I wrote an article about the seven most common formatting errors I see on production résumés and it was published here at Production Hub.
Then to my delight, the article was picked up and reviewed here at No Film School – with some more astute comments.
Hey, I like this publishing thing.
The truth is I do a lot of writing about how to fix résumés in general, and offer a lot of free tips both here on my site, on Facebook (lots of links) and wherever else I can publish articles.
BUT when you send me your résumé to review and reformat, I take your particular credits, your work experience and your career goals as the foundation of my customized report.
I love reading about people’s credits. I follow through on every item on your résumé, checking on the project, examining the other credits of people involved. How your credits are ordered on your résumé makes a difference. You want the first thing the UPM sees to be something impressive, or intriguing, or familiar – so that he or she keeps reading.
Eventually you will have a whole body of work that will be impressive, but when you are first starting with very few credits, the trick is to appear interesting enough to want to interview.
