Lightbulb Input needed

I've decided that I'd like to put my resume out for consideration of a new job field. I'm a public school teacher and would like to do some altering in my life.

Okay, before you snicker....how about some helpful tips.

Besides having my educational background and years of teaching experience, I have several years of webmastering and site creation behind me. Graphics experience and a best selling book on Amazon. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif But, alas, as I create my resume, I have no clue what to do next. Laugh and snort but in the field of education, you put in a resume and job application at the nearest school district office. Easy. I know where to apply. A no brainer.

Where do I look for a change? Is there a place to send my resume to a head hunter?

I believe I have multi-talented background to offer a company and want to give it a try. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

ANy suggestions for this gal?

Wow, a best seller on Amazon? That's *very* cool!

Thingamajob.com seems to have a service like what you're looking for. Headhunter.net does to, now that you mention it - just click on Add Resume in the top nav bar.

Hope this helps with your new career! http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I've also heard very good things about monster.com, if only because it's the biggest job board around...

You could try there, but any job offers you get might ask that you move. Have you thought about whether or not you would want to move for a job? That'd probably be a factor, though some employers are fine with tele-commuting.

Good luck!

Kathy,

Boy o boy can I relate to your story http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Some additional thoughts in no particular order:

1) Go to my "student" site at http://publishedperfection.com/ Then select Jobs in the drop down at the top and then some terms. Don't forget your City or you will get zillons. You are searching ** all ** the major job sites in one easy to use procedure.

2) You need to prepare a "web compliant" Resume and each of those sites you hit in #1 above will guide you on your submission, format, etc.

3) Don't forget you can work for anyone on planet earth without leaving the comfort of your own Geek office. Virtual employment might be an appropriate term for this.

4) Believe it or not their are still a few employers that want a Resume on dead trees http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif Via the USPO. A few quick thoughts on this issue. You need a "Cover Letter" and a Resume. Both are a single page and no more. The cover letter should always be sent to a particular person and never to something like "Human Resources" etc.

HTH and best of luck and congrats on a best seller.
