I'm trying to get my resume together to apply for a job, a job I've wanted for a long time and they finally have two openings. BUT I have no freaking clue what to do about my resume. Here's my work history, or lack there of:

* 2002 - 2005 I worked random jobs. Longest lasted 6 months and there were large gaps between them all.

* Nov 2005 - Feb 2007 I was in the Army National Guard. Got out because I found out I was pregnant.

* Feb 2007 - Jan 2009 I was a SAHM

* Jan 2009 - July 2012 I started and completed the Pharmacy Tech diploma program at local college, but never worked at a tech (except my 3 months of clinicals for school).

* Fall 2012 - Spring 2013 I was the Cookie Mom for my daughter's Girl Scout troop (no idea how to write that into a resume. Does it go in work experience? Do I literally write "Cookie Mom" or some other title?)

* Aug 2013 - Present I've been working on my BS in Communications


I know I haven't just been sitting around eating ding dongs on my couch all day and going to school is great and a wonderful addition to my resume, but when I actually write it all out, it looks so weak, especially with so little work history. I went to a class offered here on post and it wasn't helpful at all and a huge waste of time. How in the world do I make it look good? Is there a service I can pay to write my history into an awesome resume? I feel so damn lost trying to make myself look good to a potential employer.

What kind of skills does this new job require? Service? Pharmaceutical? Writing?

It's a job in the housing division for the Army. Assigning housing to soldiers and their families when they arrive, out processing, scheduling cleanings and repair work, being a go-between for the Army and the owners of the leased housing, etc. It's not my dream job, but it has amazing hours, benefits, pay, and the experience will help a lot later down the road.

I need not suffer in silence while I can still moan, whimper and complain.

If this isn't what I consider soulmate crap, I don't know what is.

or you could present your qualifications in terms of skills you have and problems you have solved. There are several ways to present your skills and experience.

Google "functional resume" and see what comes up.
