It’s your resume

This is what my resume looks like rn

You need to add more action verbs, results driven points and metrics to your bullets. Maybe add a section called “relevant coursework” and add some useful skills like tableau, PowerBI or something like that (easy to learn). I was like you at one point, graduated from UMGC last year

Weak verbs

Add clubs and coursework

Dear recruiters,
Some of you are so impolite that it’s disgusting. You contact creatives with the whole “we would LOVE to meet you because you’re amazing!!” bullshit. And then, when after the interview you realize we are not what you’re looking for, you don’t even bother to answer when we send you a note to thank you for having arranged the interview and taken the time to talk to us.
Remember: you are dealing with PEOPLE and if you don’t know how to deal with PEOPLE, do something else.
Thanks!
