'''Faking Fortuny "Delphos"Pleats: The Quick and Dirty Method'''

Since I am an academic, who happens to be a costumedesigner, I make a point of listing my education first. The choice of which categories youput first in your resume, can and should be a clue to the reader about where your ownpriorities in your work lie.  
+
1. Choose a very thin silky fabric of either natural or synthetic fiber. Get more than you think you will need for both length and breadth, since pleating reduces the width considerably, and some length is lost to the gathering process.

2. Hand gather the two ends of the fabric tightly into small irregular pleats, and stitch the ends so they cannot come undone through much pulling and prodding.
  
I am fortunate in having a rather weird and memorablesubject for my dissertation. It helps you to stick in peoples minds. Try when working onyour resume to remember the thing or things you've done that might cause you to be mildlymemorable in a stack of very similar documents. Not all Ph.D.'s list the title of theirdissertation in a resume. Because I know mine sounds memorable, I do.
+
[[File:AdviceFortunypleatsHowto2.jpg]]3. Using two people, or one person and a stationary hook, twist the fabric very tightly until it starts twisting back on itself like a rope. Keep twisting until it forms into tight coils.

This is a perfect example of something that could beomitted over time. Since I have a BA, MA, and Ph.D., it hardly matters that I also had twoyears of junior college. However, I haven't dumped it because it is a well known juniorcollege with lots of famous graduates, and very many of my West Coast colleagues eitherwent there or know someone who did. My high school, whose only famous student was a 16year old ax murderess, is long since gone from my resume.

Please note how much information is packed into asmall orderly section. One of the main keys to resumes, is to convey as much informationas possible, in as easy to digest a manner possible. Also, the order of this section againshows the reader which areas I am most proud of. Teaching costume history and design comesfar before work on the Faculty Senate and as department chair, another way I try to tellthe reader who I am, and what my priorities are.  
+
4. Stitch the ends of the coils into place temporarily so that they cannot unwind during boiling.
  
[[Advice1pagesResume#4|4.Back to Resume Page.]]

+
5. Boil the fabric on the stove or in a dye vat for approximately 10 minutes.
  
I try to be as accurate in describing my position inany work situation as possible. Heavily inflated resumes usually "smell funny"to the reader, a super-accurate looking one builds confidence in the credentials set outin them.

. However, there are times when it helps to fudge. Thereal name for this course was Appreciation of Great World Drama, which sounded so verypretentious and silly, I "shortened" it.
+
7. Wring to remove excess water. If necessary, untwist and retwist. Microwave on high in one or two minute increments until you notice dry spots. Watch fabric closely during this step, as it is possible to burn the fabric. Use care when removing fabric as it will be steaming.
  
[[Advice1pagesResume#6|6 Back to Resume Page.]]

+
8. Try to keep your fabric as tightly coiled, as possible, and hang up to dry for about 24 hours. To dry more quickly , take a nylon stocking (an old pair of pantyhose works fine), cut off the toe, and encase your still-twisted fabric into the stocking, rather like a sausage. Knot the ends. Throw into the dryer with large towels.'''
  
Although this play has nothing seemingly in it toconnect it to costume design, it sits in my resume to tell folks I'm capable of working inother areas of theatre.

However, I do not shorten the titles of my articles.The reason for this is simple, by giving them their full length, they are much moreexplanatory of my specialized interests and knowledge.

This is also not a costume related piece of writing.I leave it in, along with several other references to my traveling talents, to hopefullyattract an employer who wants a professor to start a travel study program for theirdepartment.  
+
9. After drying, stitch normally into simple dresses or scarves, but do not press. Remember to always re-coil dress after washing, and keep dress in coiled shape during storage to retain pleats. This makes excellent garments for travel since they fit into small places and are deliberately wrinkled.

Papers are much easier to find time to do thanarticles. If you are having trouble demonstrating your areas of interest, and only havedesign credits (which usually don't say what your interests are,) volunteering to lectureon topics of interest at theatre conferences is a pretty painless way to give your resumesome personality. Besides which, to get conference folks to come, you need the sort ofcatchy titles that look intriguing in print.

A memorable or unusual job can stick on your resumefor years. It aids in interview conversation, because people are always curious about it.It also aids in being remembered in a stack of resumes. I recall reading close to fiftyresumes for a choreographer position once, and the two I still remember were respectivelya Mouseketeer and a Royal Ballet dancer years before I was born. Neither was stupid enoughto "drop" these long ago credits, although their work accomplished since hadlong ago made their old work irrelevant.
