A Graphic Design Sample Resume

Show off your talents with a great resume!

After completing your training in graphic design school, you’ll be ready to show off your skills with a professional resume. A resume helps potential employers view what you’ve learned and practiced in a training program and internship.

As you conduct your job search, you’ll learn what the qualification for each job role entail. This will help you decide which job skills to highlight on your resume. If you’re worried about not having much job experience, then writing a skills-based resume can help you emphasize the skills you’ve learned and the internship experience you have completed.

Once you’ve finished writing your resume, you may attach it to your application and submit it electronically. You may also send it via email. When you go on your job interview, make sure to bring a few copies of your resume, cover letter, and list of references.

If you don’t know how to start writing your resume, then Branford Hall can help! Use our sample graphic design and animation resume below to help you get started. Students and recent graduates may also contact our Career Services Department to schedule appointments that can help you excel at your job search. Best of luck!
