Tonight I had a resume review at SETC. I sat down with the Artistic Director of Lexington Children’s Company and confessed to her my resume woes. In an effort to show everything I have ever done in my life, I have overwhelmed my resume. I knew that was the case, but I needed someone else to tell me that.
She said, “We all have gaps. It’s okay.” I could feel myself start to tear up because I felt empathy from another person. It’s exactly what I needed to hear.
“This is the resume which shows us who YOU are.” Oh, yeah. In the struggle to figure out what they want, I forgot that what they want is ME. Or maybe that’s not what they want, and that is okay. Because if I’m not what they want, then there is a pretty good chance that, when all is said and done, they aren’t what I want either.
