If you're like the rest of us, (human beings ;)... this story may seem a little too familiar:

You talk a little.
You exchange cards.

You should be happy right?
But the truth is, you have no production experience or references...
...and only a couple of film school credits or corporate positions that you think don't relate...

*Totally NOT what we've received from online production job service candidates.....
*Not even what we've received from Film School Students....
You want to work in this business... But how do you know what format your resume needs to be in and what information it needs to contain?
