Resume Review

After several requests I have decided to update my dating resume. Before I go and post it, I would like to know what types of things you think I should include in it. My previous experience at this was a funny story – but not an effective resume.

Reviewing my resume came to mind this week after my annual review. I have a hard time sitting with my boss, whom I respect and adore, taking so many compliments. Well, I think they are compliments – they seem like compliments. A simple “good job – here's some more money” would be fine with me. Instead I avoid eye contact, bite my lip, and nod my head a lot. Who am I to argue?

It turns out that I haven’t been working for this company as long as I thought. For some reason, we celebrated my 7th anniversary with the company last August, but the paperwork reveals I have only been working here for six years. I am reminded of my 23rd birthday when I honestly thought I was turning 22. It’s not like think about the topic every day.


  1. I completely forgot my 26th birthday. This may have had something to do with the birth of my daughter. I'm not sure...but it was truly a strange sensation when I finally realized that I was a year older than I'd been telling people.

  2. I do the same thing! I never remember how old I am. Also, thanks for the plane advice!

  3. Of course I am sure you've already covered these aspects in your resume (which I am really excited to see by the way), but here are some ideas I thought of. What kind of personality do you have, traits, etc.? What can you provide this person in a dating scenario? What are you looking for in a dating partner?

  4. You do realize I’m a guy? I say things like "stuff" and "thingy" alot.

  5. You forgot how old you were? Sometimes I feel like I have been at my job FOREVER instead of two and a half years.

  6. I think you need stats.
    Favorite ______
    Best _______


    That's so funny you forgot how old you were on your own birthday!! :)

  7. This is not Pauline I mean Paul's
