The To Do List

It's only about 4 months until the move.

It's beginning to scare me a bit.

So, I'm making a To Do list of things I want to have accomplished before I move. Currently it involves three things.

  1. Service Jeff (my car)

  2. Get the three stereos I have sitting at home serviced/repaired (not much sense it taking electrical appliances that don't work down to Melbourne with me)

  3. Do up my Resume


Now, that last one has me a little bit stumped. How do you mention a name change on a resume? It has to go on, due to all my qualifications being in the old name, and all the previous places I've worked at being under the old name, but how do you present it?

Interesting...

You could always put a copy of the deed poll in your cv and use "previously". I thought for a bit you could use nee, but that appears to be specific to females...

In the personal details, under name put your current name, then on the next line put "Birth name:............."

That should cover the start, then under previous employment put the line (As ................)

This means that if they check with the employer they know which name to ask about.

I've put an AKA line in under my name.
then in my employment history, I have inserted when I changed my name in between the job details.

1997-2000: Systems Analyst

2000: struck by a radioactive fruit cake, and transformed into Random Jones! Man About Town, Servicer of Jeff, Fighter for Justice.

2000-present: Still a systems analyst. But also, a superhero.

Hi, just found your entry via Melbourne goths friends list. I've also had to deal with this issue, (l have one uni qualification in one name and my second in another). In the personal details of my resume l have put

Name : Real Name (former name XXXXX XXXXX)

Unfortunately being a woman people seem to assume you change your name because you are married *sigh* But yes, you will have to make it clear that if they contact any former workplaces (where you used a former name) they are clear on what your name was at the time. Luckily all my previous jobs under my old name are so long ago it wouldn't be an issue.

Being fairly drunk, I'm pretty sure that I had a pet banana at one time called Geoff, that was telepathic...i think...did i mention the booze?

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
