Are you proud of your resume? Not for what's contained in it—that part is super important, don't get us wrong—but for how it's visually presented and designed? Following the success of our business cards for architects post, we want our readers to share their innovative, eye-catching, well-formulated resumes (also called CVs, depending on where you live/work). 

If you think your resume has what it takes to be featured in a top-10 list, then send it over! 

Rules & Guidelines:

  • Only send your resume/CV if you are comfortable with it being shared online. We encourage you to modify the information to make it more generic (i.e. change the name to John or Jane Doe).
  • We are not looking for resumes/CVs with impressive content. Did you go to medical school, then become an architect and then go to law school? All while juggling internships at Norman Foster, Frank Gehry and Rem Koolhaas' offices? That's awesome, but it's not what we're looking for.
  • Design must be submitted as a .jpg/.png/.pdf/.gif
  • Design must be original and suitable for publication on ArchDaily.
  • All entries must be received by May 11, 12:00pm EST.
  • You may submit more than one entry.
  • We will publish a selection of our favorite submissions.

How to share a link to your submission:
In the form below, please submit a link to the .jpg/.png/.pdf version of your resume. We will not accept submissions as zip files, nor do we accept submissions sent via WeTransfer, MegaUpload, or a similar service. Any entry submitted as a zip file or using a file transfer service will not be considered. If you are sharing a file that has been uploaded to Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Imgur or Google Drive, please ensure that you are sharing a public link that can be accessed by ArchDaily editors.

Ruturaj Puranik · September 26, 2016 12:08 PM

I have the same doubt... waiting since months!

Scott Moore · May 04, 2016

Hmmm... trying to decided is I want to give myself all 10/10's or should I just load the boat with all 5/5's.... decisions...decisions.. I feel like Frank Ghery in a Scrap Metal Yard.

so that hoards of lazy designers can grab your refined resume and use it as a template for their lame work? nope.

Conor Austin Jesse Sass · May 03, 2016

So that pictured resume is beautiful and eye catching, but if some employers would humor me here, is such a resume useful when it hardly tells you anything except for the bare minimum? It says nothing about this persons role at previous jobs for example, and the special achievements only appear to show enough room for award titles, not descriptions of things they actually achieved or did in school or work. You could argue that you can hear about all of this in an interview or portfolio, but when your looking at multiple candidates, wouldn't you want to see more than this up front?

Perhaps in their example there is an unseen second page with more detailed information and what we're seeing is the front page that catches the eye and gives a highlight overview while the second page fleshes it out after hooking the reader.

I realize I'm departing from the spirit of the article, but I'm curious

I think that rating your competences in fractions/stars/etc is a loss of time.. who are you comparing with? what may be your 10/10 is my 5/10.. totally nonsense.
HR are more interested in your objectives and what you have done, also because most of the time they don't know a thing about softwares.

Neil · May 03, 2016 08:19 PM

The second line of the article says they just want to see the best visually designed resumes.
yes they may all be shit but an article about people with solid work experience is not what this is about.

totaly agree
