“I get so many resumes–for Bill Blass and and my own line–so I’m looking for someone who shows enthusiasm, and not just for fashion. Resumes that are directed to the needs and philosophy of the company, that convey what appeals to the applicant about us, catch my eye. It’s much more effective to send a very specific resume to five companies you really want to work for than 15 that you don’t really care about.
Spelling mistakes and grammar mistakes really get to me. Everyone’s gotten very lazy because of spell check. If you spell a place you’ve worked wrong or my name wrong, that’s bad.”
