I'm wrapping up my final term of college and I'm trying to get a resume together. I'm really wanting to go into the video game journalism field. I know it's a competitive industry and that it's hard to get your resume noticed in the vast sea of applicants. So, I decided that when I sent resumes into the video game industry I'd do something to get noticed.
Under my past work experience I would post the following amongst my other real work experience:
2007 â€¢ Pastry Chef, Aperture Science
Made cakes for test subjects. Dismissed with all other staff after a safety
incident involving nerve gasses. Made life or death decisions and
troubleshot for the GLaDOS AI system.
Now, some people I talk to love the idea. They agree that most people in the industry would get the joke and appreciate the humor.
Others think it's not such a great idea because it's either not serious enough or too kitchy.
Well F! What do I do?
