I remember commenting to someone somewhere that this goal will never be complete until I am working in a job I love.
And I do love the work I am doing nine months in and feel settled .. but that doesn’t mean I am not thinking of the possibilities which could lay ahead.
I have brought my CV up to date again to sit peacefully resting until an opportunity presents itself for me to be impulsively decisive with an organised flourish.
This was one of the very first goals I added when I joined 43t .. My CV has come so far .. just like me. 4 months ago
I actually spent some time in updating the content and the layout to update my CV because I was seriously thinking of going to graduate school this year and I needed the CV for application and with the help of my hubsy it ended up pretty neat. I can say that it is important that I did it to see where I am and work hard/focus in the direction I am headed.I also realized that I should wait for at least a year before I think of applying for new jobs for my CV to be really powerful and have a serious impact on my options and offers. 8 months ago
How I did it: I just made the time for it and decided I won't get up till I finish updating my CV and sending it to some companies I'd like to work there.

After transferring from the PC to the laptop (I’ve yet to work out how to virtually move my documents) I found an older CV in my email to bring up to date. 20 months ago
I’ve had a fab year of courses and finishing stuff, so the ol’ CV should look reasonably impressive, methinks! It’s not exactly ‘zingy’, but a bit of a rejiggle to include my web-type stuff and I’ll see what it can hook, I guess?! 21 months ago
How I did it: My cv was fairly up to date as I've been in my current job for a long time, so I just needed to update my responsibilities.

Last week i was given a new contract which is basically a get out clause because the company is running at a loss .. i’ve known for a while now that the people behind this company seem very good at dissolving companies and starting anew so i’ve never felt secure, in fact they still owe me five weeks pay from when i first started .. i am getting paid now week to week but its still iffy .. trouble is they are not a bad lot, they seem to be struggling to make a new company work, the experience for me is a bonus and i do enjoy the work .. so i’m in a dilemma, do i cut my losses and find something else or ..
Quite by chance i came across two weekend jobs and thought okay compromise i updated my CV and applied .. of course it would mean i could end up working seven days a week but at the same time if this company does go out of business i don’t want to end up doing nothing. 2 years ago
