How to Make a Production Coordinator ResumeBy Scott Nicholas Amendolare, eHow Contributor
In my time in the entertainment industry, Iâ€™ve seen thousands of rÃ©sumÃ©â€™s come across my desk. The irony is that oftentimes a person with the highest level of skill has a more difficult time selling themselves on paper whereas a person with less skill has no problem selling their experience beyond their true abilities. A Production Coordinator is hired for their ability to be highly efficient and organized and your resume must reflect that. This article will show you how to construct an effective Production Coordinator resume. Please look to the example rÃ©sumÃ© in order to see the step by step applications of the directions.Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Things You’ll Need:
- A computer with printing capabilites
Lay out your personal information in a clear, simple and professional manner. This is important as it says so much about you as an individual. Avoid overly fancy fonts and ostentatious presentation. List you name in an 18- to 22-point font. In this example, the name is prominent with a line underneath to separate the contact information. List your full name and address with all your contact numbers as well as an email address.
Lay out your primary work experience. Start with information about work directly related to the job you are going after. For this example we will be using a rÃ©sumÃ© with a three-column format as it makes this clean and easy to read, and condenses the information so that you can limit the number of pages. Starting with the left column, list the job title you held. In the next column, list the title of the show you worked on. In the last column list the company that produced the show and the year it was released.
Next, lay out your directly related experience. This is experience that is similar to the coordinator position. List experience that shows you have held positions of responsibility and were required to perform tasks that are similar to the ones you are looking to perform.
List any special award(s) that you have earned over the course of your career.
List any special skills, software knowledge, guild or union membership and language ability that would be pertinent to the entertainment industry.
List your education. Make sure that you list any educational distinctions you have earned during that time. Do not forget to list years of graduation.
On the bottom of the page, centered in the middle, type the line: References available upon request. Although some people like to list their references on a separate sheet, it is really more professional to have a prospective employer request them.
Tips & Warnings
- Make things clean and simple.
- Do not list your references.
- Use no larger than a 12-14pt font for the headings and 10 points for the information.
- Spacing of the resume should be as follows: Use a 9pt space for the line per credit and a 12pt space to separate each of the headings.
- Do not pad your resume; people can tell when you are lying.
