For my week one project in Career Development, I have created a tailored resume for submission to an opportunity post graduation from Media Communications at Full Sail University.
In my particular resume, I opted to use a modern style design that matches a professional level of representation for interest in working for Cirque du Soleil. The purpose for choosing a modern design is based on the “creative” aspect of Cirque du Soleil, as well as maintaining a professional and classy feel to the resume. Maximizing the white space of my design also seems relevant to the creative styling of the Cirque du Soleil shows.
Most important to represent in my resume were elements targeted at my administrative skills, storytelling, and ability to communicate. Additionally, I chose to place emphasis on both online and in-person collaboration. Actual tools skills were moved towards the bottom of the resume, as they would be of benefit, but my professional profile created for the opportunity takes center stage of my resume.
The opportunity for which this resume was created, is for a Stage Manager internship at Cirque du Soleil. This is an entry point opportunity to b e part of live events, as well as opening doors to other media related opportunities within the organization.
