According to Career Choice, there have been some unusual resumes sent out in order to stand out. One day a receptionist at a large company received an envelope that was doused in perfume. While the scent might have been pleasant in small doses, this was just a little too much. She still dropped the envelope in the mailbox of the human resource department, to whom it was addressed.
In a little bit, the human resources director came to check her box. She pulled the mail out and caught the scent of the perfumed envelope. She frowned and wrinkled her nose. The offending envelope was easy to find. She just had to follow her nose.
She opened it, saw that it was a resume, and threw the whole envelope away without even reading it. This unique over-perfumed envelope was annoying and did not make a good first impression.
The lesson learned is that if you want to make your resume stand out in an annoying way, employers won't even read it. Make sure that whatever steps you take to make it pop are appropriate and professional.
That is unless you are applying to a cosmetics company.
