For non-managers seeking an unconventional 1-page resume with less content and more focus on design and aesthetics. This includes actors, artists, producers, choreographers, musicians, graphic designers, clothing designers, interior decorators, inventors, bodywork specialists, and environmentalists.
Be Yourself, Be Successful
- Stand out from the crowd. Our carefully crafted resumes will exemplify your artistic talent, personal philosophy, and industry mastery, not just recap your work history.
- Become an expert interviewer. The BrightSide resume development process doubles as career counseling, helping you align your multitude of strengths.
- Attract offers you can be proud of. Just because you do what you love, doesn't mean you can't love your salary.
We've won several awards for our resume writing, specifically in the category of "Creative Resumes" given to us by the leading careerists' group, Career Directors International (CDI).
Resume-writing, if taken seriously, is an art form in terms of balancing white space with wording, selecting and augmenting graphical elements, and accessing the music that is inherent to language. We strongly believe this, and our clients benefit because of it.
A Different Kind of Resume
Perhaps you're looking to demonstrate your style and design sense through the use of imagery, font, color, balance, and space. Often the most challenging resumes to create are the ones that look effortlessly designed.
Or, maybe you're envisioning a resume reflective of your trade: For a Theater Director, a document that mimics an 8.5 x 11 performance program; for a chef, something that reads like a recipe and looks like a dinner menu; for a massage therapist, a brochure that captures the trinity of body, mind, and spirit in the simplistic repeated shape of a triangle....
Whatever your desires, we sculpt resumes into remarkable yet professional documents that will bring the right kind of attention to your craft. Executive Director, Cliff Flamer, has an artist's touch as well as numerous industry credentials.
