Re-working it

Resume/cv writing is on the top of my list of things I love to do (NOT!).  I've finally worked my resume from a chronological into a functional resume.  It's taken me  3 hours and I'm tired of looking at it.  I know it reads choppy, but if I look at it any longer I won't see what it says at all.

I have to admit making this a functional resume certainly makes it easier to move whole sections up or down the page to highlight skill sets better for each position I'm applying for.  

I need to walk away for a bit.  When I get back and re-read my updates then maybe I can re-apply to some of these places that don't know they want me.

On a side note...As I was talking to a friend today I realized I am getting defensive about not having a job.   I've nothing to show for my efforts here in the last couple weeks.  It's as if my efforts need to catch up with me.  I didn't think I'm in a  hurry.  Unless I need another transmission, I should be good for another couple months.  I've got to drop the defensive bit.  I don't know where it comes from...maybe my own impatience. 


  1. Nothing wrong with taking a break from job hunting. Im sure the right one will come along in its perfect time.

  2. At least you're trying, S. You're out there doing, with courage and determination. I very much respect you.
    Success is inevitable for you. :)

  3. Not being obligated by the daily job is often highly underrated. No need to defend it. Reasons for it could be many, none of which are valid. Mind noise put there by the enemy, that's all.

  4. "mind noise" - spot on. Thanks all...
