Plus, Jeanne Simon has started a new service writing resumes specifically for the arts and entertainment industries. Below is an introduction from Jeanne about what she offers.

Jeanne Simon:
Your Resume Sucks! is a resume writing service with writers who understand what it takes to have a successful career in the arts and entertainment businesses. Our resume writers are seasoned creative arts professionals with 50+ years combined experience and over 3000 credits.

Jeanne Simon, Resume Rebel My name is Jeanne Simon, and for the past fifteen years I've been in the position as a production manager, line producer, or producer to hire hundreds of crew people and I've seen so many resumes that, well--suck! I decided to do something about it, so I co-wrote the book Your Resume Sucks! which uses a story to illustrate our method of resume writing. We got such great feedback on the book from people using our method that I decided to start a resume writing service just for those of us in the creative arts.

Your Resume Sucks!The e-book version of Your Resume Sucks is yours for no extra charge with each resume writing order. To find out more about our resume writing services just go to

I have loved working in TV and films so much that I want others to get the chance to break in, move up, or switch career paths and you must have a knock-out resume to do it. It's my way of giving back to an industry thats been very good to me.

Artists dont feel left out! My partner, Mark Simon, has been a professional artist for over 25 years as a film designer, storyboard artist, illustrator, animator, cartoonist and more. He's also the author of the best-selling visual reference book Facial Expressions, Storyboards: Motion In Art editions 1, 2 and 3, Producing Independent 2D Character Animation, and contributing writer to AWN, Animation Magazine, Movie Maker Magazine, Cinefex and more. Mark oversees resume writing for all artists.

I consider job seekers to be the product, a resume to be the commercial, and the employer to be the consumer. A resume has approximately 3 seconds to grab the attention of an employer. Your resume must communicate clearly and concisely what you do and that youre qualified.

Our resumes are:
* Tailored for creative arts careers
* Tax deductible
* E-friendly for scanning, faxing, emailing, and editing
