Dat, there are lots of templates available online but some of them do weird stuff with formatting. If you can find a format you like and put one together in Word I'd be happy to help you with it. It's what I do. A word of caution, though, if you use a template instead of doing it "freehand" in Word, i frequently have a hell of a time undoing what the templates format. (They sometimes use tables and other stuff that's a b!tch to undo!)

Shoot me a pm with whatever you come up with and I'd be happy to help you out.

well... After two days and dozens of emails exchanged, I've got one truly outstanding look of resume done by Ken (AKA Speedo) and man...I do look good on that piece of paper. The layout is so well written and so "enjoyable" when reading them, all the importance parts are "jumps" right in front of you without looking for it, very nice and clean layout and very professional. I have never done any before and have been tried to do one but it looked horrible and ...horrible.

Ken, it's great pleasure of knowing you, you are one fine gentlemen who went far and beyond just to help a fellow boater that you are not even met yet, there's not enough words for me to tell you how I deeply am appreciated your help. Ken, I Thank You.

Dat.

Thanks for the kind words, Dat. I teach resume writing frequently, but have to admit I haven't actually composed one for quite a while. Yours wrote itself, given the very narrow scope of what you want to do and the incredible background you have. I think the resume is just a formality for you; I can't imagine anyone better qualified to do what you're looking for.

Keep me posted!

Dat and Speedo, Well done to you both. Things like this happen fairly often as a result of BoaterEd. It's good to read of these cases when they happen.

Yes Ed, you will find going forward here that there is a wealth of knowledge, experience and diversity in this forum coupled with the fact that a lot of us have been here over a decade.
We help each other and don't expect anything in return except the knowledge that the same help will be forthcoming when we need it.

No shot intended, it's who we are and have been since day one.

When we don't have problems to solve we take shots at each other with a grin.

Dat, I forgot to ask..you are a legal immigrant, aren't you? <<GG>>

Ed, as Bill and Gary said, when we're not taking shots at each other, we do try to help each other out and this is an incredibly versatile and knowledgeable group. I'm going to assume you just forgot to insert the "<G>" in your post.

I don't think I'm "talking out of school" by disclosing that Dat is a 30 year auto tech with 23 years with Nissan. When he last visited his mother in Viet Nam he noticed a lot of Nissans on the road and so he got in touch with the corporate training folks to see if his background might be put to good use there when he visits his mother. Not surprisingly, a 23-year Nissan Master Tech, who's a native Vietnamese speaker is a pretty attractive commodity. Dat gave me the details and I made it look pretty on paper. Happy Mothers' Day!

(It was 19 emails, but who's counting!)

My resume is on it way to Nissan Head Quarter, now is just wait and see.

As I told Ken, my present job is secured and as a "senior" at my place, they are not going to let me go unless I did some stupid thing that jeopardize the Dealer ship, I'm ain't going nowhere. There may be some issue with my new position(if I get it) though, on one hand, I can see my Mom more often, on the other hand, will be less on my wife and kids. I can see a mix feeling on my wife's face when I told her, but she said if that's what I want, go for it. I guess I'm just wait and see.

I think Dat is angling for two boating seasons if the truth were known.

Speedo: good job.

If I get something with formatting I want to remove I past it into notepad. That seems to strip most everything except text.

Nice to see all the help on this board.
i just came off a 3 month job search.
Very difficult.
Two things I learned.
1. You are never secure in your job.
2. ALWAYS keep networking.
Good Luck

Ain't that the truth! Even as a tenured faculty member with 26 years of seniority, my position was "eliminated" two years ago. I worked in student services, but fortunately I'm qualified to teach in a number of subjects so I was reassigned to full-time classroom teaching...and brought back to my "eliminated" position on a part-time basis for an additional 44 days a year. I rarely see students for my "old" job and now just handle administrivia in that position.

Full-time in the classroom has been an interesting ride!

Yes, Ken helped me stop smoking AND helped me with a resume years later which got me a part time job that I still have :)

I assume you're asking about the full-time teaching? (This is a bit of a zombie thread.) It's worked out fine. A little rough at the beginning because there's no textbook and I had to create all the curriculum, but I'm very comfortable with it now. Four sections of the same class and about 100 students each semester.

Still doing the administrivia from the old job. In fact it's spring break and I'm heading to the office to work on program review.

"College and Life Success" Or as I like to call it "Get a Job, Get a Life" It's part of the "First Year Experience Program" to boost retention and completion.
