What job should I pursue?
I am currently seeking to move into a position that would require a resume and be more of a career rather than just a job..... THE DETAILS: My work History: -DJ -Magician's Assitant -Cashier , Several Retail Stores -Administrative assistant , Century21 -Supervisor , Walgreens -Sales , Petland Basically I have a wide variety of experience.... Problem is...the longest jobs I have stayed with were DJ and Magician's Assitant...(for 1 year and a year and a half respectively) ...And those aren't too impressive on a resume. The others I MORE than excelled at but basically found them to be "up my alley" in terms of what I was doing but not up to par when it came to actually feeling that my talents were being put to good use. Example: Within 1 month of working with Century 21 I completely redesigned their marketing materials and streamlined the procedures within the office....... In 1 month in the supervisory position with Walgreens, I came up with ways to motivate and restore enthusiasm amongst my team. I also, again, streamlined procedures for my department making daily tasks easier and faster to complete. In one WEEK working in the sales position, I had already outsold every other associate on the team. I had several repeat customers that asked for me specifically and also enhanced the knowledge of the other employees and became the "go-to girl" when people had a question or needed help with just about anything. I have a knack for coming up with my own ways to work from home but haven't had the support needed to follow through due to family and financial restrictions. I am creative and innovative and feel I was born to be a leader but on paper...I LOOK TERRIBLE.....All petty retail experience...no diploma and all but two of my jobs have been short lived (6 months or less)...granted they were because of moving and not for disciplinary reasons but it still looks bad.... **** How could I word a resume in order to get the point across that I HAVE what it takes to succeed? AND *********Where should I apply?

Have you thought about looking into classes for something that interests you? I'm currently taking classes online because my husband is in the military and I didn't want to transfer from the college I was at and they offered what I needed online. I was also involved in a home business at one time. I can give you more... More
