But if I’m going to be doing a job interview, I probably should do it now. 2 months ago

Did some great edits this weekend and finally feeling good about how my resume is looking. Still needs a little tweaking but its much improved. 10 months ago
I realize it’s been 15 years since I updated my resume. I haven’t applied for a job in that long. While the job I am applying for this coming week doesn’t require a resume, I think having a current resume is important anyway.
So, I have purchased Resume maker, to make my life easier. I already used it to write a cover letter, so the rest should be easy, right? 15 months ago
Decided to apply for a part time job with the Campus Recreation. I really enjoy working for the Campus Police Department but since I’m only an extra, I can’t get any more hours. It doesn’t help that I’m the only one there that doesn’t have someone related to me on the force. But hopefully everything goes well during the meeting. After which means that I will hand in my cover letter, resume, and application. Which explains this entry post. Once I get back to campus I’ll visit the Career Center to go over my resume before my meeting.
This is all is getting a bit overwhelming, the idea of having two part time jobs along with being a full time student and the responsibilities I have with different clubs and RSOs. ughh..

This is one of those depression/anxiety WALL OF OVERWHELMING tasks every time I look at it. Time to break it down into ridiculously small chunks.

I’m working on this now. It’s annoying because I have to make different versions of it for different jobs I’m interested in. I’m pretty much a resume expert by now because of all of my job searching so you’d think I would be used to it! 18 months ago
Since I didn’t really have a resume and hadn’t had one in – well except my first job out of school – I now have one that I’ve sent out to about 11 places.
Looking it over now I see I made some major and minor errors and just an overall feeling of dread. Some certifications I got wrong and dates were shaky – mostly because I have a lot of those things in my storage locker (cleaning that out is another one of my 43 things). But it is updated and only needs tweaking now. Creating it was what really took the life out of me. That took a good several days not just creating it but of looking up sample resumes and advice over the web.
If I get any interviews from these, I may be problematic on a couple of fronts. The least of which is after gaining my unemployment 15 pounds I don’t fit into any decent clothes anymore! 18 months ago
