Could someone critique my resume? I've been told it has too many adjectives.?
I earned a bachelors of arts degree several years ago in digital media. Due to circumstances I was never ever to utilize it to find a good paying job (i.e. no internship, experience). Five years later I have been stuck in a dead end job. Please keep in mind I am not set on trying to get a position in my field of study but would like to reap the benefits of earning a degree. I always hear of people getting good jobs which had nothing to do with their degree. Attached is a copy of my current resume. I having difficulties in making a mundane dead end job look spectacular. Could someone please give me some strong suggestions on making it more desirable to potential employers without lying?
