Arts & Media Example Resumes
Arts & Media resumes typically include…
- Link to a portfolio of your work
- Course projects
- Skills related to area of emphasis
- Workshops, exhibitions, and trainings
- Related work experience or on-campus involvement
Resumes should be only one page and have strong visual appeal with a balanced combination of transferrable and technical skills (think communication + software).
Consider creating in Adobe InDesign if that is a skill you have and want to show. Don’t have the skills to create a logo? Do a trade with a fellow artist friend who can help you with the design aspects of your resume if you are going for roles in the arts.
Student Example #1: Chris Brohm, Sophomore Film & TV major
- Chris wants his technical skills, production projects, and eagerness to learn to stand out when applying to internships.
- As a Film & TV major, he’s less focused on the details of his bullet points and more focused on his skills and the amount of projects he’s worked on.
Student Example #2: Andrea O’Bert, Senior Art History Major
- Andrea wants to highlight her design skills, job titles, and work experience.
- She’s incorporated a logo into her contact information to show off some of her design skills and indicate her skills in photography.
- This is a good example of how to format your experience details on one line.
