You gotta do what you love, your job is what you spend most of your life doing. Response- “it’s hard to make money doing what you love.” Get creative then- get creative with making your work what you love. Trust me I know. I’ve gotten no breaks. My dreams make me broke but they make me happy. As long as you’re doing what you love in some aspect in your life then you’re living right.
This is the first time I’ve come across a job application that did not have some kind of form or request for your resume but I kind of appreciate that because as I sat down to contemplate what to write – I thought of all the raw truths my resume does not reflect and this is what I came up with. Hopefully it’s enough to get my break 🙂
My name is Allison Ryder and my resume identifies me as a hardworking, responsible, and dedicated worker with a professional, detail-oriented, and proactive approach. It states that I possess strong interpersonal, creative, computer, written, and verbal skills; with a profound knowledge of business, editing, and proofreading. It will also reflect my commitment to work while being a full time student and my experience in various different industries.
However, what it will not show is that I worked full time to put myself through school and that hard work paid off when I graduated with High Honors in English with a BA in English Writing and a minor in English Literature and how I was acknowledged on the Dean’s List. It does not show how I took my dreams into my own hands and was published in 2010 with a book of poetry titled “Words Left Unspoken,” through Janson Media. It does not reveal that I am in the process of publishing again but this time it is a book of poetry and a book of action fiction.
My administrative experience and background makes me an asset for many jobs but it is my love for writing and my dream to pursue editing and publication that makes me ideal for this particular position. Though my editing experience has been academic and personal; for myself and the works of friends, as well as on my personal blog, I count it because I utilize my knowledge to do it. My resume does not show how I assist, write, and edit resumes for my friends and co-workers, not for money but just by request. Ironically enough the courses offered through IAP are all industries I’ve had interest in since childhood. I have a list of passions, dreams, risks, and goals to pursue by the end of my life and working for an event planning/wedding decorating company or running one is on that list.
Perhaps stumbling across this position is more than simple interest but an act of mere fate. Perhaps I will learn more than I could have hoped for working for this company and this company will benefit from my commitment, talent, and skills. I have searched for a job which compliments what I went to school for, since I graduated in 2012 and I have not found one or I have not been given the chance to prove my value. This is more than a job position to me, this is my dream and I will put everything I have into pursuing it. This being a work from home position makes it even more worthwhile because I can edit as I write, in the comfort of my home. This is my field of study, my interest, and my primary focus and I would love the opportunity to work for your company.
Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.
communicate. even when it’s uncomfortable, uneasy, or difficult. be fearfully honest. so many problems, arguments, misconceptions, and assumptions could be nonexistent if we all learned to communicate. sometimes it’s about the why, the reason, the way we’re thinking that needs to be explained to be understood. sometimes writers have a difficult time communicating verbally but it’s crucial to avoiding fights. it’s crucial to open up in order for people to understand the why behind our words, behind our behavior.
The truth is all we have. Wrong. The truth is the reality of it. What may or may not be a lie – the things we do by heart, by like, by lust, by love, by faith – those are the things that make us feel alive. Whether truth or lie, those are the moments of validity, of courage, of fearlessness. that is what we have, those chances and risks is what gives it all purpose.
I love you. Happy Valentine’s Day.
maybe not in the way you want. maybe not in the way you think. maybe in exactly the way you feel. maybe in precisely the way you took this. maybe as a friend. maybe as more. maybe as a parent, as a child, as a lover, as a sister, as a brother. maybe as a stranger with simple acknowledgment of your existence. maybe in some complex way. maybe it’s untold or widely known. maybe with profound meaning or peaceful simplicity.
I’m a firm believer in celebrating love everyday. celebrating like. celebrating lust. celebrating each other. but since it’s valentine’s day, everyone deserves their heart to be touched. by a smile, by a touch, by the greeting, by a card. it’s not about things or plans.. it’s a day to take out of the busyness, the craziness, the chaos and say hey, you’re thought of. 💙❤💕💋😘
you can judge me. you can challenge me. you can talk about me. you can fight me. you can try me. you can dislike me. you can try to tear me down. but you will not disrespect me. you can dictate. you can swing where i feel it. you may hurt me. but you will not lie to me. you can try to make me feel insecure. you can hate me. you can think what you want about me. but you can’t lie about me. you can instigate. you can put me down. you can disagree. you can point. you can stare. you may hurt me but you won’t break me.
Honestly I don’t care for either team. I’m a Colts fan, hardcore. Giants are okay too. But I always pick a team because I love football. I said at the start of this game that Seattle had a good shot but that I was going to root for Denver. Here’s my piece of advice because this is ridiculous…
If you’re going to lose then lose but at least fight for that loss.
