Careers in Culture – Careers in Music and Sound Recording

> Résumés

Many performers use auditions and demos to get work. But if you want to work in other areas such as songwriting, administration and technical work, you'll need a résumé. In today's highly competitive job market, you cannot simply use the same résumé for every position. Target each résumé by tailoring your Career Objective section to the organization and the position you're interested in. Then write your résumé in such a way that the information reinforces your objective.

Résumé Tips

  • Keep it short – no more than one page long.
  • Make sure there are no spelling mistakes.
  • Keep it organized, neat and relevant.
  • Make it easy to read.
  • Emphasize past accomplishments.
