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.
Answer by Allanas
Modeling is not “on the job training”. It’s not “PR like work”.
Modeling is modeling and if that’s what you did, you shouldn’t want to “spin” it as anything else. Put it like this:
XYZ Modeling Agency April 2006 – May 2007
Worked as a fashion model on runways and in print ads.
Met schedules and deadlines
Came prepared for each job as needed. i.e. bringing makeup, etc.
Projected the look and brand of each job in a professional manner
