I have never been good at writing a resume. Since I’m not one to really talk myself up to others, it’s hard for me to write about how good I am. I know what I’m capable of and the knowledge that I bring to the table, but I never know quite how to write that down on paper.
Lately I’ve really been frustrated at work. Since my boss left in December and the new one arrived in March, I’ve had issues. My new boss is almost the polar opposite of my old boss, so that has given me some problems. I LOVED working for my old boss. She and I got along really well because we were similar in many ways. Needless to say, the new boss is not on the same wavelength as I am most of the time. She gets along fabulously with my coworker, which is enough to make me sick since I feel that his skills are less than adequate. He’s been there for four years and yet he calls up a woman in engineering to ask her what the cost of a part should be. That’s not her job, that’s his! But I won’t go off on that rant right now.
Does posting a resume online work? It’s tough enough to find a job nowadays, but I would really like to find one similar to mine. I love what I do, I just don’t like the people that I have to work with. Besides, I might be moving to another area in the somewhat near future, so I would like to find a job closer to where I will be living. I don’t really want to have a 50 minute commute each way.
Any tips or hints on resume writing? Any and all suggestions will be helpful. Thanks! 🙂
