But writing a resume sucks. I hate doing it. Every brutal minute is spent hemming, hawing, groaning and moaning.
The reasons I dislike it so much are plentiful. The nature of it is totally pretentious. It requires that I qualify everything I've ever done through arbitrary, yet ridiculously specific numbers (as if anyone tracks that stuff on a regular basis). The way you write it can make the exact same work appear either obscenely profound or completely mundane. It makes me realize that having 10+ jobs in the past 10 years is a huge no-no/pain in the ass to talk about. And it's boring. It's a boring thing to hammer out in Microsoft Word.
I've done a great many things in my adult life and participated in a great many activities both paid and volunteer. One would think this is spectacular thing, but when it comes to writing a resume, I probably just come off as completely scattered and non-committal.
Please, please, let this torture be over soon...
