OTA Talent shares 3 ways to enhance your resume to help you secure the TV news position of your dreams.

In the media and broadcast industry, TV stations and news networks want to see your demo reel to determine if you are a fit for their open positions. Another important factor is your resume that demonstrates why you are the best candidate for the position and how your expertise makes you the top candidate.

Step 1: OTA Talent advises to use action-oriented items to share your past career successes!

Instead of writing a simple description of what you did: Anchor the 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. newscast.

Try adding what you brought to the position and accomplished: As anchor, increased the 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. ratings by 32%!

Step 2: Create a resume that is easy to digest and stay away from paragraphs.

As America’s largest TV News Agency, OTA Talent receives a lot of resumes from prospective clients. The easiest ones to read have short bullet points and quickly highlight the candidate’s expertise. Hiring managers will appreciate the ability to take a quick glance at your resume and understand what you accomplished.

We often see resumes with lengthy paragraphs and it is difficult for the reader to understand what you accomplished.

Step 3: Use a clean design on your resume and stay away from two many graphics. OTA Talent advises you stay focused on great content.

Since you will be applying for tv news positions and not a graphic artist, focus on a clean and simple resume design. Too many colors or graphics will be a distraction to what matters most – your accomplishments and how you can bring value to your prospective employer.
