Below are some thoughts about this resume
from an Executive Director at Sony Animation.
This is your typical Production Assistant resume.
The “objective” is very short and to the
point. No need for fancy opening
sentences like “Looking for vibrant
company that will best utilize my diverse
skills,” etc. – AVOID IT. If you leave the
objective off completely, that is also
acceptable. Quick side note, cover letters
are helpful but not essential. Those who
can write VERY SHORT cover letters have
the advantage because most of the time
employers are quick reading them anyway,
and pay less attention to how articulate
someone is, and more attention to how
quickly someone can communicate their
point by taking as little time of their
prospective employer as possible.
Without much experience, this person used
a few student films to fill up the resume.
There is no rule on this, but I thought it was
done in a discrete way that gave a sense
that he was interested in filmmaking, and
sort of downplayed them with only the
barest of information which is what
employers would appreciate.
