Quiksilver, Thomas Groc created his online resume by copying the look of the company's official website.

Did it work? YES, Quiksilver invited Thomas to a job interview.


11) Innocent

Onja Lola Delezinier resume

What they did: Onja Lola Delezinier applied for a marketing internship at French juice company Innocent by making her resume look like one of their bottle labels. She then dropped off the bottle and a paper CV at their offices.

Did it work: NO, at first. Although Innocent were impressed by what she did, they had no marketing job openings at the time.

However, Lola persisted…

lola resume

lola resume 2

What they did: a few months after her first attempt to get an internship at Innocent France, Onja Lola Delezinier tried again. This time, she parodied one of their juice cartons with her resume information.

Did it work? YES. This time, she did get an interview but she wasn't offered a job.


12) Ogilvy & Mather

Saaniya Abbas's Yogilvy animated resume

What they did: Aiming for a job at advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather, Saaniya Abbas created a website with an animated resume with lots of positive words around the name “Ogilvy”.

Did it work? YES and NO, according to her LinkedIn profile. Her animated resume was featured in many places online and it's around that time she changed jobs, so it seems that the buzz did help her get another job.


13) Darewin PR

What they did: Benoit Finck said that “when entertainment agency Darewin called for applications asking to be entertained, I put together a supercut of their main clients to introduce myself.”

Did it work? YES. The video went viral but more importantly, he “got to work with the agency on various freelance projects.”


14) Michel & Augustin

What they did: To apply for a job as an Event Coordinator at the famous French cookie company, Margaux Barre organized an event AT the company: the tasting of a massive cookie she baked for them.

Did it work? YES, she was interviewed after the event by their head of HR, although she ultimately didn't get hired.


15) Bortársaság

baji bernadett resume

What they did: To apply for a job at Bortársaság, a Hungarian wine distribution company, Bernadett Baji had a designer friend arrange her CV as a label for one of their wine bottles.

Did it work? YES, she was interviewed and hired by the company.


16) Sherry Design Studios

Hannah Hugues resume

What they did: To apply for a design internship at Sherry Design Studios, Hannah Hughes created a unique CV based on the company's slogan: “Creativity means nothing if it doesn’t hit the target.” A USB key in the shape of an arrow, it contains her resume as an animated presentation, including a personalized message for their recruiter Chris.

Did it work? YES. Their creative director contacted her right away and was very interested in having her as an intern, but she received a full-time job offer in parallel and she accepted that job instead.


17) Partners + Napier

Taira Perrault resume

What they did: Taira Perrault researched Partners + Napier and discovered that CEO Sharon Napier loves basketball, so she sent in her resume attached to a small basketball game.

Did it work? YES. Napier loved the idea and Taira was later hired as an associate art director.

What makes a good creative, targeted resume?

Some takeaways from these fantastic resumes:

1) Having the creative resume go viral was often a key condition to getting many job interview invites quickly

2) Getting the creative resume to go viral means doing something original and/or executing really well, and even then it's not guaranteed to happen

3) Even if the creative resume goes viral, it's not guaranteed to lead to job offers, but you will get a lot of attention and job interview invites

4) The creative resume can still work even if it doesn't go viral if highly and accurately targets a key hiring decision maker

5) The best creative resumes are ones that show off your expertise at the skills the potential employer cares about most

How can you create your own creative, targeted resume?

Nina Mufleh's Nina4Airbnb website has a downloadable whitepaper explaining in detail how she created and managed her campaign, and there are lots of good ideas there to inspire you.

😥 You’re Not Alone If You Think of Suicide On Your Job Search

You're not alone because many others think of it, and you're not alone because many others will help you avoid it.

You're Not Alone If You Think of Suicide On Your Job Search

Photo by Ben White

This is something I've meant to blog about for a while.

I wasn't sure it would come across properly, but if this helps even one job seeker considering suicide, it's worth it. I regret not having done it sooner.

Back in 2006, after my previous employer decided to outsource my entire team's work, I was living in Paris, France, and trying to find a job in Israel when I had the idea to start JobMob as a way to learn about blogging by blogging about that job search.

I did ultimately find a job in Israel and we moved from Paris in 2007, but I kept blogging because I discovered that I really enjoyed helping other job seekers like you.

There were also more selfish reasons.

Among them, I thought that by learning more about job search as I blogged, I could protect myself from ever feeling job search depression again like I had back in 2002.

Free bonus: Download The Job Search Depression Report which contains insights and resources on how to manage if you're too depressed to look for work.

Looking back at it now, my job search depression was relatively light compared to so many stories I've seen since then, but that rough period of life really surprised me and made me realize that your career is no joke and your life can literally depend on it.

I never considered suicide. However, the tough time brought back memories of two cute little boys I used to babysit as a teenager. They lived in a nice neighborhood, in a nice house, and their parents had nice cars who would go out often and to good restaurants around town.

All until their father was let go from his white collar job. This led to a noticeable change in the house, even in the eyes of a soon-to-be former babysitter.

Then one busy morning during rush hour, the father walked in front of a subway train.

I was reminded of this story again when a JobMob reader emailed me for advice, saying:

My situation stinks and I have contemplated suicide. I often find myself alone and depressed with no optimism for my future. I feel like a wounded soldier in battle who has been left to die in the trenches, after broken promises.

Absolutely heart-wrenching.

And not uncommon. Many job seekers reach this low point:

And many, many job seekers go all the way with it:

Unemployment over the period 2000 to 2011 was responsible for 45,000 [deaths], an analysis in the journal Lancet Psychiatry has found.

The authors say their findings suggest that suicide prevention strategies need to target those who lose their jobs even in countries unaffected by recession. They found the suicide risk among the unemployed was stronger where more people were in work and the situation of the jobless was therefore more unusual.

