I think many of us are afraid of writing our resumes or even worse, interviewing for a job, because we think that we’re not worthy of it based on our past mistakes. You never know where that fear will take you. I’ve been working on my own resume for years, and I’ve been able to create a resume that is the envy of my fellow professors.
I find it interesting that people have so much fear when it comes to writing resumes. I mean, what if your resume is on a website that is out of date or that is just plain wrong? I can’t think of another situation where being afraid of writing your resume is so concerning. In fact, I think it makes you more likely to do something about it if you’re afraid.
So, you can see, there is not a single resume that I have that I hate, and I would hope that most people with fear of resumes do not have fear of their resumes. Fear of a resume can make you more careful with your resume, it can make you a better writer, and it can make you more likely to actually do something about it.
Resume writing can make you a better writer, but in this case it can make you a lot more likely to go out of your way to do something about it, which is exactly what we have here. One day my former teacher will no longer be able to come up with a resume that is any good, because she has written one that is completely unusable. (Not that it’s a bad resume. Just that it’s not usable.
She actually says she wants to use it as a resume because she doesn’t have the time to write the same thing over and over. She also says she doesn’t think anyone will ever need a resume she wrote, because she isn’t a writer, but she is writing it.
It’s not a bad resume, but it is NOT a resume you will ever need. As a former teacher, you don’t really need to write an entire resume. However, most of us have learned the hard way that our resume is the only thing that matters when applying for jobs. After you have made it through all the steps, it is the only thing that you need to prove that you care enough to apply for a job.
A resume is a piece of paper that you fill out with your resume. However, it is the only thing that you will ever need to prove to the hiring manager that you are intelligent, that you can do the job, and that you are capable of doing it at a given level.
Here is the rub. If you have a resume that has been written by several different people, you are not good at writing a resume. That is especially true if you have just started out as an intern and not an experienced writer. The reason is you don’t know the things that the hiring manager is looking for in a job applicant.
The hiring manager will only be interested in things they are a professional at. He will not be interested in someone that doesnt have a resume, especially because a resume is just a list of things they have done, and it doesnt actually demonstrate that you have done them all. So it is important that you give the hiring manager something that they can use to evaluate you.
