Take 10 of the most driven advertising students in the country. Give them three different roles. Put them in an agency for two week for an extensive internship. Then repeat this process two more times.
Here are our plans:
I hope to get in touch with some of the agencies to work out an arrangement wherein I get to shadow a team for a day and then report it creative/tech event review-style.
Do’s, Don’ts & Maybes
- Have it in mutiple formats: Word, PDF, Printed, Online. www.junbechan.com
- Design it in the style you wish to design
- Reader friendly
- One page
- List items in order of importance
- Use active verbs (Great resource for resume action verbs: www.quintcareers.com/action_skills.html)
- Emphasize relevant skills
- Quantify if you can
- Give concrete examples of accomplishments (“saved company 8 billion dollars”)
- Common abbreviations and bullet points okay (avoid full sentences)
- Lie or misrepresent yourself
- Try to be something you aren’t
- Use personal pronouns like ‘I’ or ‘Me’
- List High School—nobody cares
- Include irrelevant hobbies
- Give reasons for termination
- Include salary requirements or salary history
- Include a photo of yourself
- Mention marital status or children
- Use cliche adjectives like “dynamic self starter”
- Go back too far in your history
- USE AN OBJECTIVE? Some say yes, some say no. If you’re having trouble keeping to one page then definitely no. If you do use an objective make sure it is well written, will fit any job you are interested in and focuses on what you will do for the company
- WHY NOT try to “show” your objective through your style/design (if you have a well defined identity, it should come through.)
- REFERENCES upon request is optional (it’s considered a given)
- GPA/honors etc. may or may not be important—be cautious. Don’t use unless you really think it’s appropriate
I would like to CONGRATULATE both Bram Pitoyo and Hermicar Gaxiola upon their Graduation. These two were more than just my colleagues, they were amazing, amazing designers and had done spectacular things while attending the Art Institute of Portland. They never fail to amaze me and I cannot express how much I am honored to have had the opportunity to go through most of my education with them. Thank you for everything you’ve done and again, congratulations guys and I look forward to seeing you two bloom into what you’ve worked so hard for. Good luck!
Christine Vo (me) has finally finished her website! It has been 8 years of constant changes but I think she’s pretty set with this one. Have a look!
Write me a little note of your thoughts! I would love to hear what you have to say. Good AND BAD!!!
