Physically Challenged (Broadcasting) Resume

The resume of a physically challenged broadcasting professional is quite similar to that of any professional within the field of media and broadcasting, except for the fact that the candidate is physically challenged, is mentioned in the career objective. Limitations only come in way in terms of performing certain activities; however, there are several sectors within broadcasting which gladly accommodate those who cannot perform physical functions above a certain extent. Competition is merely a perspective, a skillfully crafted application is bound to serve its purpose of getting you the opportunity of an interview. So, competition only exists until there is self-doubt. Contacting the employer prior to drafting the application is bound to bring in more clarity on the subject. It will help you understand the employer's expectations, and eventually you'll know how to present the information. Expression it is, and a mode of communication too - your resume. Spend enough time organizing stuff, so as to maintain a uniform flow of information.

The career objective - frame it well

The objective acts as a title to your resume, it outlines your profile to the reader. Carefully frame a couple sentences that describe your willingness to work for broadcasting, wherein the information that you project must hold somewhat relevance to the employer's needs. Check the company's website and discuss its vision with your recruiter beforehand, and try to come up with an objective that would seem like the ideal match to a desired candidate's profile. IT is therefore important to understand the job specification; merely reading through is not enough, one needs to grasp the essence. The level of involvement of the reader in your application is greatly determined by the quality of your objective, as it plays a major role in acquiring the attention of the reader.

Showcase your key skills

Immediately following your objective, include a section that is dedicated to zooming in on your key skills and fundamental knowledge of the subject. Keep all information brief and direct, highlighting them using bullets in order to facilitate a clearer visibility. According to your area of specialization and the requirements of the job profile, pick only the significant skills sets (about 4-6 points) and lay them down with a little enhancement for the recruiter to take in.

Employment history

As you move on to describe your previous work experience, you need to include the fundamental details such as the name and location of the organization, your designation within the company, the duration of employment, and your job responsibilities and duties. Here, try to get as specific as possible in terms of stating your previous job descriptions. See to that all information that you project in this section holds utmost relevance to the profile that you are applying for. Think of the activities that you had been involved in during your previous employment, and pick only 4-6 of the most significant points to include per employment. Arrange all information in a reverse chronological order, so as to feature the most recent ones on top.
