Resumes 101

Are paper and ink resumes a thing of the past? Creative professionals like yourself are often troubled with finding the right resume format for the type of work that you do. The style of resume you choose can depend on a number of factors. You should consider the type of position you are applying for, your qualifications, and the firm's culture. Tailor your content and the delivery of your resume (web-based, print, electronic), to where you are applying.

When formatting your resume, put yourself in the reader's shoes. In other words, what would interest you and what is the most relevant to the position you're applying for? Keep in mind that employers are often sifting through several resumes at once, so it's important to catch their interest before they move on. Try not to get stuck on following a pre-determined format, what's important is that your key qualifications get priority on your resume.

Are you sending out countless resumes with no luck for an interview? Don't fret.

According to resumepower.com, the problem you and other new graduates face is that hiring managers are more interested in what you can do for them than what you did in school (not to say that getting an education isn't important). The lesson is to use your resume to convince employers that your academic success is transferable to the workplace. Your resume should leverage your education and work experiences and showcase the knowledge and skills you bring to the table.
