Writing Your First Resume After Music Production School

April 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 198

It hardly seems possible, but your time at music production school is coming to an end. You've almost completed the entire curriculum, from intro to DJ training to the fine art of negotiating contracts in the biz. You have a business plan ready and waiting for that day when you have the funds to get your own studio up and running. But you're going to need to find a job before you can afford to do that. And to find a job, you're going to need the best resume possible. Here are some tips.

Music Production School Resume Tip #1: Choose your font wisely

The font on your resume is not the place to showcase your creativity. That's what your portfolio is for! So nothing fancy. Plain old Arial or Times Roman will do.

Music Production School Resume Tip #2: Choose your font size wisely

The body of your resume should be written in a 10-point font. You can put headings, such as the name of your music school, in a slightly larger 12- or 14-point font, if desired.

Music Production School Resume Tip #3: Black on white

Make it easier for recruiters and potential employers to read your resume. Use a black font on a white background, period. No experimenting.

Music Production School Resume Tip #4: Put the most important information at the top

But, what, exactly, is the most important information? For an entry-level applicant, recruiters and prospective employers will be most interested in your education, i.e., a description of your diploma or certificate from music administration school, as well as any relevant experience, e.g., an internship position in the music industry or part-time job in the field. If your experience is particularly strong, then put it at the very top of your resume, followed by your education.

Music Production School Resume Tip #5: Get feedback

Does your school have a job placement service? Make an appointment with a counselor to go over your resume before your graduate from music administration school. If you are on good terms with your teachers, you may want to solicit their opinions as well. And, if you do have an internship, you may want to ask your higher-ups there to take a look at your resume. It can also be useful to have friends and family read your resume to scan for typos and other errors.

Music Production School Resume Tip #6: Keep it strictly professional

Employers don't need to know whether you are married, whether or not you have children... Keep personal information off your resume. Save that information for the lunchroom when you finally do land your first job after music production school.
