A Tiny Paperwork Victory :)

James has just left with his resume and application for one of the jobs he'd most like to be considered for, for next year.  It has felt like he had a big assignment due today - the final copy of his resume all finished and the applications filled out!!  I prayed lots of little silent prayers as I fiddled with the order of information on his resume trying to figure out what would be most important in this potential employer's eyes.  Writing resumes scares me.  I am sooooo excited now that we have a complete resume to fiddle around and tailor to different schools so he can get out there and apply everywhere.  I love the resume too - it looks cool :)  James is pretty qualified and experienced - when I wrote down all the courses he's done and all the experience he has, I was pretty impressed.  I couldn't put toooo much detail about anything he's done in, because it would've been too long, and employers would've gotten bored, but just the dot points of it all look fantastic.  In fact it's taking a little bit of willpower for me not to screenshot it onto this blogpost :)  He's going to be awesome.  Seriously, they'd be crazy not to hire him.  But YAY for a BIG-ger stressful piece of paperwork being finished, and James' first serious application being hand delivered today!!! :)  Bring on the prayers and the rest of the applications, I can't WAIT to see where we're at this time next year!! :)
