Why We Can't Stress Highlighting Your Acheivements Enough in Resume

Your resume's job is to spread the word about what you can do and how well you can do it. In many cases it's your only chance to get an interview for a job and therefore in order to give you a competitive edge, it should represent the best version of you and as such, it should be riddled with your achievements.…

Moving from Wordpress.com to Wordpress.org

A few months ago I made the move from a wordpress.com website to a wordpress.org website. After three years of attending WordPress meet-ups, the members of the meet-up said I was probably the most prepared person ever to do this switch. While it wasn’t a seamless transition, it was relatively easy.

WordPress.com is great for beginners who are afraid of technology and doing something to “break” their website. That was me. No coding is necessary. You pick a theme and a…

Why Your One-Size-Fits-All Resume Isn't Getting You Noticed

When applying for a job vacancy, a resume should reflect the needs and wants of the position you are applying for. A one-size-fits-all resume is a general resume and can sometimes be vague. If you are doing your job hunt with such kind of resume, you are wasting your time and energy. It’s recommended that you don’t send a general resume in a specific job listing since employers are looking for someone who can take a specific role. For example, if you are applying for the position of a…

..mill town ..

wrap the house around you, then                            leave it.   out into the only world you know.   anxiety  comes with           the unfamiliar.                                         they call down the chimney.

this is a mill town.

Good Evening!

Watch them…your words. Pay more attention to the things that come out of your mouth. What you might think is funny could be downright hurtful to someone else. What you might view as an off-the-cuff remark might be devastating to somebody who overheard it.

Words have such power. Words can make or break a…

What's the Big Deal About Sports?

I am American, born and raised in this country, and yet I am not a sports fan. Some of you will find this hard to believe and are already writing letters to the government, asking for my citizenship to be revoked.

And yet I feel about sports the way that Dorothy Parker felt about skiing: "Skiing is very difficult and none of my business." Big sports is none of my business.

So you can pretty much imagine how I felt when I learned that the football coach at my university was…

In Search of my Lost Motivation

New Year’s has come and gone and with it went my motivation. It didn’t help that I came down with some type of intestinal bug the night of January 2, robbing me of two days of productivity. The only benefit of such a bug is that it can help you shed some of those holiday pounds, but even that…

Last fall I won the writing contest for The Magic of Memoir. This was a first time I entered a writing contest and a first win for anything that had to do with my writing.

Good Evening!

Ya gotta keep doin’ it…whatever it is- if you want to be successful at it.
