You have the power to make the rest of your resume stand out, says Robert Giesbrecht, who has worked in public relations and creative design for decades.
And the right title can help you do just that.
Giesbrot says a title with a specific purpose and a clear description of the work is the best way to convey your unique skills and talents.
For example, if you’re a creative designer who has designed a range of products, Giesbricht suggests you put a brief description of what you did and why.
It’s a good way to tell the reader what you’re looking for, says Giesbridt.
A title should also be informative and should have something to do with the specific task that you’re seeking.
A company with a strong brand can benefit from having a logo and a name attached to it.
GIESBRITT says that a company can do this because their logo is an iconic reference for its products.
For instance, a company might choose a symbol to represent their product.
“The company might have an eye on whether it will have the right logo,” Giesbrookt says.
If your company’s logo is associated with a particular company, such as the Ford Motor Company or a company that is heavily involved in the arts, it might be more likely to draw attention to your company.
“It’s a great way to be seen as a company,” Givesbrookt adds.
The wordmark is another way to put a unique emphasis on your work.
Givesbrot suggests putting a logo with your name or company name on a wordmark.
“You can have a logo that’s not too big, or a logo on the right side of the page,” he says.
“When people see that, they’ll know that it’s a company.”
Giesbeth says if you use a logo to describe your work, it can also help attract people to your resume.

The key to creating a resume with a unique title and an appropriate description of work is to write it down, says Brian Molloy, a partner at Pits & Co., a creative agency in Boston.
“A great title is an important thing, because if you don’t write it out, the next person you meet, or the next company you hire, will not know what your company is,” Molloys says.
GIVESBRETT says to create a unique name, you should write down the title of the company, what it does and what you do.
You should also consider using a logo.
A logo is a powerful way to communicate your brand, Givesbricht says.
The company’s name and logo can be a strong reminder of the brand and its purpose, Gitsbrecht says.
Also, if your name is associated specifically with a certain type of work, such the car or the company that makes that type of car, Gigsbrecht suggests that logo can help to emphasize that aspect of your business.
“If your name comes with the company name, then it’ll help to give it a sense of identity,” he adds.
GIGESBRITTS, Mollys and Giesberts suggest using a simple title for your work to stand out and also make it easy to remember.
“Write it down and think about it, so you can remember it later,” Gigsberts says.
You also should think about whether your work is relevant to a specific client.
Gigsbeth recommends you write out a list of clients or teams and write out the names of each client.
For every client, you can use that list as a reference point.
If you’re creating a portfolio or a portfolio of products that you can sell to other clients, for instance, that should be a very powerful way for your resume to stand apart.
Giggs also suggests creating a short biography that shows your work as it relates to the work of others, or showing the work you did with a client or team.
GIVESBRITTTS says that if you want to get creative, you may want to use a different logo to give your work a different feel.
For a short logo, put a lettering that looks like a circle around a circle, Gisbrets says, or you can design a logo as a circle.
“That’s kind of a quick way to make it look like it’s two logos,” Gisbets says.
A longer logo, such a dot or star, could be used to differentiate your company, Gigests says.
For other things you can do to stand your work out, you might want to include a link to your LinkedIn profile.
If that link is in the upper right-hand corner, you’ll find links to your profiles on LinkedIn.
“So, it gives you an indication of who you
