Otakatt Posted September 13, 2010 Report Share Posted September 13, 2010 Having typed up a resume for someone and having a friend help with editing it I've been talking with them a bit about... well... resumes. Stuff like that. As a terrible person who has never had a real job or made a real resume, I try to at least absorb some knowledge on how to go about making one. When you haven't had a real job, putting anything you can on a resume seems important. I asked them if it'd be viable to put something on one, like the fact I helped with some art on the OCR FF5 album, and was told experience is experience, so that wouldn't be a bad idea. However! They also went on to tell me I'd have to be careful who to submit that to, because if more professional people saw "The Otaku" listed as the one credited, they might be pretty "Ehn" about it. And before anyone says anything, yes, I know The Otaku is a horrible name. I've been teased about it on VGMix. I've been teased about it the other day when a friend saw that. While I'm not going to be going for anything professional any time soon, if ever, I wonder if this is something I should nip in the bud? Is "The Otaku" going to come back to haunt me later? It also makes me nervous because I have various cat related names attached to my DeviantArt account, as well as my email address. And my YouTube... But it's more the DA account that worries me. I'm really a personal person to the point of paranoia, so I keep my real name pretty guarded. I'm trying to get over that though, and have been known to out my first initial, middle initial, and last name for art related purposes, at least. Still, The Otaku, The Catlady... it's still there. I figure this is a good place to ask about that, considering the various musicians here that go by pseudonyms and even attach them to their work. Successful musicians at that! Zircon comes to mind, although zircon is a tasteful name. I have to wonder what would have happened if he was head of SirVegetaStudios. Are pseudonyms generally frowned upon? Are they okay if tasteful? Has anyone had first hand experience with terrible online names biting them in the butt? Any insight about this from anyone would be greatly appreciated!
