Creating a new résumé, among other things…

So, I know I haven’t posted in a while because I have been distracted with other things, mainly my career.

I have been keeping up with NROLFW, yoga, and my cardio. Honestly my diet has been crap, and I need to refocus on it.

Back to my career. I have started volunteering at a local youth centre. Next week, I start volunteering at a local elementary school. Also, in the coming months, I am going to facilitate some workshops as a volunteer. I plan on sharing with you how the workshops go.

I saw an employment specialist last week, and she torn my résumé and cover letter apart. I was shocked, both my résumé and cover letter had been edited by a staff member from the Lakehead University student success centre, and a friend who is a grammar Nazi (she admits to being one). So, I have been working on making my résumé and cover letter stand out.

I have also signed up for a portfolio workshop, and French language training. So, my days and evenings are starting to look a little more complete, I just need a job and some friends to round it all out. I’m hoping I will make friends in my new local area with all of my new activities. br />
