I've finally updated my resume to reflect (I hope) how resumes should be in 2010. No more listing of jobs, duties, dates and contacts. Now it is "what utterly amazing things have you done in your positions that you also can do for me?" emphasis that employers want to see. For months I thought...I did my job...I did it well...but I did not save the world.
Ha! This past week I remembered a couple things I've done...then a couple more...then more....Hey, I really was good at what I did and with customer relations! I could not put them all on a resume. This has really been a boost to my psyche.
I applied for a job I find exciting that I know I would be passionate about. It would use my old (a bit rusty) sales skills, with an emphasis on customer relations + my love of people + the rush I've gotten in the past from a challenge.... I am excited.
Say prayers, send positive energy, and keep fingers crossed.
My psyche has been improving baby step by baby step the past few months. It began accelerating in May and now I'm wanting to "run"! I am now raring to get back into the world and show what I can do! Look out world..
