Looking for a phrase for my resume to describe my period of modeling?

Friday, December 30th, 2011

Question by layhoma2004: Looking for a phrase for my resume to describe my period of modeling?
When you have a behind desk job in a firm, you can write about it on your next resume for job hunting. But let’s say I have been a model for several years and wanted to apply for a white collar job. My years of experiences as a model can be described as ” on the job training ” or ” PR- like work”. What is the best description I can use to write on my resume in applying for a business job. A short and brief phrase.

Best answer:

Answer by Sparklesparkle88
Just so you cant get caught out I’d probably put –

“AGENCY NAME
Modelling/PR
List of duties: liaising with other agencies, co-workers and companies in order to maintain interest and professional relationships. Organisation of product portfolio. Researching companies and company representation. Etc.”

Maybe not an answer you were looking for and you could tweak it to suit you but it’s better to be honest rather than caught out and blurting out “I was just a model!” at an interview if they ask you what sort of PR you did.
—————-
Also something like this will lead their questions for you – “give us an example of your portfolio organising?”
Response: “After researching the company I was hired for, it was both the photographers choice as well as my own to decide which pictures were a) suited to the client and b) would encourage more work at a later stage.”

To be honest, as long as you tell them you want experience in a more practical and permanent line of work and can explain why then they probably won’t pay much attention to past roles unless it’s a highly qualified and/or demanding role.

Best of luck.

Fascinating suburban trains in Mumbai, India !

Friday, December 30th, 2011

I was travelling in Mangala/Lakshadweep Express a few months ago from New Delhi to Trivandrum when came accross this suburban train in the outskirts of Mumbai in a parellel track. We travelled together a few minutes before we overtook that train. This made me study a bit more about the amazing suburban trains of Mumbai: The Suburban Railway System in Mumbai is the most complex,densely loaded and intensively utilized system in the world. It has the highest passenger density in the World – 6.3 million commuters travel everyday. Two zonal Railways, Western Railway (WR) and Central Railway (CR), operate the Mumbai Suburban Railway System. It is spread over an expanse of 319 route kms. The suburban services are run by Electric Multiple Units (EMUs). 191 rakes (train sets) of 9-car and 12-car composition are utilized to run a total of 2226 train services. It is operated on 1500 Volt DC power supply from overhead catenary. Follow this url- en.wikipedia.org to learn more about Mumbai suburban railway.

Dry brush filter version of the original photo, taken through the glass of The Country Store in Quemado, New Mexico. The next image is a version that used the watercolor filter instead. I think that the next version is my favorite. Appreciate any comments on any of these three versions.
