Make your CV visually appealing: For most applicants, their CVs should contain little design and colour. However, as you are applying for a job in the arts and design industry, you are allowed to be more creative with your CV. Try to showcase your design skills by producing a CV that looks both visually appealing and professional at the same time.
Adopt a standard CV structure: A conventional CV contains the following sections: personal details, personal profile, achievements, employment, education, qualifications, skills, hobbies and references. You should try to stick to this format as much as possible because it won’t catch employers off guard and make it difficult more difficult for them to find your important information.
Stick to two pages: As a general rule of thumb, the shorter the CV the better. Surveys have shown that employers only tend to spend around 30 seconds reading each CV so any CV that is long-winded or unfocused will automatically be rejected. Remember, the purpose of your CV is not to get you a job but a job interview! Once you have secured a job interview, you can then share much more information about yourself with the employer.
Make correct use of white space: In your role as a multimedia designer, you will be designing visually appealing ads, banners, videos and animations. You are expected to know how to use white space (the area between design elements) to aid and improve the legibility and scannability of your document.
Use short sentences: Big, chunky paragraphs are boring and difficult to read so opt for short paragraphs, short sentences, bullet points and short subheadings to improve the impact of your CV.
I am a creative and organised multimedia designer with more than four years of experience in the design and media industry. I have excellent organisation skills, demonstrated in my ability to handle many projects simultaneously. I have completed more than 100 hundred projects for various clients from across the globe. My expertise includes designing and developing websites, apps, video adverts and animations. I am passionate about working in this industry and I wish to expand my knowledge and skills in using multimedia to create stunning products that meet user requirements.
Next, list down some of your key achievements or accomplishments.
According to the Cambridge Dictionary, an achievement is “something very good and difficult that you have succeeded in doing.”
What are examples of achievements to include on your CV?
Awards and certificates of recognition
Good grades/results in examinations

Specialist training courses/qualifications

Employment and work experience
The employment section contains details of any jobs you have had in your career to date, including full-time, part-time, voluntary, unpaid and work experience jobs.
Employers highly value relevant work experience so make sure you present this important information in such a way that it is easy to read and comprehend.
For each entry, write down the following information:
Start and end dates (if you’re still doing the job, just write “present” instead of the end date)
Your job title
The employer’s name
Your key duties and achievements
Tip: If you have a lot of relevant work experience, you can omit old or unrelated jobs from this section such as a part-time job you had in an unrelated field a long time ago.

The skills section is your opportunity to showcase the key skills that will help you in doing the job you are applying for.
For example, the ability to draw or animate is an essential requirement for a multimedia professional, so you should include this skill on your CV to demonstrate that you have what it takes to do your job well.
Tip: Don’t just write “design skills” because that doesn’t mean much! Instead, write something along the lines of, “Strong design skills, demonstrated in my ability to use InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop to create stunning graphics.”
The ability to use specialist audio, video and graphic editing/production software tools such as Adobe Premier, Photoshop, AfterEffects and Illustrator.

Hobbies and interests (optional)
The hobbies section of your CV is optional, you may leave it out if you want.
However, it’s recommended to include this section on your CV if you have relevant hobbies and interests that could add value to your application.
For example, stating that you “enjoy creating graphics for my personal technology blog” demonstrates to the employer that you have a keen interest in design and technology, an essential requirement for any media professional!
You can include your hobbies such as shooting, editing and uploading videos onto YouTube.
In my free time, I enjoy playing football with my friends at weekends. I also enjoy creating graphics and art to improve my design and photo editing skills.
Finally, you need to give details of your references.
Your references are people who can vouch for your personal characteristics, skills and abilities to the employer.
Your references could be many people such as your current or former employer, manager, teacher, etc. Basically, anyone who knows you well from past interactions.
They can’t be, however, a family member or friend.

Mrs Linda Sailor Senior Multimedia Producer, 333 Arts Ltd. Address: 92 Oak Tree Lane, Oxford, O25 9DH Tel: 0787435687209 Email:[email protected]
Note: You may also write, “References are available upon request” if you do not have enough space for your references on your CV or do not wish to disclose them at this stage.
Proofread your CV: You should always proofread your CV for spelling and grammar mistakes, especially when applying for a role such as this one in which you will be responsible for creating important banners, ads, posters, web posts, videos and animations. If your CV contains mistakes, employers will assume that the work you will produce for them will also most likely contain mistakes! Print out your CV, read it out loud and see if you can spot any mistakes. Ideally, you should ask a family member, friend or colleague to proofread it too.
Write a tailored CV for each job: You should send a tailored CV for each job that you are applying for because the requirements, needs and expectations of each job or employer are slightly different. The closer match your CV is to the job specification, the better your chances of being invited for a job interview!
Include a cover letter with your application: A cover letter is a great way to impress the employer and stand out from the other applicants as only 1 in 4 applicants send a cover letter with their job application. Your cover letter will be an excellent opportunity to give context to your application, further explain your suitability for the job and encourage the employer to invite you for a face-to-face job interview.
