It’s OK to move this to MPSIMS if it belongs there. Wherever you want, mods.
If you know what companies I work for/am applying to, which might not be hard to figure out based on this information if you’re in the industry, please don’t blurt it out in the thread. I’m not ashamed of where I work but I’d prefer it not be easily searchable on google–thanks in advance!
I tailored my resume pretty specifically to my current job and the job I’m looking for, since the company I work for and the one to which I’m applying are quite similar. I REALLY want to get this job, since my current employer recently sold half of itself to this other company, and they’re on the way up. My current employer is on the way down as a result of the sale. The position is a step up from my current one, but not a large one; neither position requires a degree. I definitely have the requisite experience for the one to which I am applying–no degree is necessary and they vastly prefer applicants who have claims experience. So the job offer fits me to a T! Pays better than what I’m doing now, too.
I hope you don’t mind that I blurred some words to protect the guilty (heh heh). And the resume is a word doc, I just made it a picture so I could blur stuff. I appreciate any advice about word choice or the activities I chose to include. I think I probably used too many ampersands, but they are necessary to fit it all onto one page. I also made mention of high school and college achievements; is it tacky to be doing this now (I’m 26)? I’ve only had one really good career-type job, everything before that was mostly college and then one part-time retail job. I wasn’t sure if the high school leadership/educational stuff could still be relevant. Anyway, I think those things helped me land my current job (the HR lady where I work was in the same service fraternity as me in college!) so I wasn’t going to take them out unless people think I should.
