about this template.

Are you bursting with ingenious ideas? If so, a career in the creative industry could be beckoning you. Being such a broad industry encompassing many different types of positions, it’s important to make sure that you understand what each role entails and tailor your CV accordingly. Roles can include graphic designers, content developers, UX researchers and designers and creative directors depending on the level of the position that you’re applying for.

Your CV needs to grab the attention of recruiters, so make sure that it’s infused with a hint of your natural creativity. This will vary depending on the role. For example, a bit of written flair might play well for a copywriting role, while some colourful graphics might appeal to recruiters in the design industry. Although it’s not compulsory, having a portfolio to demonstrate some of your previous work can really go a long way in getting you noticed.

Generally, the biggest appeal to candidates is the intellectual freedom that you’re offered - forget thinking outside the box, the box shouldn’t even exist. This can be challenging for some individuals and if that’s the case, this might not be for you. But, if you live for coming up with new innovative ideas then a career as a creative professional can be extremely rewarding and fulfilling.
