It's fine if you really do not want to be here, but it seems that so many
people are in the need of help with resume writing it would be wrong for us to ignore it.
Now's the time to get creative and we hope that we have sifted through
some of the more than 750,000 results that most search engines offer
to make it easier for you.
Our goal is to make this process as easy as possible for you to achieve a professional looking result.
First things first! There are rules.
Rule 1, NO complaining.
Rule 2, accept the fact that there is some reading involved.
(We've forgotten how many pages we've read to compile this information, invested the time and effort, see Rule 1.)
We suggest you take a quick look at some images of RESUME TEMPLATES.
We found that the images available were somewhat inspiring.
Let's not bother with the fussing about how much learning the computer requires. To create a resume you need a text program. If you're not sure of what program you have on your computer, you can check to see if you have Microsoft Word or you can download Open Office here.
Open Office is a free download that is a credible rival to MS Office. The site also has free resume templates available for you to download.
The following files can provide you with a simple start for preparing a resume. Read through them and you'll be ready to write your resume.
(We've made these single page documents so they are a quick read.)
The first file is entitled Building a Resume and it gives a few good suggestions for you to think about before you start putting your resume together.
A personal comment: While seeking employment it is important for you to consider things from the employer's perspective. It is not unusual for companies, nor schools, to search for concerns that they have about potential employees or students. I think the idea is best called, “The Grandmother Test.” Most employers are seeking information about drug and alcohol use. Let's face it, even though we might decide to tie-one-on, none of us are stupid to the fact that our grandmother would probably rather not see any of us in that condition.
Employers, just like your grandmother, do not have the desire to see inappropriate photos, nor do they care to read about inappropriate behavior. I do not have desire to put much thought into anyone's inappropriate behavior, so I'll leave it at that.
Social media allows for much to be said in very few words. Employers can and will judge your communication skills by comments you post. I set a standard for myself on this. I've always believed that if I had nerve enough to write it and send it, I needed to have nerve enough to claim it by putting my signature on it. The Grandmother Test holds true again.
Remember, “If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.” I should add that social media offers the opportunity for an employer to grade your spelling and grammar skills as well. You never took pride in showing the failing grade to your grandmother.
You can use the World Wide Web to your advantage, but don't forget that everybody else can too. There are plenty of sites that will offer more information about this subject. Do your own research about yourself before the potential employer calls. You can do that by searching for your name via any major search engine. Seeing yourself the way your future employer will might just save you some embarrassment.

It's a new day and no matter what we want to believe the World Wide Web is taking over. You can sign up for a free Twitter account and receive job notifications immediately.
Twitter was new to us too but, it's a handy service. Visit Twitter, sign up for an account, and then search for whatever you like. We searched for, "Jobs Atlanta" and found many listings.
Again, it's fine with us if you don't want to be visiting this page but, if you feel the need you can visit Feeding America to find local assistance.
If you're in the aggregate mining business,
you may check for job listings at Aggregates Research.
You can follow Aggregates Research on Twitter but, I could not get the job search at the site to work properly. Let me know if you have success and we can get our page updated.
Remember: PRACTICAL DREAMERS DO NOT QUIT.
Don't forget to keep your resume current.
Please note: We're just offering an old fashioned favor here. The is no commitment and no obligation by either party. Who knows, we might find something that is of interest to you!
You can do this!
You made it to this web page.
You're darn near a pro.
