Play Resume Mad Libs with Me!

Hi!

 

It’s been three months since I posted, so I thought I’d pop in and say hello. Hello!

 

The reason I haven’t posted lately is because I have been diligently writing my 4th Step all summer. This shit is epic! I write every day until I am about to have a seizure and then call it a day. This strategy has never been recommended by anyone. Ever. But moderation and self-control never appealed to my delicate sensibilities, so why start now, right? Lily believes the hardest part is over and I choose to believe her. So now I can start looking for a job in earnest without the crazy emotional distraction of writing my life story. I have been blessed with some new peace in my soul, too!

 

As well as soul searching, I actually have done some job searching in these past few months. I applied for a handful of jobs, and spent a reasonable amount of time writing cover letters that attempt to make me stand out from the herd of unemployed chumps seeking the same position. When I send out my resume and intriguing cover letter, one of three things happens: 1- it floats out into the cosmos and I don’t get any sort of acknowledgement that anyone ever received it. 2 – I get an auto-reply that says they’re delighted I’m interested in working for their company, and if they’re interested, they’ll call me, don’t call them. Or 3 – the most infuriating – I get an auto-reply that says they’ve found someone who is a better fit for the job. How can this be? No human could possibly review my resume and ixnay me that fast. I conclude a very narrow-minded computer does the ixnaying. Here is where I need your help!

 

This narrow-minded computer is scanning resumes for key words and spitting out the ones that don’t match some percentage of their mystery criteria. I love words. I’m good at werds! Plus I literally copy chunks of werds from their job description and paste them appropriately in my resume, but alas, I inevitably get bupkis in return. I’m at a loss. So I’d like to ask for your help and creativity! Want to play a little Resume Mad Libs? I do! If you want to play – and I hope you do! – please fill in the blanks below and I’ll insert them to my cover letter and post them on Slushkitty…it’ll be fun!
