what you want to express.  If you have a string of jobs that don’t seem to make sense, look again.  Were those random acts of employment project-based or skill-based?  My resume starts with video editing.  I went from skilled job to skilled job within the broadcast news industry.  When I shifted outside that box I went into training others.  In reflecting on my work life I realized I’m ultimately a communications professional helping others to express their vision.

What is the basis for the story of your life’s work?  What solution do you provide?
