Why Not

I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.

Changing My Ways

Some 25 years ago, I was required to take a class that taught ther art of resume writing, interviewing and follow up.  I am learning quickly that these methods are pretty dated.  Not having to really look for a job in the last 25 years or so, I always knew somebody that allowed me to progress through my career in transportation, I have a lot to learn.

All of the jobs that I have applied for have been on-line.  The only real contact you get is a responding e-mail thanking you for your application/resume.  The e-mail stats to please not contact us, if we feel that your application meets their needs, they will contact you.  So far, I have heard back from 1.

Today I am meeting with a gentleman who specializes in job hunting and career counsuling. I am pretty sure that I do not want to stay in the same area of transportation that I have spent the last 25 years.  I would not mind using my years of experience to help a private company who ships or an auditing firm looking for assistance with transportation companies.

I have enjoyed advocating for people with disabilities. I would not mind making that a career.  So many things to think about now.  I spent a couple of hours yesterday on just this topic, what do I want to do.

The gentleman has a copy of my resume and he has told me it can use a little work, I'm really not surprised.  I know that finding a job is probably going to be more of who you know, not necessarily what you know.  I was told that there are many social networking links to help with this.

So the journey picks up a bit of momentum today in realizing that the times, they are a changing.
