  • Logan-Seth Webb

    Applied for a job at an international school in northern Thailand. Took a resume (this format) to them and was told that it was not even a resume. (assuming they are looking for a CV or other such document)

  • Pamela Kennedy

    So, if it takes you a long time in between jobs to find another job so you have lengthy “gaps” and you have no references, you are just screwed and destined to die sleeping in your paid-for car somewhere in Middle America where rent is cheap and everyone else lives in their car too…??
