It's time to get my not so lovely resume out of storage, spiff it up a bit, and bombard all the services with a gazillion copies.
Now, I have a problem. As stated before my resume is not so lovely. Gaping gaps between *real* jobs. Gaping gaps between stints at two different colleges. Gaping gaps between three stints at the same college.
I can make the work area look ok. But the education area is a mess.
Would it be ok just to give generals? Such and such college 2 years. Such and such college 1 year. Expected graduation 12-20-01. Or do I need to give specifics on which years I spent where?
Also, does grade point average really matter? Do you look at that? Mine is honestly nothing to be ashamed of, just didn't know if real world people actually took that into consideration.
And pictures. I see a lot of people using pictures in their web resumes. Is this a good thing?
And when you submit an online resume most of the time you have to cut and paste, cannot use word format. Is is ok to simply use spacing to separate the sections of your resume in this case?
... Do you people really look at that part?
Seeking to find fulfillment in my quest to provide even better purchasing decision information.
Or should I just say - I want a damn job!
