I like micheladas as well, yum!

My mother likes her beer in a frosty mug with salt on the rim - half beer half orange juice! LOL...

If you dont want a margarita (yum!) or they don't have sangria, have a Negra Modelo (beer)!

YECK!  >:(

Hee hee ... you should try it, it's quite delish!

I suggest buying the book Guerilla Tactics for Getting the Legal Job of Your Dreams ... Regardless of your grades, your school, or your work experience! by Kimm Alayne Walton. Chapter 10 is titled "Help! My Grades Stink!"

The whole book is worth a read, but that chapter in particular might help you feel better about going on.

Good luck!

Indeed, what you describe is much more what I expect from a resume as well. Pictures are not required, but it is quite common, which is something I've always considered a bit "too much".

Unless you're a hot chick being interviewed by a bunch of men :D :D

Queen Cruella - I realize -now- that there are vast differences! Hee hee ...I guess my mother has been right all these years to harass me about my handwriting. I've always WANTED to write like a middle school english teacher (you remember the kind, right? Looks like they were the ones to WRITE those handwriting books back in kindergarden), it's just never quite worked out. I gave up trying when I learned how to type. :)

TO be quite honest, one of the big reasons I left my public school district and vowed never to set foot in a classroom there again was that they were still doing handwriting exercises for cursive in 6th grade. Meanwhile my state is tearing up the bottom of the charts in other areas like reading and math. Hmm--- see any problem here? Shouldn't kids be learning penmanship until around 3-4th grade anyway?

Oh YES! Penmanship should be learned waaaay before middle school. I can't believe that school was still doing handwriting exercises in 6th grade. They had use learning to type then ;) lol. I just meant that middle school english teachers have pretty handwriting THEMSELVES. I dont know why, but they all seem to have that pretty, fluid, perfect style.

I like hot chicks, good point indeed :) Your picture (assuming the avatar is you) would improve any resume in my eyes ;)

Haha thanks. It is indeed me at a flustered moment. I think including that particular picture might not do so well unless I was applying for a gig as the company comedienne!

Darn. I saw this thread growing and thought people were still actually being admitted.

Carry on. :P

Since we've switched to talking about what to put in a resume ...

I took a "Business French" class during the semester I was in France. It was taught in french by a frechwoman so I'm going to take her word on it. We had a session where we had to make "frech resumes" for ourselves.

We were to list name, address, phone, email, DOB, marital status, number of children. During an interview we were told to be prepared to answer who the primary care giver for the children is and where they go during the day if you're at work and if you're planning on having any MORE children. There was a spot on the resume itself where we were told to affix a current picture.

And we were told that if a cover letter is mailed (and not emailed) it should be handwritten! She said in the past large companies liked to send them off to have the handwriting analyzed. Not so common today, but the handwritten cover letters still happen.

No one asked me, but it all blew my mind so I thought I'd share. :)  One of the most intersting classes I've taken in UG is an "intercultural issues" class where we spent some time talking about business issues that arise when doing international work because of things just like this. It was cool!

I guess after months of waiting what's another 10 days? I'm ready to just be able to call this cycle officially FINISHED.
