Insanity is doing the same thing the same way and expecting different results. Benjamin Franklin.

A couple of weeks ago I dropped by the state unemployment office to get help finding a job. I talked to the veteran’s assistance specialist, who recycled the same advice I’ve gotten before and which hasn’t worked.

What shocked me is that his recommendations to rewrite my resume were diametrically opposed to the recommendations the specialist at the other state unemployment office gave me. His suggestions would take my resume BACK to its original form.

He also observed that my resume was filled with the references to management and that I should be careful not to “manage yourself out of a job”.


The last person told me to focus on my management background.
