Can MeFi help me tweak my résumé for a career change into publishing and editing?
After a lot of soul searching, thinking, and research, I've decided that the career I am best suited for is that of an editor at a publishing house of some form or another. My work experience, while it has involved a small degree of business writing, is not in this field. I'm curious about how I should tweak, bend, fold, spindle, and mutilate my rèsumè to get my foot in the door.
Even though I lack professional experience, I am a blogger, and write for an online publication reviewing music. I also have taken a course in Tehnical Writing, and have a writing sample from the course.
This is my rèsumè as it stands now.
(Yes, my contact info is in there. I've nothing to hide.) I'll be relocating to NYC in August, if not sooner if a job comes my way.
Any suggestions are welcome. I know publishing is a field in, for lack of a better term, transition, but I want to work with words. Hopefully you folks can help make this happen. Thank you!
