Résumé Creed

ThisisMyResumeThis is my résumé. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

My résumé is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

My résumé, without me, is useless. Without my résumé, I am useless. I must use it to write my future true. I must write truer than the other job seekers who are trying to take the open jobs. I must get a job before they do. I will…

My résumé and I know that what counts in the job search is not the number of résumés we write, the noise of our interview, nor the references we have. We know that it is the job offers that count. We will get job offers…

My résumé is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, and its required attachments for each job opening. I will keep my résumé clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will…

I swear this creed. My résumé and I are the defenders of my future. We are the masters of my destiny. We are the saviors of my financial future.

So be it, until employment is secured, and there is no uncertainty, but my final retirement!
