Media Arts Resume

There are different ways in which one could express artistry. One way of doing so is blending creativity with technology. Media arts is the term used for artistry performed through a technological medium.

In what capacity do professions exist in media arts?

The nature of jobs which exist under the media arts field is as versatile as they come. One could be a graphic artist or graphic designer to upgrade and design various websites, either commercial or corporate owned. The field of media arts also covers animation in movies as well as video games. Besides this, we can also talk about the involvement of media arts in the field of special effects and VFX for movies and television shows.

How to construct a media arts resume?

Usually, one constructs a media arts resume in the same manner as any other resume is constructed. You usually begin with your personal details, including the name, address, phone number, and email id followed by a single sentence career objective.

Next, you can include the "previous work experience" section which should mention the names of all the companies you have worked for in the past (all of which should have a separate sub-section and contain information on how many years you have spent in a particular company, what were the job requirements of the company (preferably in bullet points), what were the achievements (if you had any), and the highlights of your job experience.

Next, comes the "skills relevant to the job" section where (preferably in bullet list format) one has to list down all the relevant skills possessed by you and needed for the applied job.

You may finally end your resume with the last section, which is "educational qualifications" where, in descending order, you need to list down the names of the degrees or diplomas you have received from a prestigious university or college, along with the year of course completion from the university/college.

To help you better understand this concept, provided below is a sample of media arts resume.
