- Speaking of resumes, do you think you can pick out a resume from a stack in 6 seconds? If you’re Collin Burns, you can solve a Rubik’s cube in 6 seconds. If you are a human resource recruiter, then a recent study proves what you already know – the average recruiter spends about six seconds on a resume. We’ll test this theory out.

What will your resume say about you.
Power Words exercise (handout)- which resume power words best summarize what your learning and work experience.
In general, “keeper” resumes are:
- Neatly organized
- Free of grammatical errors
- Show accomplishments and results
- List experience that is related to the position applied for
- Easy to find contact information
Using your power words, work through your resume and add the power words to describe your work.
The goal is to get as much relevant information down and then we can round out the details and formatting later.

12:45 After Effects for Photography
A lot can happen after you press the shutter on your camera. This week, we’ll use our post lunch instruction time to learn about and practice some post photography image manipulation using After Effects. Not only is AE great for motion graphics and video, it is also a nice tool for photography.
Let’s get acclimated to AE for photography by adding some special effects to this sunset photo.
First thing is we’ll add the sun (since I was late to the sunset)
- Make new file from composition
Exporting & File Handling
AE can take native raw files, psd files and ai files.
The key way to use After Effects in non video related projects is to export to Photoshop when done in AE.
