The talent crunch is real, and not just in Silicon Valley. According to human resources consultancy Manpower Group, roughly 38 percent of employers across 42 countries face difficulties in filling jobs – up two percent from last year.

And it’s not because supply is low. A study done by Glassdoor found that, on average, each corporate job opening attracts 250 resumes. Of these, roughly two percent will be called up for an interview, before one makes it through the hallowed doors of the hiring company.

Those are not great odds.

We hate to be the harbinger of bad news, but there’s more. Your resume – also your golden ticket to gainful employment – spends just six seconds under the scrutiny of the hiring manager.

  • Showcase the features of their products and services to potential customers
  • Communicate how they will solve business solutions to stakeholders

The very first step in your job hunt is to create that eye-catching resume, so we’ve put together an interactive inspiration site that has 72 well-designed resumes from all around the web for you to feast your eyes on. Click on the below teaser to access it!

Simply put, your resume must be visually appealing enough to catch the eye of the recruiter, or risk being thrown into the junk pile after those six seconds. To be sure, its design doesn’t have to award-winning, but black and white in a Microsoft Word document just won’t cut it.
