Quote from: Americangirl on August 02, 2007, 10:44:53 AMHi there Pat..... Looks like you have been plugging away on the Resume.. Can I add my two cents for what it is worth. You have quite a few Accomplishments, working with kids in your community is AWESOME!! But if I were a sponsor looking at a Resume, I would personally want to know in those statistcs about you as a person, The Number of people at these events you fish or do seminars at, and most importantly what you as an angler can do for me.. The Exposure that is available to me and the number of people you can teach, educate and introduce my product too. Sponsors receive thousands of emails with Anglers (like U and Me) telling our best fish stories and us putting those statistics on paper, after a while I am sure it all starts looking the same. Stand out.... EX.Instead of writing a section ABOUT ME:How about THIS IS WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU: Exposure on stage, on the water, off the water presentations, education, seminars, shows, through the media, on your website, in the news, participating in other events that will also gain exposure... what your future goals are as an angler, how you can push and promote those products locally and nationwide. SALE SALE SALE those products....having the highest finish on our resume doesn't sell their products, but showing them you are a good salesman, teacher and educator does......Also A picture is worth a thousand words. I think it is great when anglers dedicate their time to our youth, that is what it is all about.. But instead of taking up 500 words explaining what you do, how about a photo of you with these kids. it speaks volumes and is less for them to read on a resume... Stand Out my friend........Best of luck
