Holiday Resume Help

Setting the classic holiday scene:  As you are picking up your 17th sausage ball, your parents and all of your aunts and uncles will be asking you what you are planning to do with your life after graduation (or for some of you in January).  You take a deep breath, finish chewing, and then think to yourself..."baby steps.  First I need a resume." #eyeroll

So this blog is for you - hopefully it helps!

When sitting down to review or write your resume for the first time, you should be asking yourself two things:

1. What is your professional brand?  What do you want your supervisor and co-workers to say about you when you aren't around?  What professional impression are you leaving?  Your unique brand (who you are and what you can offer a company) should be expressed throughout your resume graphically and written.  Make sure your contact information heading and layout are marketing your strengths and brand (no templates).  For example: if you think you are organized at work, your layout should reflect organization.  If you are saying you are creative, your resume should be creative and only yours.  Your profile should NOT be in first person - this isn't eharmony.  Think of this section as sounding like a mini skill bio.  No more than 2 concisely detailed sentences professionally outlining your brand.  What can you offer a company.  They should know your professional brand and a little about your personality from glancing at your resume for 6 seconds.

2. Who is your audience?  Make it relevant for those reading it.  It should be about you understanding what they need and being able to serve them.  Be creative with subject headings to tailor it to your audience.  Seeking artist management?  Have an "artist management" section or separate your "industry experience" from your retail experience.  You want your audience to see the most relevant information easily.  The most relevant bullets should come first in your duties.  If they need someone with licensing experience, those bullets come before the "answered phones."  Do your research to understand your audience.  Your resume isn't your biography - it is a professional snap-shot of how your skills are relevant to what they need.

Volunteers needed for Thistle Thursday (ASAP!)

CAA sponsors a monthly event at Thistle Stop Cafe called Thistle Thursday where they bring in local musicians for a benefit concert each month. They need volunteers for this Thursday's event (December 4th) to help set up and tear down. Two volunteers would work 2:30-4. Please email Lisa Peterson at lisa.peterson@pop.belmont.edu if you can volunteer! She will reach out and connect you with the event contact.


Thistle Thursday, December 4: Stephen Kellogg & Friends

Stephen Kellogg & Friends at the Thistle Stop Cafe
As Part Of The Every Night's A Little Different Tour!

PLEASE NOTE: Thistle Stop Cafe reserves the right to release seats if the ticket holder is not present by 7:00pm on show day.

Half of the proceeds go to Thistle Farms & the Thistle Stop Cafe.

When Stephen Kellogg was growing up his musical interests were divided between his father's record collection, devoted to '70s singer/songwriters like Jim Croce and Cat Stevens, and his sister's rock & roll discs, dominated by hair metal acts like Bon Jovi and Mötley Crüe. In a curious way, Kellogg's music represents a meeting point between these two styles, with songs that delve deep into the personal, but make room for a sense of fun, while the music, which is intelligent and intimate, is also full of passion and electricity. Stephen has played more than 1400 shows in the last decade and made a life he loves complete with a career he's proud of.

Run by the Magdalene graduates and residents, women who have survived prostitution, trafficking and addiction, the Thistle Stop Cafe will sell Nashville-based and fair-trade coffees, teas and healthy catered foods. As with our product line, the food will be as good for the body as it is for the earth. 

The Cafe will be a gathering place for the Nashville community and guests to Thistle Farms. A stage will give the women a place to share healing stories and provide opportunities for artists to showcase their creative works.
