Anyone good at writing resumes? I need a good objective, as I'm updating my resume to look for teaching jobs back home. Right now I'm doing the resume to send to Christian schools, and I'll do another one later to send to public schools. I need some help though.

There's one private school I'm filling out the application for, and you have to list the books you've read in the last twelve months and discuss which impacted you the most. I cannot even remember all the books I've read in the last twelve months, and I have the sneaking suspicion they might not believe me if I list all I can remember. But whatever.

And I need to list a few personal references on this application. It's one of those times where I'm at a total loss....and for professional references, I don't have ANY contact information from the school I interned at in Tel Aviv, so that looks bad. Oy. I hate writing resumes.

Kylie and I played cards for almost four hours tonight. That might be pathetic. I'm undecided.

I had a "this is why I love teaching" moment today...actually a few of them. But it's almost 3 AM, and I can't believe I'm still awake, so I'm not going to tell you about them now. I will later though, I promise. Night.

I know I'm not a professor, but I did get you started on the ropes so you are more than welcome to use me as a reference if you need to do any office work or whatever. Have fun resumeing...

After working in an office at BCF where I had to help folks with their resume, my advice is much like what you would expect to hear anywhere else. Keep it thorough and accurate, yet as simple as possible. Don't use funky fonts or colors. Also, don't use statements like, "I used to be a lost joker..." :) Not that I think you would do any of that stuff, but I did encounter all of it at one time or another and it was pretty funny.

^ Really? Scary. Simple is difficult for me. If you haven't noticed, I'm wordy. :)
