Resume

Do you know of any sites to create a resume that are actually 100% free? I went through filling one out yesterday that said it was free but when it got to the download part I had to pay for a 14 day trial. Ugh. I just want to make one up so I can apply for some work from home jobs. A lot of places I have looked at want you to upload a resume. Its frustrating. I don't have much of anything interesting to put on one. I feel like I sound so stupid filling them out since I do not have a college degree of any sort and all of the places I have worked have been restaurants. How am I supposed to put together a resume that looks somewhat impressive? Nerves and frustration are getting the best of me today. I still don't even know what kind of jobs to apply for. I am so lost in the work from home world. Its all so new to me and I have no experience. I don't even know where to start. But I need extra income and something to escape in a sense the craziness that is my everyday life and feel like I have a purpose beyond chasing kids around and cleaning. I don't think I was cut out to be a stay at home mom sadly. :(

    I have a chrome computer. It runs solely off the internet. It does have an app similar to word. I'll have to check it out and see. Thanks :)

        If you are able to have someone watch your children, going up to the local job search building... I am blank on name at the moment, they will give you a list of jobs in the area along with help you create a free resume and even help build it.

          If you are using Google Docs you can upload a template on there. Just upload the template and save it as a document. Then you can go back and put in your information and take out the "standard" stuff they put in.

          Also, before you send your resume out tailor it for keywords that a particular company may be looking for.

          Example, if you are looking for work in child care think of ways to put in "safety conscious" and "patient". I always tweak mine a bit before I send it out.

            I have some resume templates that a career counselor from my employment office had emailed me. If you'd like I can email the attachment to you. Keep in mind, there are a variety of formats you can use: functional, chronological, or a combination of both. The neat thing is that if you do a mix or a functional resume, the person reviewing it can't tell your age. Sometimes you get your foot in the door into a field you're interested in by volunteering in an organization or agency that you believe in.

            Thank you. That would be great if you could email them over to me. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for the advice also. I am hoping within the next year to have some income of my own so we can start putting some money into our future and not just our present. :) I will send you my email address in a personal message..
