Updating the Resume
I’ve been reading so much lately about people upset/unhappy with their jobs and the sneaky things bosses like to do in an effort to get you quit so they don’t have to pay you Unemployment Compensation. I find I am probably in that position. So I thought it best to start updating my resume today. Not just for my use but on the ‘job sites’ too. I think it’s time to see what’s out there. So, be a dear, and have a little look-see. Tell me what you think?
