Good morning,
Ladies & Gentlemen!


Welcome back to your favorite E-Day learning!
I have divided this lesson into three parts: the overview (you're reading it now), the inspiration, and the assignment.

Here's how this works.

  1. Read this overview (the introduction) explaining an important facet of graphic design.
  2. Watch the video, the inspiration, expounding upon the the effects of what we do as designers.
  3. Read the design brief to discover the challenge that lies in store.
  4. You will have ten days to complete the assignment and turn it in.

Lets get started...


 

Résumé

You have 6.25 seconds to make an impression.

Will you end up in the follow-up pile, or in the rubbish pile?

Nobody can ever underestimate how important it is to have a good resume. First impressions count, and the first impression that a potential employer will have of you, is going to depend on how you present your resume. This is going to be your one and only chance to capture a potential employer’s attention, or for your resume to be tossed into the file of those they don’t want to pursue.

The first important thing to realize is that

Designer Resumes are not the same

as "regular" resumes.


Start by reviewing these articles

The study also shows that recruiters spend 80% of that six seconds looking at just six things:

Name
Current title/company
Previous title/company
Previous position, start and end dates
Current position, start and end dates
Education

Emphasize your strengths on your resume, in your cover letters and in your interviews. It may sound obvious, but you’d be surprised how many people simply list everything they’ve ever done. Convey your passion and link your strengths to measurable results. Employers and interviewers love concrete data.
— Marcus Buckingham

Trying to put it together?

A great place to start is with an online resume generator that will ask you the question to help you figure out what needs to go on your resume.


A CRITICAL PART OF YOUR RESUME IS YOUR DIGITAL (ONLINE) PRESENCE.

EMPLOYERS LOOK AT EVERYTHING.
