I did a new update to my resume’ removing extraneous things including the small section on interests and hobbies, this brought my resume’ to exactly two pages long. It is hard to believe but the new resume at only two pages covers 30+ years of aerospace experience and includes a brief listing of my banking experience just in case I want to apply for a banking or money handling jobs.
LinkedIn was another change. When updating my profile and adding additional job titles and locations I saw an item within the site I was not aware of. It adds a hash to your account identifying that you are actively looking for a job and makes a post for you asking for other members and your connections to reach out and help you if they desire. When I did this I was getting responses from my contacts within minutes. I also received a response from my old boss from The Boeing Company in Seattle, WA.
My mood is better now.
