Wouldn’t it be great to just design for design’s sake? If only there were money in that! But graphic design is a job, like any other job. And looking for a job requires a killer resume. On this week’s show we lucked out into getting certified resume writer extraordinaire and published author Kristen Fischer to sit in with us and dish out some excellent resume advice just for graphic design professionals. We discuss what should be included, what should be left out, and we answer the biggest question about graphic design resumes: how much “design” is too much? We also talk a bit about the do’s and don’ts of graphic design cover letters.
Since we have been getting so many great listener questions, we have decided to skip “Do Yourself a Favor” for the time being, and instead, we will answer two listener questions per episode, starting with this one.
