Well I did it! I sent my resume for a job, the first time in nearly 3 years. It was quite an endeavor. I havenâ€™t really looked at my resume in some time and preparing it with new duties and they revamping the cover letter and references took a bit longer than I thought. Mind you, I am constantly helping friends with improving their resumes so it wasnâ€™t that I was out of practice but rather I am far more critical when it comes to my own. I have to admit I would be surprised if I did hear back about the job. I mean it is exactly what I would want to doâ€¦head of special projects at a university but I am not entirely sure I am experienced enough.
So, cross your fingers and say a little prayerâ€¦perhaps I will be called for an interview. I usually do well on those and that would at least make this process of transition seem more real.
