Creating a Good Resume
Given the state of our economy and the number of designers, developers, directors, etc. that apply for a single job, I feel that the topic of Resumes has to be discussed. While in school, my professors taught me what they believed were good practices for designing a resume. However, after graduating college and getting into the REAL design world, I've found that what I learned about resumes in school is far more different than what actual employers are looking for. Having worked at design firms for awhile now, I have a lot more experience under my belt and noticed that my credentials have expanded. My need for a multiple page resume might be required butI know that employers don't have time to look through a multiple page resume.
With that said, I then ask you all (especially the art/creative directors out there) :
What does a good Resume look like? How many pages is too many, and what gets an employers attention?
