I once tried a different approach to a résumé. I was applying at Sony in Foster City to be on the phones for their PlayStation Game Division. At the time I had a Space on Windows Live so I decided to do another Space (website) as a résumé for Sony.
I made my website all about Sony. I even did research on them and blogged about a few new things happening at their company. I had pictures of their offices and of course my information was craftily placed in an orderly manner around the website.
It was awesome! And I never heard a peep from them!
So I ran across some of these résumés that not only worked for others but are very clever and artsy to boot!
