Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

So one of the changes I need to make is to find gainful employment.

And I'm just getting started with that. Need to write a resume and start getting it out there.

But damn, I worked for the same company for 3 decades. I don't even know what a good resume looks like. YIKES! Could use a hand in that area I reckon.

I need to think of something creative to fill that last big gap too. *grins*

Had a salad for dinner and spent a couple hours looking through listings on Monster. I'm about cross-eyed from that.

My Squeeze has given me a business card from one of her contracting companies that The Big Clam uses. Yeah I know, she works where I did. Whoopee doo!

I need to find something fairly quickly before the bills mount up too high.

Looking at inside sales, or procurement, even soft support or helpdesk type things. I should be able to come up with something in those areas. We'll see. Not sure if I should try for a job with SAP type stuff. It's been a while.

Having a drink (Makers Mark over ice), probably gonna hit Diablo 3 up for a while. Looks like I need to do some leveling up (Oh, the joy of grinding) before I take on Bilial. *laughs*

Good luck with that. If you have the right qualifications, which it sounds like you probably do, hopefully that will translate into a job. :)

Good luck with that! Are there any free (decent) services that can help you with your CV?

The word you're looking for is "sabbatical".

You should consider a professional service to find you a job. They provide resume construction and more. Basically, a head-hunter service. In the long run they are worth the cost.

Good luck with the search. Hopefully it wont take long. I was just in that search and it is tedious getting started again.

What? My Squeeze? Did I miss something here? I thought that was a ship-in-the-night thing, or not even that involved.

We're hanging out together a bit. Nothing serious.

I didn't know what 'My Squeeze' meant. Now, I do! :) :) :)

Sending good vibes on the job front. I could help with the resume thing, if you like.
