You could sell yourself


Wouldn't that require her to move to Nevada? :laugh:

Mine goes back about 12 years. But I was at my last job for over 7 years. Then I have an abbreviated list of jobs before that.

:laugh:  Unheard of! If I go that far back, I should probably omit "shitting in diapers" in my skills list.

That's pretty much what I do. I've had so many jobs I'm trying to figure out if some of them should just "unexist".

id consider that some employers would prefer to see a stable work history. Not that i have one, but there was a period where i cycled jobs for a few years until i could find one that i could tolerate. Those i leave off.  NO ONE is going to remember who did what 10-15 years ago, so i fudge the dates to cover the gaps.

it works for me, but im "job search lazy" and dont actively look for new opportunity. i guess things are still "tolerable" at the current shop.

I saw one of the characters at a restaurant yesterday, his nametag said "Jesus".  :laugh:  You probably have a couple in your bindery by now.

And seeing as these are all printing jobs, at least 3 of the shops where I worked no longer exist. Let the fudging begin.

Not us. Most of the Mexicans fled when the company required bank accounts for direct deposit. Still have a couple of pressman but no bindery workers.
