1. Be clear about what you do.
“I’m a multi-talented creative individual” is a fancy way of saying “I’m not entirely sure what I do, so please don’t hire me”.
Stick to real roles like “writer”, “art director” or “designer”.
2. Lose the résumé.
If you’re trying to land your dream job with a “creative” résumé, you’ve already lost. Creative directors are looking for brilliant ideas, not bar graphs highlighting your self-proclaimed 75% mastery of Photoshop.
Get on LinkedIn instead. It’s quick to set up and harnesses the power of the internet.
3. Focus on your portfolio.
An online portfolio – filled to the brim with creative gems – will land you a job 99.99% of the time. No poorly executed piece of personal promotion required.
