In most companies that aren't directly involved in creative fields (e.g. ad agencies, design firms, maybe video game developers), resumes have to make it past recruiters, hiring managers, and HR types before they ever reach someone who really understands what the job is about. I think the room for creativity in the resume, per se, is significantly constrained by that reality of the hiring process in most companies. That's why creative types have a portfolio that is separate from their resume. The portfolio is the place where creativity makes a difference.
