Desktop Publisher Resume

A desktop publisher resume is written by a person who is well-acquainted with the need of suitable visuals that go along with the written textual information. These visuals are important in order to add more details or to just add an appeal to the entire print. Desktop publishers work with clip art and other graphic designing software such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, CoralDraw, etc., to design suitable logos and designs and also use magazine layout designing software such as Adobe Pagemaker to integrate those graphics with the text.

Using a combination of creative process, a logical pattern, and placement of data into the magazine/newspaper pages, they help in the process of getting the material ready for the final printing process. Sometimes, they also research on suitable topics and write quality articles, which are then approved by the editor.

In terms of skills, such a person should know all about the newspaper/magazine layout software such as Adobe Pagemaker and Adobe InDesign. Apart from this very necessary knowledge, they should also be experts in CoralDraw, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Illustrator.

In terms of education, they are required to have completed their graduation in graphic arts related courses. Further, a degree in journalism will also help in writing good articles before adding images to them.

Here are a few tips that need to be kept in mind while writing a resume.

Give priority to important information - While writing the resume, it is always recommended that under every heading, you should write the important information first. This will hold the attention of the reader and without wasting any time, it will also communicate the key elements of your job application to him.

Keep the font type and color same - Throughout the resume, for a smooth flow, it is necessary that you maintain the same font type and size of the words in the entire content. Also, one should not play around with the color of the text. Remember, this is an official document where the merit won't be granted over the designing part of it, but over its content.

Support your experience with examples - While writing the work experience part of the resume, it is necessary that you support all the points with one example each, probably your real life examples. This will give a clearer picture of your skills and performances to the reader.

Use bullet points - Usage of bullet points is necessary to write crisp and to the point resumes. Each point should be written in a short sentence. All the information should be relevant to the kind of job being applied for.

With respect to these points, here is a sample of desktop publisher resume for you.
