Resume and Cover Letters

I have begun the long-dreaded and also very exciting job search. I sometimes think I would like to be a student forever, which is why I am heading towards being a professor, but other times a 9-5 job sounds absolutely lovely to me.

In the process of looking for jobs I have been updating my resume and writing cover letters, and I marvel at just how far I have come. I don't write this to brag or anything, it's just plain exciting! My resume looks very different from how it looked two years ago, even more different from three years ago, and monumentally different from when I started college almost seven (seven?!?) years ago. It's fun to look back and see all the things I've been doing and the skills I've gained, and it gives me added confidence that I will, in fact, be able to find a job (even though that often feels hopeless to me, and probably a lot of other people).

In light of the Olympics and watching people 5 or more years younger than I am being the best in the world at what they do, it's nice to know that, though I am no where near close to being the best in the world at anything except being Jenny, my skills are valuable and I am happy with them. And here's to many more years of (hopefully) adding lines to my resume and experiences to make those lines mean something.
