After days and days of waiting waiting waiting, I actually have a meeting scheduled with Dan the Man, the Grateful Palate himself, here briefly from Australia!! Not exactly sure where I will be going next–or when–but I am optimistic! More waiting in stores now! Watch for an upcoming post: a meeting with the Grateful Palate!

Hmmn, really need to do something about that CV (see post below…) How do I turn that monster into a resume??? A little research and a talk with Annie’s friend HR expert Joan Morton suggests:

* 2 pages (max–I have seen CVs that run into the double digits!)

* list 4-5 accomplishments

1) Art Predator newspaper column, radio show, blog;
2) grant writing: large and small from several hundred to several thousand to multiyear, multi-bill mega grants;
3) teaching: yoga, mountaineering, college undergrad and grad, education, environmental studies, writing, literature, creative writing, critical thinking;
4) grant facilitator, program director, marketing, recruitment, website & brochure design, promotional video;
5) published poet/exhibiting artist

* summarize, summarize, summarize: get the career into one 3-5 line sentence (35 words!)


* determine 3-5 key attributes

* find 3 references

That shouldn’t be too hard! (any volunteers?)

Turning my CV into a resume is not going to be easy–like transforming a novel into a sitcom! and I have to figure out what to wear!! I don’t think my Patagonia skirt and t-shirt and TEVAs will cut it!

wish me luck!

    You don’t need luck. I have complete confidence in your ability to be who you are and as a consequence get everything you want and more whilst fretting. Haha, good luck. You sure you don’t want to send me his email, so I can have a quiet nudge nudge wink wink say no more about large men in dark suits and sunglasses?
