A recruiter friend of me helped me tweak my one-page resume (which follows all of the MT/CT rules), and he now thinks I should design a two-page resume with more creativity and an awards section since I'm a creative professional. Since graphic design is a major component of my skillset, should I:
- include more design elements in my resume to demonstrate my personal brand (keeping it professional, clean and understated, of course), and
- develop a two-page resume that includes awards (which provides third-party validation for quality work in a subjective field) and allows more room for design?
I already have a personal website that features a portfolio of design samples and a more detailed list of my achievements, which I can also point to on my resume.
PS--I just bought the Interview Series, my first paid MT/CT product. Thanks for everything!
