Picture this: you’ve just graduated from college with a bunch of A’s and a stellar, achievement-laden record as president of the debate club. You’ve done an internship every summer during your time in college, and your former supervisors have waxed lyrical about your boundless enthusiasm and strong work ethic. But you’re perplexed. It’s been 3 weeks, and there’s no response from the dozen or so companies that you’ve e-mailed to. What could be wrong?

Your résumé, perhaps.

Your skills, qualifications and work experiences are essential in landing you a job, but your résumé will determine whether you get an interview in the first place. Recruiters spend an average of only six seconds to scan through a resume, and if yours is dull, staid and uninspiring, it could very well find itself in the trash, together with your chances of landing that job of your dreams. A beautiful, well-formatted résumé, on the other hand, will stand out from the tedium that regularly floods the desks and inboxes of recruiters, and maximize your chances of getting a favourable response. And it also speaks volumes about your creativity and professionalism, which will do no harm to your chances of getting hired.

Not sure how to spruce up your résumé? Take inspiration from these 15 stunning examples, that manage to be extremely easy on the eye, without sacrificing the essentials. You might not possess the mad design skills required to craft some of these masterpieces, but you could pick up some valuable tips to create your own impressive résumé. And who knows? You could find yourself employed sooner than you think.
