We had more career "training" this week. I use the quotes around training, because this session was more about how to put together your resume. Truth be told, I did enjoy it. Although to me resume writing is a big PITA. I mean, they're very subjective, don't you think? And in this case, we received the instructors opinion of how resumes should be written. I think the trainers just go with the popular flow as it were. Whatever the resume du jour is, that's the method taught.
The vendor the company solicited I had never heard of. But after doing some research, they don't seem to be some gimmicky place. And after the training I felt pretty good about my opinion of them.
The half-day class went along at a nice pace. Some redundant information I had already infused in my resume. Still, it was decent guidance. Of most interest to me that I learned was a change to my summary. A more general yet non-my company way of wording my position. I changed that part of my resume right away. After a few more tweaks, and some back and forth changing, I have a pretty nice version to share with prospective employers.
I'm feeling pretty good today. Perhaps it because Spring has finally arrived. Or perhaps we're getting closer to our supposed cut-off day. I'll be happy if I can stay with the company, but a part of me wouldn't mind being off for the summer and enjoying some pool time. ; )
