Well, hello there. It’s been awhile. Holey moley, does time pass by quickly. Seems like, just the other day, I was cheering on my youngest girl to take her first steps. And last night, we went to her 1st grade open house. Wow…
And I got a notice from a friend asking about SACC and whether if it was worth attending.
SACC stands for Service Academy Career Conference – the military and their acronyms. SACC is great. If you graduated from one of the service academies. Website is http://sacc-jobfair.com and it is truly worth checking out if you fit the bill.
But it got me thinking that I’ve neglected this little website of mine for a little too long. I’ve been fortunate to help a few folks along the way and I should be so fortunate to help a few more.
So, I’m back,,,
And I’ll do what I’ve tried to do in the past – which is being a clearinghouse for good info. A lighthouse to guide you away from the rocks.
By the way, time moves on but the fundamentals never change. The best guidelines for writing resumes and cover letters also never change much. Job fairs will always suck (some exceptions like SACC) and trolling through the help wanteds, print and online, can be most depressing.
Online job hunting…
Ah, what a double edge sword.
So much information, so much potential…
Trolling through Monster.com or careerbuilder.com can be mind-numbing in how hard it actually is in getting a job. But, boy what a wealth of information you have at your fingertips.
Because it’s all about research.
And here are some good sites for you to get started with:
- Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters – A website built around promoting a book of same name, but good info and articles nonetheless
- Resume Writing Resources and Templates – this one is mine (link to another page on my site)
- Cover Letter Resources and Tools – mine again
There’s a lot more. Chamber of Commerce, Toastmasters, local trade groups, job groups, alumni groups, etc. Over the next few months, I’ll be looking at and revisiting all those avenues.
Do you need one more yahoo telling you what to do. Maybe not. Or maybe you do,
Fact is – if you’re looking for a job – you really do need all the help you can get. And so I’ll be tossing in my 2 cents. In meantime, go ahead and check out some of those sites and some of what I’ve good in here.
Good luck and good seeing you again.
