Coming from someone who once used to be in management, I can tell you that the design work would catch my eye - but your resume is all over the place. If you're applying for a job as a graphic designer, if I was the hiring manager, I would look at this and say "Okay, he has past employment as a tennis instructor and a DJ, claims he knows all these programs, but has no work experience with them." I would pass you over for someone who knew half the programs but had work experience or a portfolio to show off.

The design is good - but you need to expand your sections to allow more information. Ditch the part about being a tennis instructor or shorten it, expand the creative output part of your DJ experience; include a detailed portfolio with examples of your work in all programs that demonstrate ability (don't pick the pretty examples, pick the ones that show you know how to use your toolset).

Stuff like this is awesome to an employer (it's very eye catching, especially in a stack of white, bland resumes) - but if the information isn't there and relevant, it's just that: eye catching. Revise the info and it'll be both eye catching and "hire on the spot" material.

Thanks for the information its nice to get some professional feedback. The tennis section will be changing over the summer its just taking up the real estate because being a student there isn't much for it yet. In any case thanks for the info.

I would switch the tennis stuff out for being a student and give some details on your studies/any accolades you may have achieved. I know that, at least in my eyes as management, whenever I was looking at school stuff on a resume and saw something that said "this person did such a good job in ____ field that they received an award" and it was something that I could see a possible application towards in my employ? Major bonus points.

My award and and school information is actually that top section that is blurred out. I did so because I personally don't view dA as the best possible avenue to find employment, as I'm sure you understand. In addition I'm not entirely comfortable with spouting off that degree of info on something so open. Thus for my final draft I've swapped the tennis information for art competitions I've won/participated in, and made additional information available per request. Once I get my website up and running I imagine I'll make it accessible there.
