Resuming Resume Revision

Now that we've come to the decision of moving (which took nearly 3 months to do), it's time to iron out the details. Moving trucks, apartments, new job, new school, new gym, good neighborhoods, commutes, distance from airports, etc.... It's a pretty daunting task to come up with a new life when you've never really visited the area. Next weekend, Taylor and I are planning to fly down to ATL and drive around and get to know the city, check out some apartments, do some touristy things that we won't have time for once I'm working. It's the weekend of our anniversary, and it would be nice to do it without Rosie (so much harder to non-rev with a kid), but finding someone to watch her for the weekend would probably be harder than bringing her along. Taylor and I get so little alone time these days, and it's only going to get worse till we move.

I dusted off my resume, and added in the details of my current job. Even though I've only been in my position 7 months, I've acquired some good new skills (OR scheduling, cost accounting, charge entry, physician recruitment and relocation, and the lingo/procedures specific to thoracic surgery) and fine-tuned some others (transcription, purchase requisitions, procurement, more complex call schedules, etc.) I've been my department's Joint Commission Accreditation and safety specialist, and know all the ins and outs of NPSG's and SCIP and all the other acronyms.

It's a tedious process, especially to focus on finding a new job in a new city, all while being exhausted from a hard day at work.

Hi Nicole, I just saw you comment at someother pilot wife type blog ..I too am one and usually hesitate to go read other pilot wife type blogs for ..well...lots of reasons.
ANYWAY .. my husband and I are from ATL .. good luck with the move (and the TRAFFIC!!) .. my husbands company has a base in ATL but for another whole host of reasons we have decided not to make that move .. which isnt my point of being here in your comment section ... BUT if you need any insider view of ATL let me know ... we lived there a long time and still have lots and family and freinds there and go back regularly:)

and and STAY AWAY from clayton county .. the school system there just lost their accredidation. the whole system .. not just a few schools

Hi there! Thanks for finding my blog. I'm always on the lookout for new blogging friends :)

I can totally relate to your resume post. And the part about the moving. I think I did a post about all the moves my hubby and I have done in the 8 yrs we've been married, I'll have to check my archives. I don't even want to start on the many "careers" I embarked on while he followed his... LOL
