They sit down at their laptop and think: Why restrain myself to words and bullet-points? Why not make my resume look like an e-commerce page, or an Instagram account?

Business Insider recently featured some of those unique resumes. Here are some of the best, starting with Philippe Dubost’s Amazon-inspired C.V.:

But more traditional firms will probably demand a more traditional resume.
