Nearly 12 hours

| No Comments

I spent nearly 12 hours today preparing a resume and other application materials to apply for an open position at the college where I am currently employed. Whew. And I already had a good, updated resume on hand!

I've spent the past 3 weeks and a few sleepless nights thinking about applying, thinking about the reasons to apply (lots of good ones), thinking about the reasons to not apply (at least 2 big not-so-good ones), and on Friday morning finally decided to apply. I have reservations about the salary and about the length of employment term (currently worded as "Temp" because the department is in flux).

If I am offered the position, I have a few ideas for additional responsibilities that would increase the salary. Hopefully, the "Temp" nature of the position will hash itself out during the interview process. If the offer and conditions are not satisfactory, I will remain in my current position at the college and continue to try to enhance my responsibilities and try to get an assistant for the more mundane website updating tasks.

I now have:

  • a newly updated resume (mostly new formatting, some shortening / cutting / reorganizing of info)
  • the completed application form
  • the completed minimum qualifications or equivalency form
  • a list of professional growth activities
  • a list of references
  • a list of graduate level courses I've completed
  • testimonials from students of web authoring classes I have taught
  • an improved, reorganized portfolio website

Still need to:

  • find and make copies of transcripts
  • write a cover letter

If I'm chosen to be interviewed, I'll need to prepare a 10-minute sample lesson from a list of topics. Yikes!
