resume sex

Posted on: February 9, 2011

Resume sex at your own risk.

I just had resume sex.

Graduate school is about to end. Bittersweet. Yes I want school to be over, but all the effort of getting a job and facing the prospect of having to settle for a less-than-perfect job is so very bitter.

Which brings me to the title of this blog. Resume sex. Yes. Resume. Sex.

I needed to craft a CV for some jobs. Resume I have, CV I do not. Yes, there is a difference, and if someone asks you specifically for a CV send them a CV.

I decided to send my CV draft to a friend who is really good at editing. After I sent it to him I told him sharing your CV/resume with someone is very intimate, like someone has just seen you naked.

You spend so much time working on your resume and you feel a great sense of accomplishment when it’s finished and sent it off.

It doesn’t feel as intimate when you send it off, though. It’s more like a one-night stand. Someone is going to be touching your resume and you are going to stand there, you hope they remember something good, mostly, you just don’t want to look bad in front of them, but comfort yourself because you know you’ll never see them again.

As my friend noted, the climax of sending it felt good but you’ll probably never hear back and they probably didn’t get as much out from receiving as you did from giving.

Maybe now all the men out there will realize what it’s like to a be a woman in bed with a bad sex partner? On second thoughts, I’ll probably get my dream job before three men realize that’s true.
