Hey gang, first post here, love the site.
I’ve recently completed a bootcamp from Career Foundry and am now starting to reach out to employers. Reading threads here or biographies from many employed designers, many switched from graphic design backgrounds. I instead have almost 20 years experience in a creative but less portfolio-friendly industry, event production.
Any tips on finding the balance between typically short cover letters and writing a full page biography? I like to think that my story gives me a unique perspective on user-centric design and research, but how much sharing is too much in a written introduction?
