I always try to be realistic. Even though everyone claim: choose the job you want, choose the job you like etc., and repeat it like mantra or something, every now and then a lot of people are wondering how to make resume for the job they don’t like too much but which is the only choice that will enable them to get what they need in the upcoming period of time.
I know, some of you will say that there always is a choice and I will agree on that one. There is always a choice. You don’t ever have to do a job you hate, but sometimes you’ll just have to do the job you simply don’t like in order to provide necessary money for you and maybe your family. That is just the fact. And then rises our headline question, how to make resume for such job.
Ok, what does that actually mean? Well, every resume incorporates the part where you have to talk about your mission, your final goal or what you are trying to accomplish with the job you are applying for. And the fact is that the only mission of yours is to earn a decent amount of money by doing something that suits you the most right now. If that is the fact, use it to your advantage.
But, before you start typing your resume for the job you don’t like , answer the following three questions to yourself and try to be absolutely realistic and honest:
How long do you intend to do this job, a month, six months, year, a couple of years or longer?
Are you interested in anything else then money?
How good are you really in this job, i.e. do you have strong references or not?
After answering to those three questions refer to my next post about how to make resume.
