I need a real job. I've done the disposable job route by working in retail and at Starbucks, while moonlighting as a musician. I certainly haven't given up on my musical pursuits, but I need to put some money on the table so that I can continue to engage in such activities as paying student loans and eating at least once a day. This is all somewhat foreign to me, which is why I am seeking guidance on two specific topics: Resume writing and job hunting. I do have a resume, but would like to create a more professional one that I feel confident in. There seems to be a million resume advice sites on the internet; does anyone recommend a specific one? Is there a helpful book out there? Should I enlist a resume writing service? Are there any templates that I can use that don't actually look like a template (I'm sure many employers see the same two resume templates from Word everyday)? Is there any advice in general that anyone would like to offer up? After I put together a decent resume, I need to find a decent job. I have extensive experience in many areas within the music business, and also have gained a healthy dose of experience in marketing (ie, executing and managing promotional events). Obviously I'd like to try and land a job that utilizes the multiple disciplines I've developed as a music professional (performing/creative aspects, producing, stage managing, recording, etc.) and/or as a promotional event manager... though I'd settle for anything that pays the bills. Where should I look? Craig's List is ok, but hardly anything good pops up there. Are Monster.com or jobseeker.com good resources? Any suggestions as to web sites or services I should check out? I'm really heading into uncharted waters. Macrumors is essentially the only forum that I regularly visit and trust, so I'm turning to all of you! Any help would be much appreciated.
