CVs for Creative Careers
A creative CV is designed to showcase your creative skills, and is often used to demonstrate skills for a role which includes elements of design, art, technology, animation, VX/FX or production.
It can be used to grab an employer’s attention in sectors where speculative approaches for jobs and work experience are common, e.g. creative industries. Remember it's the role and not the sector that matters when you are plotting your creative approach. For example, if you are applying to be an Account Manager at a top advertising agency they wouldn't usually expect to see a super quirky video CV but they might for a design role in the same agency's creative team. The more 'creative' your CV becomes the more of a high risk strategy it can be so make sure it reflects the style of the organisation you are applying to and genuinely represents your character. The more people you show it to in the relevant industry for creative and sector specific feedback the better.
