"What 15 RIT Photo School Alumni Have To Say To Current Photo Students"

Keep in mind that you will be competing with many other equally talented and qualified applicants for a given job. Anything to make you stand out and make that photographer hire you is something you want to emphasis. Knowing a second language or sign language will be helpful. Being comfortable with children or having experience working with animals will definitely give you an edge. Any unique skill that you have that is applicable to the job in some way is worth mentioning. Some of these skills can be best talked about in a cover letter, which should always accompany a resume. On that note, learn to write an effective cover letter. This is your introduction to the photographer, and excellent writing skills are always impressive.

Even more important these days...
