2. Keep an open mind.

Finding a job is no easy feat, especially if you have your heart set on a specific company or job title. Stay optimistic and keep at it, you’ll be surprised what surprising career opportunities you will find.

3. You could try marketing yourself as a real product.

Online résumés have become increasingly popular, especially for tech-related jobs. Find a format that will grab your future employer’s attention, like web product manager Philippe Dubost’s personal spin on an Amazon product page.

4. Or turn your résumé into an eye-grabbing infographic.

Services like Vizualize.Me let you input your information with ease and do the designing for you.

5. Set your application to song.

Just don’t do it as a parody of “Call me, Maybe” - a few other people have thought of that one already.

6. Appeal to the employer’s sweet tooth.

Whether it’s a résumé candy bar, résumé cake or a résumé cookie - a fun, edible CV will help you stand out from the crowd. After all, who doesn’t like cookies?

7. Or get their attention by utilizing their own product.
