As everyone knows a resume will make or break your opportunities, so the pressure is on when you sit down at your computer and open a blank document. You need to capture the reader, then hold them for at least 10 seconds to have a chance at an interview. It cannot be too long, nor too short and must explain your skills and attributes without being too arrogant, but neither too meek. Further if you’re in the creative industry it should reflect your flair and pazazz; so layout, colour and font procrastination is inevitable.
Surprisingly I made a fair bit of progress today after days of colour theme and font deliberation, (I find choosing fonts such a painful process.) What’s more I managed to fit it all nicely on one page. One page! So neat! Mind, then you think about it and it feels somewhat depressing that your life can be whittled down to a single piece of paper and that this paper is you.
However I am so glad that this process is done and with just a few final tweaks to be made, I should be ready to begin applications in a few days, allowing for folio creation. The joys of tomorrow.
ENTHUSIASM LEVEL: meh, I could be doing holiday activities.
Because we all want to know how to write a killer resume, there are so many articles on getting it right. Here’s a couple I referred too.
