Nobody I Work With Reads This, Right?

I need to quit. Like I’ve never needed anything before in my life.

Boyfriend keeps telling me to tough it out until I find something else, but I’m very tempted to see if I can go back on unemployment. He thinks that’s crazy and goes against the reasons I took the job in the first place. I view it differently: things change. Including me.

I met with a professional resume writer last week, because my resume needs to change, and although I know how I would like it to look, I can’t get there alone. I just read what she came up with, and I’m furious. It is not the layout I wanted, which was the whole reason I wanted to change my resume. The ‘professional’ highlighted my work history before my relevant experience, which I believe to be the reason my old resume doesn’t work effectively. Problem number two: it’s two friggin’ pages long (with the best parts – the relevant experiance – lost on page two.) It should be consolidated by eliminating so much of the white space, and the entire ‘objective’ section (it is an out of date concept) Problem number three: it lacks consistency, for example the bullet points in different sections don’t line up. Oh, and she misspelled my name.

Blah, blah, blah

I haven’t written much lately because I’ve been feeling very uninspired, both about writing and life in general. So, I’ll throw it out to you: What’s new? OR What do you want to hear about?
