Daily Job Search Update – 4-26-12

Today was another busy day. I did a little networking (oh how I hate that word), but I know it is necessary and there isn’t really any other way to describe what you are doing that sounds any better :-).

Then I worked on updating my General Administrator resume and got it pretty close to where I want it to be, it still needs some minor tweaking and a good double-check for grammar/spelling errors. If you would like to take a look here is the link to take a peek. If you have any comments or constructive criticisms – yes they are welcome.

Tomorrow, I want to work on my Professional Trainer resume, which interests me a lot more than general administration. I loved being in the classroom teaching and doing the challenging work of creating interesting lessons or presentation that the learners find useful. Being a trainer is something that I believe I would be great at and have a lot of experience in the classroom and providing training to adults. This will be a good direction to do a lot more research into.

Next week I have to go through and create two Federal Resumes (still deciding whether to just use USAJOBS or the new VA for Vets Career Center – I have one just about done in USAJOBS that I can copy or maybe I will go ahead and just put everything into the VA site? Still deciding on that one.

Either way I need to put together my general administrator federal resume and then really do a great job on creating one for the next Veteran’s Service Representative opening at Togus. Which is one of the things that I really would like to do and strongly believe that I would be very good at it.

There I have gone three steps ahead of what I wanted to do here, so I will have to back track a little to show how I reached those conclusions in a different post :-).

I also registered for the VA for Vets Virtual Career Fair – I am not sure how this will work, but it seems worth a try, and is something new and different for me.

I think that I have gotten a lot done today and yes I ran 6.2 miles and used two tanks of gas in my chainsaw to work on getting firewood cut up for the winter, so I am definitely getting back in shape.

Tomorrow I will update the Todo lists and work on my training resume, there is a lot of work to a job search, unless you are lucky or not trying too hard!  I can’t depend on luck, so I will have to make my own by hard work and be ready if/when that golden opportunity passes my way :-).
