Resume Building and Writing
I am a 24 year old Leukemia and Stem Cell Transplant survivor. It has been almost two years since my diagnosis and I am lost. Finding a job is difficult because I am still immunosuppressed and do not have the ability to work full time due to energy levels, doctor appointments, etc. I am at the point in my recovery where I am feeling the need to be productive and work towards something but I have no idea what direction to go or where to start. I was diagnosed a few months after graduating college so I have not had the chance to get my career started until now. I received a degree in marketing but am not interested in sitting behind a computer and doing entry level online advertising, which is what most marketing students end up doing. I did not do any internships while in school and have a job gap of 3 years on my resume because of my illness. My entire life was geared around action sports and being outside but due to complications from the treatment, most of the activities I loved doing are out the window now. I feel like I need to reinvent myself and discover new things I love doing that are accommodating to my new lifestyle and I can incorporate into my work. My resume needs help and so do I.
