Color me crazy, but I’m looking for a j-o-b! An actually bring in da money, bring in da funk j-o-b.
There’s only one slight problem. This is what my résumé will look like.
I haven’t worked in the traditional sense of going to an office and earning a paycheck since I don’t know when, long long ago, but I keep thinking that I’m still somehow employable, despite the obvious lack of W2 forms.
I DO have an abundance of marketable skills, probably way more than your average 67 year old. There’s nothing average about me, but try telling that to a potential employer, if I even get to an interview.
What’s my cover letter going to say?
I’ve been trying to think what kind of job I’d be best suited for. I can do just about anything – from organizing to writing to speaking to planning to overseeing to delegating. I’m extraordinarily computer savvy too. I play well in the sandbox so I’d have no trouble working in a group.
So how about this job?
I tripped across it last week and thought I COULD do this job. The question is, would Stop & Shop even consider me?
I figure if I’m going to work, I want to bring home a fat paycheck. I’m not looking to be a sales clerk in a Bedford boutique and earn nothing. It’s go big or don’t go at all.
I’m working on my résumé and cover letter today, trying to keep a straight face. I imagine this is an exercise in futility, although I will say, if someone did hire me, they’d get an amazing employee. Really. It’s just getting in the front door that’s going to be the huge hurdle.
