I’m about a tenth of a millimeter away from taking a hammer to my computer. I’m trying to write a nice resume for this internship I’m applying for. I downloaded this classy template, and I typed in all the info…and then when I save it, the formatting suddenly looks like gremlins had a drunken party with it. I’ve redone it four times–same result every single time. And to think, I’m claiming in my resume that I’m proficient in Windows, Linux, MS Office, and Open Office. *headdesk*
The position I want is the spring 2013 internship at the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, which is headquartered right here in downtown Northampton. They do work similar to what the ACLU does. Not sure what an equivalent organization would be for my international friends, sorry.
I think it would be right up my alley–I was the weirdo in high school reading Supreme Court opinions for fun. I even recapped Gideon v. Wainwright and Miranda v. Arizona as Shakespearean sonnets. (I wish to god I still had copies. Probably on a 3 1/2 floppy in my mother’s garage somewhere.
I just gotta get my resume to look like a grown-up did it, not a first-grader playing with word processing. And figure out how to write a good cover letter. I’ve never applied for a job before that required one.
I really want this internship.
