Given the relative ubiquity of the web, a faxed resume can also be a lead-in to your on-line portfolio. You could simply fax them the url and let them do the surfing. Truthfully, when hiring professionals, even artistic ones, simple facts are important and resumes are invaluable. Architecture is indeed an art, but at the end of the day art must answer to facts, which is where a resume comes in. Where you went to school, when you graduated, where you’ve worked – these facts may seem trivial but they’re enormously important. Architects are often looking for people at various points in their career. It would be a waste of everyone’s time to interview a 10 year veteran for an intern position, or a recent graduate for a project management position, which could happen if all you had to view were portfolio samples. Compose a nice resume, it will help you develop your communication skills and graphic capabilities. If it helps, look at my own online version for an example of an overwrought resume – way too much crap there. You can do better.
