    resume

    As I have said before, I am graduating in June. I am currently working on perfecting my resume. I know very little about resumes; however I have had some very substantial conversations about them.

    I would like to start a discussion here about the importance of a resume to a designer, the role they play in getting a job, the resume in conjunction with the portfolio, the layout of the resume, the content. Should they be conservative or avant-garde? Any good websites pertaining to resumes. How does a resume for a designer differ from resumes in other fields.

    Please respond with all thoughts relevant to resumes. If you have a nice resume and would like to share them please post them.

    Humm... The only time I've seen an influence concerning a potential client with my resume is one time at an interview the interviewer went thru some of the sites listed on it and wanted to know the thought processes I went through while designing each of them. It caught me off guard, and I got real nervous. Fortunately, I found out it was a porn site company so I walked out the door.

    List your past job positions from newest on top to oldest on bottom. I've been told that alot, I guess because alotta people dont do that. Since you're young, I've also been told, to put your educational creditations near the bottom because no design firm will care where you went to school. Be conservative, no more than enough to show yourself off but not so much its bragging.

    Make sure, at the top, you have your immenent goal you want to obtain. This is what mine says:

    "OBJECTIVE

    To be involved with a design firm, spanning the Palm Beach area, working towards setting new standards in aesthetics and presentation."

    eh.

    If you're a webdesigner make sure you list some of your best sites on there. maybe 4-5. But if your into print or something be sure to have a portfolio ready. However if you're sending your resume over a fax or something provide a link where some of your work can be found online.


    I think I have a good resume, but I'm not sure. I've been told it was good. Eh. http://www.no-tec.com/resume/resume.html

    I hope it helps a little. You're welcome to copy the layout I used if you'd like.
    maybe.

    It looks good. But put education under personal. or at least under employment.
    maybe.

    I would put more explanation under your employment listings, especially the ones relevant to the job you're applying for. Talk yourself up a little more, give more details. I'm a writer, so I guess I tend to look at the text more. Anyway, it won't look like so much resume fodder if you can show how your job experience relates to the job you're applying for. You don't have to be so terse.
