Re-uploaded due to sound issues and TYPOS! I was rushing to head out to VidCon :/ No GOOD! Made mistakes and was still late…This 7 Day vid challenge doe! I have another video coming shortly after too!

Need help with your resume? Here are 5 tips with my multi-passionate friend Jazz – who’s had an interesting and diverse career. I brought her in today because she has been both the interviewer and interviewee and has a diverse career as a social media manager in the corporate world, happens to be brand guru, yoga instructor, bartender and so much more. She has really learned how to showcase the best and most hirable skills and is sharing her tips with us. This is Day 5 of 7 of my 7 day video challenge.

    I’ve always wanted to work in film or tv, on a set as part of the crew or
    in an office as a creative director. As long as I’m filming and hopefully
    directing that’s the job I want. Lately I’ve been using elance.com and my
    favorite site EVER FindSpark.com to find awesome jobs for the creative like
    me. I have 3 resumes; one for corporate work, an artistic/creative resume
    for all things film/tv/media/theatre, and the third I never distribute its
    more a list of every single experience and community I’m a part of just to
    keep a record. ?

    If you’re submitting an acting resume would it be considered
    “unprofessional” to use a creative template ?
