Job Bullets

  • Interactions with people on the job;
  • Job specific skills/projects;
  • General support/maintenance activities.

Project Bullets

  • give a meaningful name
  • description/purpose/story of the work
  • production role (producer, videographer, editor)
  • technology used
  • length/scope of work
  • how used by clients/users and analytics if relevant.

In working on your first resume draft, consider adding all jobs and all projects. Better to start with more than less. We can review the language and appropriateness of each item listed in our next meeting.
