AKA my Sister is the best one ever! I sent her a so-so resume, and she buffed it up like Emeril-- Bam! Bam! Bam! So I am posting it, not for personal accolades-- but so that anyone else looking for a sample can see what a nice one looks like. My searches did not bring back many hits, so this is for future reference for others! Thanks to my sister, Dale! Some of the tabs are off, and the bullets are missing, but you can get the idea, ya? Awesome! I hope that someone else is inspired by this to get out there and get that dream job!
