The Hunter: Me - The Prey: a Job

I've been hard at work searching and hunting for a new job with no such luck. I got a call today from one of the temp agencies in town for a call center job, but because I have my modeling classes on Saturdays I was told it wouldn't work out. Part of me is greatly disappointed; I need a job! The other part of me is relieved. I've been down that call center/ marketing road before and that is one path I do not want to revisit.

I've also re-created my resume. I'm hoping, with the pointers I got from one of my instructors, I will have better luck. I changed the look of it and added some "specials interests" and "hobbies". I'm not really sure why I put those in quotation marks...

Anyway, I'm posting my resume on my blog hoping that someone, somewhere out there will stumble upon it and realize I am just the person he or she is looking for.. I left off my references, naturally, so weirdos won't call them. I don't want to put people through a stalker situation.
