this absolutely started out as a existential drunkard thread, but now that i have you here...
How much stuff should I put on a resume for this? Like amongst the things I think might be necessary information: I've worked two radio DJ gigs (top 40 & oldies), I've written for a number of online publications (including CoS & THE Tactile Tracks), I worked for an NPR affiliate for a time with a number (read: like maybe 4) stories getting picked up nationally, I currently work for a local booking & promotions company that deals with a bunch of mid-level artists. Written for the college paper and also spent time being a Marketing Manager at my local Jimmy Johns. I also do various volunteer work with local groups.
I have a resume and a cover letter but it doesn't include all that other stuff. How much of that should I actually put in though? Isn't it a pretty constant rule that the longer the resume, the emptier it actually is or whatever?
And I've sort of been considering Louisville or Nashville too. The only thing is I've spent 100% of my life so far living in the midwest and I kind of like the idea of living somewhere else. I also sort of hate Chicago, just for the record.
What kind of media policy stuff did you do Horn? My major is actually Econ / Poli Sci w/ a minor in Telecommunications so DC might have jobs with a nice blend of what I offer.
