Do Beautiful Resumes Help You Get the Job?

Need a job? Jacob Share of JobMob posted a compilation of 36 beautiful resumes that stand out from the boring ol' black-and-white ones job seekers everywhere make by the millions.

This one to the left is the resume of graphic designer and illustrator Kenji Enos.

I'm curious if they work: do beautiful resumes help you get the job, or are employers wary of people that stand out? Link - Thanks Jacob!

It's worth a try at least... because the area I live in is "disadvantaged" (load of rubbish, but whatever), there aren't many part time jobs available for teenagers because a lot of teenagers drop out at sixteen and work full time. Also, there are a lot of adults working in places that require little experience. This makes it really hard for me to find a job, and believe me, I've tried pretty hard. I went to my local shopping centre and handed a CV into every shop and got no replies at all. I've been searching for a year and I've only got one interview. So maybe a change of tactics would be helpful.
