A change up

I’ve been sending resumes out like it’s nobody’s business lately. For the last 3 weeks I have applied to no less than 3 jobs every day. What have I got back?


So, it’s time to knuckle down and do a fall back. One of those things you keep behind the glass so you can break it in case of emergency. That one set of skills that you can pull out at a moments notice and do for money. Some of you might be able to answer phones like there is no tomorrow. Or perhaps be quite adept at playing the Pan Flute. Whatever, every one of you has a set like this.

So do I.

Desparate times call for desparate measures. I just finished doing a 2nd resume.

That I will be sending to restaurants.

I know what you are saying/thinking. But for reals, I have more restaurant experience that you know. Almost 15 years, most of it in management. Include my training ability and POS knowledge, and I think I’m somewhat of a catch.

Putting the polish on it now, then I need to do up a cover letter explaining my 10 absense from the field. Then, out it goes to at least 2 companies today. Possibly more over the weekend.

I just hope I won’t have to start until after MTTS. What a serious pain that would be.

  1. Hey, it’s best to leverage every talent you have. Even if it’s short-lived it’s still income. And from your previous posts I can tell you can cook. Good luck!
