I came across this interesting article by Jhaneel Lockhart titled "7 Cool Resumes We Found On Pinterest", which is similar to the articles that I have previously posted under CV advice.
I must admit I had never heard of Pinterest, so I took a look. In essence its a fast growing online pinboard. Yes I know most of us are not IT wizards or design types, all I wanted to highlight is that with your CV there are simple rules to follow, but also that you can be creative to make your CV stand out and get noticed.
When I typed in Resume into the Pinterest search box you see some very interesting CV's.
So, why would you not use this to promote yourself? Sites like these and CV's presented like these are great ways to get noticed. It is a perfect platform, along with others such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and your own dedicated webpage to show off your CV/ experiences.
Tons of users have pinned web images of creative resumes for inspiration. Here is one by Michelle Magoffin that I thought was really good.
