A Recruiter's Guide to Getting the Job

As a recruiter, I’ve noticed that artists of all experience levels can experience difficulty landing a job due to little things like website or resume formatting. Students or recent grads aren’t sure how to best display their abilities or how to create a resume with their lack of experience, experienced artists don’t know how to format a portfolio for a supervising position, and experienced veterans might struggle to find the next gig due to an outdated portfolio.

In this circle, we will work on creating relevant resumes and/or portfolio pages targeting your desired jobs. We will also optimize your LinkedIn profile for recruiters and discuss the do’s and don’ts of interviews!

This circle is open to artists of all levels, including those looking to switch career tracks.
