Alhamdulillah, nearly four years down the line the job-hopping stopped, but unfortunately, so has my resume writing - and I feel the skills needed in composing the most basic document are also deteriorating quickly.
I just handed over my resumes to the two sisters without much advice as to how to write or even improve theirs. It's a shame and I feel bad. I should find the time to do so, because there is no one single way to represent each and every unique person with different qualifications, skills and interests on a single piece of paper.
Anyway, luckily there are mountains and valleys worth of templates and free softwares to do the nitty-gritty self-marketing for job-hunters nowadays. So it does make life a lot more easier, though I would still emphasise on the uniqueness of each individual.
In the end, it really is more than just copying off someone else's employment and education history. I remember a friend who customised one resume per application, just to be safe and to "speak" directly to this potential employer. Me thinks he had OCD. But it certainly worked out well for him.
Well, much like resumes are "kept-in-view," this post is a self-reminder to elaborate a little more on writing resumes. As it can also turn into writing opportunities for some writers. Job-hopping experience is not necessarily needed.
