President of New Media Artists Agency, Inc.Cindy
places all kinds of creative talent in new, interactive media positions.Her
advice to resume builders:
"The really new thing for us is that we now insist that talent (read: job seekers) have Web sites that address their work.Your on-line portfolio should consist of your own personal site, along with links to work you've done for other people.You can't very well ask for a job in new media if you don't even have a site of your own," Buzby
Along with links to past projects, a personal site should include screen captures of your on-line work, she
adds."Screen captures will convey the actual look and feel of the work you did.They also allow you to point to the specific pieces of the site that represent your work."she
At the center of your portfolio site is, of course, your resume.
"The great thing about an on-line resume is that it can be constantly updated.Just be sure you take advantage of that fact and keep it as current as possible," Buzby
