Creating a Short and Exciting Radio Resume
PDF Version
A good resume for a position in radio is concise, to the point, and exciting. Eliminate any unnecessary information; it will just clutter the page and your potential employer doesn't have time to read through it all anyway. However, do not sacrifice content for conciseness. Make sure every skill and qualification you include is specifically tailored to the open position and to the company you're applying to. This will ensure that you only include relevant information that can be quickly picked up by the person reviewing the resume. By creating a resume that is easy on the eyes and easily absorbed, you will greatly increase your chance of landing the radio job you deserve.

Creating a Short and Exciting Radio Resume
Any information that is unrelated to the industry will just clutter your page.
There are several things to keep in mind when you are writing a resume for the radio industry. First of all, like all resumes, you need to make sure that your resume is well-polished and makes logical sense. Don't think that just because you've proofread it, it's the best resume possible. It is very important to do your best to convey that you are the perfect candidate for the job – the radio industry is highly unpredictable, so you don't want to take any chances.

You should also keep in mind that the radio business is very popular. This means competition for the job may be tight. Therefore, you need to make sure that you stand out from all of the other applicants. The best way for you to do this is to truly sell yourself by showing you have the best record and have the most qualified experiences and skills.

Previous experiences should be prominent on your resume. Any previous work experience in the radio industry is priority and should be highlighted accordingly. Other professional experiences should be included with specific responsibilities held and transferable skills emphasized.

If you are an entry level applicant and do not have a lot of work experience yet, then your education should be emphasized above your professional experience. If your have any internships or other related coursework that would further emphasize your ability to handle the open position, these should be highlighted. Of course, if you have earned a degree in radio or a related field, do not hesitate to showcase it.

Wording things in the right way can make you stand out above others as well, even when they have the exact same credentials as you. Industry-specific keywords may come in handy to keep your statements concise and to the point, as well as action-packed verbs and high-impact phrases and descriptions. You don't want to be just another boring resume.

Another thing to remember is that your resume should only be one page long. The only time you may go on to an additional page is if you have extensive work and professional experience in the field. You should always strive to cut out any unnecessary information that would clutter the page; your potential employer probably won't even bother to read it all anyway.

Basically, you need to keep in mind that your employer is going through a lot of resumes and applications and will not be spending a lot of time reading every detail of your resume. He must be able to find and pick up the necessary information at a glance and know immediately who he is working with. Being concise and relevant will help the employer to be able to do this, which in turn will get you noticed and give you a better chance at landing that interview.
