CV by Job type: Crafts CV


The first step in creating a craft resume is determining how many years you’ve been in the crafting business or career. Think back to where you create your first paper snowflake or paper plate art – you were a crafter long before you started earning money for it.

Start a list of all of the items you have created over the years Do you knit? What do you knit? These include sweaters, scarves, blankets, whether you specialize in adults or children etc.

Do you sew? What do you sew? Clothing, bags or unique dressings for children or adults etc.

Think back if you’ve ever created your own designs and produced them, maybe greeting cards or clothing? Have you ever sold your works? These are all important questions to ask yourself. It all builds up your resume and your confidence as well.

If you’ve ever been published in magazines make sure to include that in your craft resume. This is a great reference point for experience on your resume. Not only did you achieve publication of your design, but it’s a clear image of your expertise in crafting.
