UniKoRn's diary of insanity

I was somewhat productive today, working on my portfolio.
bishi, keh, smirk
I've been working on my resume / portfolio today. Applying for regular jobs you can just submit a very plain resume. But when you apply for design jobs, you need samples of your work in there too. Simply slapping a few extra pages full of images doesn't cut it either. If you're applying for a design job you should actually *design* your resume layout so it doesn't look like it was made in Word. XD

Because I have such a huge lot of photography work it's tough choosing what to put in. As for my design work, the most recent stuff I have is my uni work. Unfortunately I don't have any samples from my time at Tru Blu, as my job ended abrubtly I didn't think to save anything off my work computer and onto a USB stick. Bleh. A lot of websites I've designed are no longer live or they've overhauled it with another design by someone else... but I can probably just open the files on my computer and screenshot them...when I find them. I have a hell of a lot of backup stuff to search through to find all my work.

I love my current job but I just don't earn enough money. So I either need another part time job to fill in my days off or to move on to a full time job.

Or ... just quietly.... I'm considering doing my Masters in Creative Arts post grad course at University. Which I could do around my current job. Just that I'd need to take out a FEE-HELP loan and get Austudy, because there's no way I can afford 20k for the course and all the ongoing costs for art supplies and printing.

I don't know if I should do it or not. Ethan kinda suggested it but I wasn't sure if he was joking or not, but I think he was serious because he knows I love academics. I've been helping him with his Art History class stuff because he finds it a little boring and I really like it. We watched a documentary on Michaelangelo the other day, it was really interesting!
