How to Show My Best Self in a Resume
Posted 21 October 2008 - 04:02 PM
I was browsing through the Chit Chat corner and saw all types of threads on here. Hopefully you all can help me out a little bit here. I think that the layout of my resume is pretty good (or so I've told by different HR managers) but I need to do something and do it quickly to get a new job.
Here is my background in a nutshell: 4 year BS degree from Iowa State University in Exercise Science
study abroad programs in South Korea and Tasmania, AU
Personal Trainer for the last almost 3.5 years
at home business sales and marketing experience
real estate hostess (6 years ago), basically an admin asst/leasing asst. type position but only for 3 months during college
So i am looking for almost anything. I just want to get my foot in the door for future advancement opportunities. I would like to start either as an admin asst. or HR asst. Ultimately i think it would be amazing if i could end up with an international company and be able to travel internationally (i prefer some countries over others but that's the beside the point right now).
I check careerbuilder and monster everyday, i have 4 temp agencies working for me right now (all active, the others are a bunch of duds), and i talk to friends to see if they know of any open positions. I know the job market isn't exactly booming right now but I NEED to find something. Does anyone have any ideas of what else I can/should be doing to look for a job? Personality wise I am very marketable because I'm professional, intelligent, hard working, motivated, and willing to start at the bottom. I don't even know what kinds of positions are out there that maybe i'd love doing. Maybe a pricing analyst? who knows, but i'm open to all suggestions!
Thanks girls (and guys)!

I think you are doing the right things. Have you tried posting your resume on sites like Monster and other career sites that allow you to post? FI did this last year and it really worked - he had companies calling him which was nice..
Good Luck! You have great qualifications so you will find something quickly!