My response to the JobMob reader began this way:

Please don't commit suicide! It's a permanent solution to a short-term problem*, and I'm not glossing over it: I've been depressed myself and I know that it feels like “this is the way my life is now”. It's not. Seek help. At the very least, call a national suicide hotline asap

(* a line I've heard Philip DeFranco say)

If you're feeling this down or know someone who is, please, PLEASE, follow this advice.

Here's a list that should help.

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.

✅ 500+ Positive Action Verbs To Actually Use on Your Resume

These powerful positive action verbs make your resume achievements sound even more impressive.

500+ Positive Action Verbs To Actually Use on Your Resume

Photo by Joanna Kosinska

Good resumes highlight achievements that are relevant to the job you're applying for.

But there's a trap.

On the one hand, these are your achievements, so it could make sense to write “I grew…”, “I built…”, “I led…” and so on.

On the other hand, there's a good reason why first-person resumes are frowned upon: as the saying goes, there's no “I” in “team”, and all those “I's” make you sound self-centered with a big ego.

The solution?

Write your resume in the 3rd person, and begin each achievement mention or bullet point with a different positive action verb. Using action words this way implies the achievements are yours without you appearing conceited.

Here's a long this list of powerful action verb examples to get you started.

🔥 Why Every Job Seeker Needs to Get a Blockchain Job

How to get a job in the one of the hottest industries of 2018.

Why Every Job Seeker Needs to Get a Blockchain Job

Photo by Julie Macey

Have you noticed that you can't look at the job market headlines without the words “blockchain”, “bitcoin” or “crypto” coming up?

First, the good news.

There's a reason you can't avoid the buzz:

All things blockchain are EXPLODING right now.

The numbers are absolutely insane:

why blockchain jobs 1

And now, the bad news.

Oh wait, there isn't any.

Maybe you were expecting to hear that this boom is only for people in the IT world?

While it is true that the demand is strongest for hardware and software engineers who know something about blockchain, every industry is looking to disrupt itself with this new technology.

As a result, almost anyone who has an understanding of it can take advantage, regardless of profession.

Demand is so high – and still growing! – that blockchain employers are bending over backwards to hire anyone who can help them:

  • No previous experience? Doesn't matter.
  • Overqualified” in your field? Doesn't matter.
  • From another country? Doesn't matter.

You NEED to get into blockchain.

Here's how.

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.

What is a blockchain?

Gaurang Torvekar, CEO of blockchain-based LinkedIn competitor, explains:

A blockchain is a new kind of distributed ledger that is shared among a network of computers. To make changes to the information contained in the ledger, the users of the network must first agree that the changes are valid.

The process of requiring consensus to make updates ensures that no single person or entity has complete control over the contents within the ledger.

The end result is a shared record that thousands of people can access simultaneously and trust implicitly.

Bitcoin, the first digital currency most people have heard of, uses a blockchain to manage transactions like this:

Each step of the transaction in the image is strongly encrypted, which is why people refer to such digital currencies as cryptocurrencies or just crypto for anything related to them.

I'm not technical… are you sure blockchain jobs are for me too?

According to ITProPortal: “As these technologies have become widely recognised, more and more businesses are entering the marketplace offering innovative solutions to long-standing problems. The diversification that this is bringing the market has created enormous opportunity for workers looking to change jobs or even industry in 2018.”

And Forbes chimes in: “Many companies won't require in-depth knowledge of crypto technology right off the bat; they know it's a new industry, so they may be willing to train talent on the job. That said, going in with as much knowledge as you can will only increase your chances.”

In other words, demand is so high and across so many industries, now is a good time to change career paths if you've been thinking about it, and desperate companies may even train you on the fly to make the transition easier.

So how do I find a blockchain job?

why blockchain jobs 3

Shelly Gorman, blogging on, proposed a 5-point strategy that I've adapted here:

1) Research how blockchain will impact you

Read everything you can find on blockchain technology in your industry and profession.

How are companies beginning to use it?

Which companies, or kinds of companies, are most likely to start using it soon?

Which ways are experts projecting blockchain tech will lead to work changes?

2) Learn about blockchain itself in more depth

Shelly recommends finding an expert who can mentor you, someone with vision about the potential benefits of blockchain adoption in your industry. If you know someone like that, great, and if they're willing to mentor you, fantastic.

However, right now those people are few and far between (depending on your industry and location), and you might need time to network and build a relationship with them while they're being overwhelmed with requests from others like you.

Absolutely seek them out, but even if there's someone you can turn to immediately, start learning on your own in parallel and ASAP through blockchain classes and courses online.

Finally, learning is doing: start getting hands-on experience by volunteering your skills in joining a popular blockchain-related open source project. Also a great way to network, you may just meet someone who can mentor you.

3) Anticipate which related skills you'll need moving forward

When you're doing your above research, think about which of your skills are transferable to open blockchain jobs you've seen.

Which of your work achievements can translate too?

Which skills will you need to be more valuable your new career direction? Pick one and start learning.

4) Rebrand yourself with your blockchain knowledge

Once you feel more comfortable “speaking blockchain” and can demonstrate you have more knowledge and expertise than others who have held similar roles in the past – which shouldn't take much, if you act quickly – it's time to update your job search marketing documents to emphasize your newfound qualities.

Update your resume, update your social profiles (especially LinkedIn), update your personal website, add a blockchain mentor to your references, etc., even if you're not actively looking for a job so you can passively attract recruiters' job inquiries and offers.

5) Make your job interview answers and stories relevant

Prepare to communicate better when discussing your background and blockchain-related work.

Which of your achievements and work stories can be made to relate to blockchain companies more easily? Focus on those, and de-emphasize others.

Get ready to talk about your new knowledge and skills comfortably.
