Sample Resume Critique

Dear Tara -

Given your obvious artistic talents and your desire to make this your career, I chose a "Stylish" resume format to best present your qualifications. As you can see, I chose two of your pen & ink drawings for prominent display in your new resume. At a glance, an admissions director or a hiring manager can easily see what you have to offer.

Because contact data (phone number and email) is so important, I placed yours immediately beneath the drawings. The eye is naturally drawn to this information.

In the body of your new resume, I began with a Profile in which I describe you as "Award-winning," then list the mediums you work in.

For the next subheading, I chose "Honors." Clearly, you have many that should be emphasized. Also, because admissions directors and hiring managers are so very busy, most merely skim resumes as they search for the winning candidate. Therefore, it's very important that all achievements be brought out as quickly as possible.

Next, I listed your Education to show a hiring manager or an admissions director how well you worked in school, as you currently have no job experience.

For the last section, I chose to list your activities as they are directly related to your career goal of work as an artist.

Your new resume is well organized and filled with pertinent data, while also being aesthetically pleasing. All decisions to modify data were in keeping with the guidelines and standards set forth by the Professional Association of Resume Writers (PARW).

It was a pleasure serving you, Tara. Best of luck in your future career.
