a desirable candidate

February 1, 2011 by Heather

Today, after a mountain’s worth of some motivation from my dear husband, I spent some time in his office working on my resume.  Little known fact about Heather:  I am not an extremely driven individual.  Don’t misunderstand me, I want to succeed and achieve things and make a difference and all that….but most of the time I’d just rather take a nap and hope for the best.  That is a bit of an exaggeration perhaps, but you get the idea.  I am not what you would call a “go-getter.”  I think I used to be, but somewhere between age 17 and the blissful here-and-now, the part of my brain that fed me doses of “dream big” and “reach for the sky” went awry.  Who knows.

Luckily, I married a super goal-oriented and amazing guy (not to mention incredibly handsome) who truly believes in me and my ability to be more than I think I can be.  He is always inspiring me and encouraging me to do and try things that my pessimistic brain says not to bother with (running a half marathon, for example).

Back to the resume.  I am working on getting it together to send into Colorado State University in Fort Collins to apply for a job there that I am becoming increasingly interested in the longer I toss it around in my head.  Andrew is the one who brought it to my attention, along with the idea that I should go for it.

Resume finished, check.

Cover letter, in progress, and reads as follows:
