Art History Major Resume

An art history major resume highlights the most essential aspects of the candidate's educational background, which would enhance the profile and make it eligible for an internship or a permanent employment. Whether you are seeking full time or part time employment opportunities has to be specified in the career objective, or the title. It is always a good practice to include a title to your resume. Generally, the objective acts as a title to your profile, but a separate title that explains your career path or the field of interest in a few words will eventually give the reader a clearer picture. Following the title, include a career objective, skillfully crafted to express the purpose of the application. Include the information of any internship/training programs that you may have undergone in the past, as the information is of great significance.

Highlighting Your Academic Qualification

Recently graduated students should provide the details of their academic qualification with little elaboration; elaboration, not elongation. Contents of this section should comprise of details such as the name of the degree, the name and location of the university or institute, the year of completion of the course, and grades obtained. Along with these details, include two or three points pertaining to the modules that you are most familiar with and the knowledge that you posses, with respect to the particular study program. Highlight them using bullets for better and clear visibility. Similarly, repeat the procedure for all other academic courses that you have completed. Bear in mind to arrange all information in reverse chronological order, so as to feature the most recent happenings on top.

Zooming in on your skills

The ability to market oneself makes it seem that there are highly competitive job seekers around. Advertising one's own profile it is. And those who succeed get the job first. Is this competition? No, it only seems like a competition. There's a job for every candidate. The search, though, might become extended. Putting forth your skills with enhancement will successfully gain the confidence of the reader, and also inform him/her about your strengths and capabilities. Include about 5-6 points, leaving out all the general skill sets. In case you have earned any medals, awards, or rewards during your education or internship, you are most welcome to add the details in a separate section as "accomplishments."
