Today in the office I got assigned to put submitted resumes into a binder for my line producer.Â As I was going through the resumes I started to realize that there are some extremly terrible production resumes out there and I mean seriously terrbile.
If you are making aÂ production resume or a CV for you silly Brits,Â please just keep it simple.Â All you really need is four columns.Â First for the date you worked on the project, second for your title, third for the show name and network and the last one for the production company and viola!Â You have the perfect production resume. Â Â You do not need to describe every single thing you didÂ in your past positions because usually the person hiring you will know exactly what a PA does.
Also another tip.. make sure your resume makes it clear what type of position you are applying for.Â For example if you are applying for a production assistant position make sure you have production assistant positions on your resume, not your summer job working at McDonalds.Â Keep in mind that this is the first thing a potential employer will see from you so make it look good..not like you just threw it together 10 minutes ago.
If you are interested in seeing what my resume looks like for your reference feel free to email me.Â I am no resume expert..but I do keep getting hired so I must be doing something right.
