Resume Scripting
Or...Make The Best Resume For The Job

So many people out there think that a one-size-fits-all resume will do the job.

Sorry.

Look, even though you might have eons of experience in a particular career or job category or even with a specific skill, it doesn't mean your resume is going to be on top of the heap for interviews.Check out the article here.

I've been swamped with teachers and educators wanting to update their resumes. Since I always want to give better customer service and let a few people slip through my fingers (as opposed to charging everybody for everything), I've put up this article, Link how to write an educator resume.

Peace.

If you would turn off your cynicism for just a moment...

I was outside with the two younger ones, watching them play in the sandbox. Actually, I was making sure the three-year-old doesn't bash the toddler's head in with a series of well-aimed plastic shovel strikes and said toddler wasn't eating sand.

I digress.

Comes now the five-year-old and wraps his arms around my neck, asking me to twirl him around. In moment of intense concentration trying to keep my dinner down (my ability to...

Hand me the fucking coin change first, then the paper money.

The coins sitting on top of the paper always falls off into that No Man's Chasm of $300 Car Oil Leaks between my car and the drive through window if I don't perform some kind of Hindu yoga master twist of my arm.

Christ!

Five Phrases That Probably Aren't A Good Idea For Your Safe Word Phrase When Engaging In S & M (Not that I really know, mind you, but I'm guessing here)

1. That will never fit in there.
2. Tops are wimps.
3. You call that a punch?
4. No need for lubrication
5. I'm allergic to latex.

If you don't know, www.imdb.com (Internet movie database) is a repository for information relating to movies and television. I periodically check out the news area (a dichotomy of my character since I tend to hate all things celebrity, but somehow love to read about them...mostly when they screw up).

Anyway, there is a story about a young actress chosen for, I believe, the 4th Harry Potter movie who is to be [from the book], Chinese.

Without re-summarizing my point, here is the email ...

As often with "funny stories" the humor is usually only funny to the those intimately involved...so you might not find this funny. Do I care? Not really. But here is an email dialogue between a co-worker (NJ) and me (NE).

Ok, I 've just sat through a few rounds of interviews for some new hires at my work, and I'm...non-plussed at best. What is it with you people and your ability to completely screw this part of the hiring process up so immeasurably? Do you lack all savvy? Have you no particular insight? Are you that dumb?

Maybe I'm being too hard on the Beav, as June Cleaver would say, but every time I get an awesome resume in my hand and he techs out on the phone, and then we talk in a real, live face-to-f...

You know, I'm not so conservative and out of touch with my inner 16-year-old that I don't take some pleasure in the whole Janet Jackson thing, but what really torques me is how damn whimpy everybody is about it. From Justin's vapid "clothing malfunction" line...yeah, I'll bet your hand had nothing to do with it either. Did an errant rhinestone catch on your cuff link, ChaChi? To ABC's insistance they had no foreknowledge. I just wish *somebody* who gave the green light would stand up and say...

One has to look at this recent Al Franken episode with a twinge of skepticism. Would someone of Franken's ability to pay a hefty assault settlement really put himself in a situation where he (potentially) physically harmed someone, and then repeatedly and publicly admit it?

Even the ill-tempered Sean Penn-types of the celebrity world don't comment on their wannabe bravado for fear of buying their bruised victims a summer home settlement. The real proof in the pudding will be if Al finally g...
