    Hi Lindsay, Your resume looks great. The only suggestion I might have is to move your presentations and workshops section to below your teaching experience. Since you are considering applying to positions with an instruction focus, and you have some, but not a lot, of teaching experience I think that putting these two sections together will highlight your presentation and teaching experience.


  2. First off, I have recently been applying to the American Academy of Art in Chicago, I am jealous. I would maybe move your key accomplishments to the top. I know it is for the Academy of Art, but it kind of looks like you’re saying that is the only place you have had accomplishments at. Add some more to the list from previous jobs even to it. I would also put whether the job was a internship, part-time or full-time to the right of the job title. I have been told that numerous times.
