For the first time in my short career, it's been an entire year since I've updated my resume! This also means it's been nearly a year since I started my new job.
So, I decided to redesign my resume and make it match my blog... a little bit of personal branding.
This resume marks some pretty serious milestones for me:
- Lasting a year in a job for the first time since college. Due to the economy and misguided career choices, I wasn't able to stay in my first few jobs out of college for more than 10 months.
- Being able to take internships off my resume for the first time. After my first job, I wound up doing a complete 180 in my career and took an amazing internship to jumpstart that new career. I'm grateful for that opportunity but happy that that part of my career is no longer represented on my resume.
- Feeling truly happy and confident in my career. I do not have an easy job, nor do I have a job that I've mastered. For me, this is perfect. I thrive in situations where I can learn and grow and experiment and this is the first job where I've truly had all those opportunities.
I'm also going to use this as an opportunity to create a Living Resume board on Pinterest to document some of the fun things I've done in my career.
