DAY TWO - JUNE 5, 2009
Got some better work to apply to this time, and I've made big progress on my resume. I stumbled a bit at one point-this resume ebook I'm using recommended I define my accomplishments in terms of challenge/action/results. After I realize that a lot of my freelance assignments could fit that format, I was able to chug ahead. I'm seeing an "editor" type of position arise from what I've got so far on my resume, though I'm thinking of slipping in straight feature writing skills to cover that base.
Mom mentioned last night that she was heading over to FCCJ on Monday or Tuesday, since she has to go back to school soon anyway. So I'm going with her on that. Dunno if they're closed on Saturdays, but I plan to call tomorrow and ask if I can get a technical certificate in programming before kicking up to the main Assosciate's Degree in Information Technology. Would it be possible to score a job even while working on the assosciate's? I guess so, as long as I can prove it. We'll see.
Nobody was in again when I called the high school about those driving classes. Tomorrow I'm going to be a bit more forward and find out where the hell the person in charge of that is so I can sign up and get on with it.
Anyway, beyond that, tomorrow I work on my resume some more and add pages to my blog to show that I'm offering services as well. I know people may not be willing to buy from a site called Giant Robot Invasion, but I don't have the time or money to get another site now, so pffft, I'll try anyway.
