Created my first CV today, and it’s a bittersweet feeling because 1. I don’t like the fact that I’m getting older, although the freedom and independence is of course delightful, and 2. because I don’t have a long employment history due to me helping my family out a lot.
It’s not that I’m lacking the skills, well maybe, but more lacking the overall experience of being in full-time work. As someone who has tried but failed to keep a job, most times because of my anxiety, attention to detail or the boss’ idealistic demands, that means it’s a little scary applying for jobs, let alone creating a list of my accomplishments and so forth.
From an early age, I’ve always been an intellectual person, someone who takes pride in what she achieves in life and takes the bad and transforms it into something of good use and that’s how I have coped with tough situations, obstacles, learning curbs etc.
Hopefully as I get older, work and stability comes easier in life.
