Never include you dropped out. Also say strength like I’m good working with people ,I’m a team player, I enjoy so and so etc. you want to include phone number name e-mail and address. Include master’s degree bachelors degree anything that makes you feel good about your self. Don’t lie on your resume if they find out they will most definitely not give you the job. Also try getting a good report from a teacher.

Sounds like your resume is already filling up. Yes, include tutoring and babysitting as past jobs and do mention college. There are several good websites out there that have great formats and tips. Also, to make yourself stand out, include a cover letter. You don’t have to actually mail this, but find the hiring official’s email and email it as a .pdf file so it looks more professional. Be sure to have some family/friends review it for some extra feedback. Check out this sites:

Answer by Rocconisse
Generally, resumes go like this:
Centered at the top:

Your name
Address
Phone number
email address

“Summary of Qualifications”
Yes, do write a short paragraph that basically sells you as a great person and employee. You want to briefly summarize your good qualities, experience and education. Aim it towards the job you’re applying for; for this one you’ll want to list qualities and experiences that would make you a great customer service agent in an airport, like knowledge of travel and computer systems, patience under pressure, flexibility in scheduling, willingness to work odd hours, etc. Since you don’t have many “concrete” qualifications, this really needs to be well-written!

“Work Experience”

Use bullet points or a short paragraph to give the places you worked, the starting and end dates and your dutes. Example: “Double Dip Deli, waitress/cashier/cook Aug. ’09 – Jan. ’10” Sometimes if a job was really puny, you shouldn’t list it, as it’s better to look like you’ve not worked due to school or whatever versus worked pathetic jobs or worked a really short time at them. Use “nanny” instead of “babysitting” if you have to list SOMETHING.

“Education”

Use bullet points or a short paragraph to list your school qualifications. Mention any classes or certifications that relate directly to your job. Put down your high school first, if you’ve not got much else in the way of qualifications. Yes, you should mention you’ve taken some college classes; you can put “attended UW ____” and the dates. You don’t have to mention you dropped out; the end dates of your college time will indicate that for you. And never say it in an interview; you haven’t “dropped out,” you are reorganizing your priorities, taking time off, switched your focus, decided you’d rather be challenged through work, etc b.s. phrases. Dropped out = bad.

“Volunteer Work, Activities & Interests”

Same deal, different topic. If you aren’t volunteering now, DO IT! You’re not working anyway, so you have time, and it really adds value to a weak resume. Try the local library, animal shelter, food pantry, school, senior center, etc. Tip: they want volunteers who will commit to a few hours a week for several months; showing up once randomly is more a nuisance than a help.

“References”

This is a list of people who are willing to be contacted by your possible employers. They’re also willing to talk about how professional, caring, hard-working, etc you are. These should NOT be family members. Teachers, possibly your priest, previous employers, volunteer organization coordinators, mentors and professional contacts make good references. Make sure you have their permission before listing them!! Give their full name, phone number and a brief description of their role in your life (i.e. “Previous manager and mentor”)

You’re done! Print on good quality paper, NEVER have typos, grammar errors or uncapitalized pronouns and submit it everywhere you can think of attached to the job’s application.

Answer by T
If you you have little or no resume-writing experience, and if you’re competing with other applicants, you should consider getting your resume done by a resume writing service. There are quite a few. Best (and cheapest) one I know is http://www.flatrateresumes.com

Difficult “best friend.”?

Posted in Babysitting on 8th June 2014

Difficult “best friend.”?
Im a freshmen in high school and nobody came to the high school I went to after we left middle school cause its so far away. *Anyway I had a friend Emma and she was one of my best friends. We had SO much in common and our though process was remotely identical! She, in my mind, has been known to ‘take jabs’ at people, mainly me. We are both immensely competitive with each other: as we play all the same sports and get the exact same grades; not to mention we had the same friends. She admits she is a jealous person in general but this is getting out of control!
I KNOW I don’t take jabs at her, cause its my biggest annoyance. One example went like this:
“Meghan, so didn’t you say there were a lot of nice people at Hill Ridge”
“Yeah there are, why”
“Oh interesting…. that’s not what I’ve heard.” <--Not needed! *************************************************** Another time was when I saw a little kid and I said, "aww look at that kid! gorgeous little girl!" And she says, "You hate kids! Why do you never babysit!" I sharply replied, "Em, you don't know my life. So stop saying it like you know it better than me!" *She just glared at me. *************************************************** Finally, I have an all-time best friend that I met through my brother when I was 3 years old. We have been best friends ever since and Emma is crazily jealous it seems. Just today she comes over and says, "Soooo how are you and Emily..." And I say, "um.. good" She said, "Well didn't you guys get in a HUGE fight or something. That's what you told me... that you guys are drifting apart." And I just said, "Em, once again, stop narrating my life! I think Emily and I know our friendship way better than you do." *** Just a FEW examples that stuck in my head- its really irritating so what do I say to her so that she'll stop doing this and be nice! If nothing works, what can I say (without losing my temper) to make her realize that she's being ridiculous! THANKS GUYS:) Best answer(s):

Then, you should just move on if you think that someone is taking you down or tell someone to stop doing things that get your feelings so low…

Good luck!

Anyone know of and have used,Cruises that offer childcare for toddlers?
Were looking to book a cruise and we have 5 kids. We want to take the 3 older girls on excursions but think its to much for two toddlers ages 1 and 2 to do daily.Anyone used and reccomend any cruiselines that offer a “baby camp” or childcare? Thanks!

Answer by Joni
I don’t know about the others, but Carnival only allows you to leave the children at Camp Carnival on At Sea days.

Answer by Anja H
Most cruise lines look after kids from the age of 3 and older and fully potty-trained.

Answer by J<3R
Disney cruise line has the best childcare. My kids loved it and begged me to take them there 24/7. You can even see what it looks like on the disney cruise website. It is an AWESOME center!

Answer by seacat
All cruise lines now offer youth activities and “babysitting” in the youth center. However, Disney is the only line that will take children as young as yours. NCL accepts 2 year olds (and they don’t have to be potty trained), the other major lines only take them from 3 years. I don’t know much about Disney, but NCL accepts children in the youth center while parents go ashore, not just on sea days. Most of the major cruise lines do offer this service for a fee.

Travel agents in particular will tell you any cruise line will accept your children, when the reality is quite different. The worst thing is getting onboard and finding that in fact you can’t leave your children in the youth center when you were told you could! Look into Disney due to the ages, but have you thought about leaving the toddlers at home with a family member or friends? Then you know you won’t have any issues! Good luck.

Answer by Jeanette
Disney Cruise for sure. It’s the only one that would take infants and toddlers and have late night hours also. Their nursery is very cute and the staff was great. Just got back on 9/9 from a cruise. There is a fee ($ 6 for 1 child per hour + $ 5 for any addtl children) They keep them busy and even have the characters come and visit them while in the nursery.
