Meeting with the friend of the friend was very helpful. He ripped my resume apart in the nicest way possible. And I mean that without any trace of sarcasm.
Like my career path, the resume needed to be focused. The guy practically told me I had to make a decision between marketing and writing. Funny isn’t it? Moet or tuna-fish sandwiches. Money or Love?
Regardless, I’ve given the document a little tweak and plan on sending and resending it out again. He also gave me some contacts at recruitment agencies. I’m getting really good at writing snappy letters to recruiters to make myself stand out.
Maybe I’ll be a professional cover letter writer. A professional anything would be good at this point…as long as it earns me a paycheck.
