On Tuesday the 21st of November, I attended and participated in a Creative CV Writing Workshop run by the CSAD Careers Advisor Es George. From the group discussion that took place I exercised my thinking on the purpose and components of the CV. I aim to employ this knowledge into practice with my own CV at a later stage in my practice when I have gained more accomplishment in my working Book Project so I can approach it with more confidence. In this workshop Es presented numerous examples of the Creative CV’s based on a variety of individual and specialised practices. What made the Creative CV different to the ordinary CV that I have previously written is that is focuses on the subject of its purpose and the best examples employed subtle hints of the practice and visual flavour of work into the design of the CV. The most important element of the CV to remember is that the words and their selectivity matter most here and the portfolio is where the visual work can dominate.
Thanks to this opportunity I was made of aware of the service that Es can offer to my professional practice and has directed me to where I can find the resources to refresh this information being on Moodle and books available in the Library.
