Things always look brighter in the morning, don't they? I woke up energized! Drank some coffee that my wonderful man made for me and enjoyed some breakfast, took the pup for a walk. With a clear head, I tackled my resume. I am not very confident in my resume, so I make changes, then change them again, and again. I guess it's ok, but it's very difficult to write what you think someone else wants to see :) IF ANYONE READING THIS IS AN EXPERT, PLEASE REVIEW MINE :) I WOULD BE SO GRATEFUL!!
Anyway, I made my changes, looked for some of the recruiters that I worked with a year ago and got my resume out there. Then one of the guys that I worked with just now took it and passed it on to 2 of his friends, 1 was VERY happy to receive it, so YIPPEE! Well, in total 13 resumes went out by the end of the day and since it was Friday before a holiday weekend, I didn't expect to hear back.
Surprise!! I did hear back from 2 recruiters. 1 had one job, 1 had FIVE!! Yep, 5!!!! So, I already have 6 choices to look at and some referrals from friends. Wow! I am sooooooooooo glad. And it was only ONE day of working on it. I know I won't get that kind of response everyday, but it's wonderful to kick start the job search in such a positive way.
Have a Happy HOPPY Easter!!
