I’ve never liked writing resumes. It always feels like I have to do a lot of BSing, something that I like to do when it comes to playing Tekken or doing BJJ, but something I hate to do with business. Well… It just so happens that I may never write a resume again in my life! (yay) I’ve been reading this book “The 4-Hour Workweek” and it has this section in it about out sourcing. So… What I’ve done is [posted a project] on the website Elance. What should happen is after a week or so, I will have accepted a bid. Then a few days after that I should have my resume and cover letter (maybe even a couple different versions.)
It Gets Better
Well, the book doesn’t just stop at single projects. It also goes on to describe something called Virtual Assistants. Basically you can hire your own assistant (or team of) to complete any kind of repeated task that you can come up with. Why stop with resume writing when I can go so far as to have a team of assistants contact employers and setup interviews, using the resume and cover letter I didn’t write. 😀 lol
Should be AWESOME!
Oh, this does cost money, but I’m betting the time saved and speed that things get done will pay it back. All this is a test run of doing projects and using VAs that should have a bigger payday in the future if I figure everything out correctly. Besides, it’s fun!
A Break from (Almost Daily) Blogging
My blog has been getting a little neglected since I’ve been back. It’s basically because I’ve been tied up with seeing friends, seeing family, registering for school, traveling a bit and all that kind of stuff. I actually miss the more frequent blogging and have some pictures and movies to post and stories to tell. I should be back on the horse in about 1.5 weeks time.
