2016-03-22: This site is being moved to my main site at https://kevininscoe.com/wiki as part of a consolidation to one domain.


I am migrating my 8 year old previous "Central Florida Computer Jobs Resource" page (located at http://ke3vin.org/jobs/) to be more up to date, add some of others wisdom (and some of my own) to the subject.

Your resume is about your future, not your past.

"Resumes are not a confessional; choose what you write so it supports your current job objective. Fill resume with achievement statements, not “boring job description statements. Never include tasks you don’t want to repeat in your new job."

Mr. Reece Cordova,
Hiring Manager
Goldenrod Glassware, Inc.
1564 Goldenrod Blvd.
Any Town, USA 99999

Dear Mr. Cordova:

From your posting on JobBankUSA.com, I'm aware that you're looking for an experienced warm-in worker. This is a job I am qualified for and interested in pursuing since I've had three years of experience reheating blown or pressed glassware in a furnace in order to fire-polish glassware and make it malleable prior to further processing.

I believe an in-person meeting would be a great way to talk over the expectations you may have for the warm-in workers you hire. If you'd like to get together, please call me at 897-678-5656 and give me a time and date that is convenient for you. I look forward to your reply.

Thank you for reading my cover letter and considering me to fill this opening.

Sincerely,

Gilbert Samuelson

Personal brands:

I myself don't care for that term but that's the buzz word used today. In short be careful how you promote and conduct yourself at all times even when your not looking because the person you may be rude to today may be your next employer tomorrow.
