Over the past few months, I’ve been refining my thoughts about my new career path. As I’ve become clearer about what I’m seeking and what I have to offer, it’s become more important to frame my résumé properly.
I find this unusually difficult. I’d much rather tell the world about how great YOU are, and exactly what qualities, skills, and experiences make YOU the perfect candidate. Meanwhile, I have trouble doing justice to myself.
However, I have now drafted a new résumé, with a little help from my friends!
Here it is. (Please click on this link to see it.)
I’ve had some really valuable assistance from six very kind people:
- Rodney Byrd from TSNE MissionWorks
- David Leonard from Boston Public Library
- Gordon Gottlieb from Technical Development Corporation
- John McNutt from University of Delaware School of Public Policy and Administration
- Kathleen Malin from Rhode Island Foundation
- Stephanie Guidry from Boston Foundation
I thank them wholeheartedly, and I now invite you to critique this new version. Please feel free to email me directly or post your critique in the comments section.
