“New directions...”


Description from J Yee smart chick: I just finished my temp assignment this Friday, enjoyed being there - connected with a woman who helped look over my resume and gave me great advice on formatting for max effectiveness -

Just got a notice about the big job application that I submitted recently - they're not going to interview me

And just recently ended our consulting project with our client, since the organization's in too much flux for us to be effective...

So, I'm working to revise my resume and make it much more readable - listing responsibilities as bullet items, not narrative paragraphs, changing to a much cleaner font for ease of reading...

And continuing to converse with the Creator and my ancestors - where to next in life - and my wish, that I can attract and create the conditions I want - to both do work that is meaningful, and be able to sustain myself effectively - I have a good foundation of sources of income that supports all of my needs - basic, and long term ones for further growth and development...

    Thank you Alice – trying to keep focused on what I can do to keep positive thoughts – and what I can possibly do to improve my searching for work with the right kinds of conditions – including good company org culture – people’s roles and responsibilities/expectations are clear, there’s support for meeting those expectations… support for continued professional development, giving back to communities… learning is valued…
    not just adequate salary and enough hours total to bring in decent income…

    I just ordered the blue line tube beads. I hope to get them tomorrow, hope they are gorgeous. Anyway try to keep your resume to one or two pages at the most. Sometime certain words stand out also especially if a computer is “reading” it. Try to figure what they may be. Don’t be afraid to take a job that could be the “stepping stone” to get you where you want to go.

    Sometimes it is good to take a step back and meditate to those past and your creator. It may yield to answers and lead you to a path you would not have thought of taking.

    Many thanks Mary S, Karen, Dawn and Bella – sure appreciate all the support –

    Dawn, my draft revised resume’s still too long at present, will have to pare down more; and yes, am looking for some work that will be “stepping stone” – do you mean ones that although might not be “obvious”, would help me build (or rebuild) my resume?
    – I could use more work that would refresh and update professional skills – not just computer program use, but also other skills I haven’t used in the last year and a half of finishing grad school…
