Gaudy CVs are usually unreadable, and unless you have a great eye for design, you’re unlikely to impress recruiters by bucking the trend. However, there are exceptions.
Zef Narkiewicz has created an incredible CV that mimics pages from Ceefax, right down to the lift muzak and pixel graphics (I especially love the web cam). All that’s missing is Bamber Boozler.
London switched off its analogue TV broadcasts this week, and this CV is a timely tribute to a mode of technology children of the 1970s and 1980s grew up with and remember fondly. Zef, we can’t offer you any web design work, but I wish we could. Good luck with the job hunt.
