CV stuff

Tweaking my CV right now. and boy hoo boy does it look way outta DATE O.o and... lame.. I mean not like I can put my TFCO stuff in there, albeit it's a very good experience in management and whatnot, but sadly that's not how things work...so eh...

At the moment my Professional Objective is: "To continue with my ambition to develop my previously learned library hands on experience to that of a qualified professional while continuing to work in a library environment. "

Which I suppose isn't too bad right now. I'm trying to convey the fact that I'm planning a Master's via distance learning in literacy whilst I'm working; so yeah.

I hate writing CVs, they never convey the full 'thing' of a person. Just because someone has a degree in XYZ doesnt' mean they're a good worker in that field, just like if someone doesn't have ad egree in a certain field doesn't mean they're a complete moron.

CVs are really dumb that way. Average people don't really think outside the box - they don't realise that just because you have a piece of paper, doesn't mean you're good at what they want to hire you to do. And conversly - just because you don't have a piece of paper, doesn't mean you cannot, for example, write computer programs.

I don't like my CV either. I should rewrite it, but meh. I don't even have a "professional objective".

yeah. that's the thing. it's "oh you don't have a degree, well you're uneducated!" or "you got a degree, you must be smart" hell we've all had professors/lecturers who might be great at doing research stuff, but suck as lecturers, but they're all Ph. Ds so hey, they must be good ... For Cryin' Out loud.... >.>

Professional Objective: "get a job to pay off loans ASAP" heh

I just hope my current 'objective' aims to say that I'm planning this as a long term thing not a short term jobbie....but who knows... I've yet to fill out the online application. that's gonna be funky.
