A resume is a preliminary way to present your skillset. It is an opportunity to create an impression, show who you are as a professional, and makes the connection between your skills and those required for the job you are applying for. For your resume to work effectively, it needs to be easy to read, well-prioritized, and leave the reader knowing who you are and that you can do what is necessary. It is the best way to provide information and make an impression to an individual or an organization. If you are creating a resume for something other than a job, please consult the following links for help:
- An Artist’s Resume (for exhibitions), Artist’s C.V.(for teaching positions), Art Historian C.V., and Museum Professional C.V.: CollegeArt.org.
- Curriculum Vitae (for graduate school, scientific, or academic positions). http://www.quintcareers.com/curriculum_vitae.html. A Curriculum Vitae (or C.V.) is a more comprehensive version of a resume. Rather than being targeted like a resume, the C.V. is an overview of a person’s professional life and qualifications.
