I have been on the job hunt for the past couple weeks, as my position as the Face of FOX Toledo is pretty much over. For the past month I have helped acclimate the new Face, but today was my last time in the studio filming commercials and my last event is October 6th.
Ironically, there has been some recent discussion on pageant message boards about whether or not to include your pageant experience on a resume. This is a topic that comes up every now and again; this time someone was reporting that a former Miss State USA was not including her title on her medical school application due to the pageant’s bad press. I have included my Miss Ohio accomplishments on the resumes I’ve given out; it’s the very last line on the page under “Other Experience.”
Given the recent negativity around pageants, do you still or would you include you crown conquests on a professional resume? (Direct link)
* "yes, but only a few things"
I totally agree; the last line of my resume simply reads "Miss America Scholarship Program: Five time Miss Ohio contestants, Rosalie McAtee Interview Award and Top 10 Semifinalist."
If anyone who voted "NO" would be willing to leave a comment (which can be anonymous) explaining your stance I think that would be helpful to contestants and formers struggling with this difficult decision.
