Early Research About Resumé

I was cleaning some of my stuff (I’m not yet done) such as sketches, studies, etc and I found this print out I have when I was a fresh graduate (I think). This was probably around 2003-2004. It made me laugh...then worried if it was the truth or not back then. So far though, some of them are true.

I wasn't able to jot down where I got it from. Just for the record, this is not mine and I'm sharing it you for laughs. Enjoy!

It’s Monday and we all know that! You can feel it in your brain...you’re a little tired...a little flustered...and a little annoyed that you have to wake up and get going on your weekday routine...here’s a little inspiration on a Monday morning...

There’s nothing to fear --- you’re as good as the best, as strong as the mightiest, too. You can win in every battle or test; for the there’s no one just like you. There’s only one you in the world today: So nobody else, you see, can do your work in as fine a way: You’re the only you there’ll be!

So face the world, and all life is yours to conquer and love and live: And you’ll find the happiness that endures in just the measure you give; there’s nothing too good for you to possess, nor heights where you cannot go: Your power is more than belief or guess --- It is something you have to know.

There’s nothing to fear --- you can and you will. For you are the invincible you. Set your foot on the highest hill ---There’s nothing you cannot do.

Now you go...and you know...make today the best...until tomorrow...a great Monday...


WHAT NOT TO PUT ON YOUR RESUMÉ

REASONS FOR LEAVING THE LAST JOB:

» The company made me a scapegoat – just like my three previous employers.


JOB RESPONSIBILITIES:

» I was proud to win the Gregg Typing Award.


SPECIAL REQUESTS & JOB OBJECTIVES:
» Please call me after 5:30 because I am self-employed and my employer does not know I am looking for another job.
