I'd take that away. If I was an employer I'd think Creative thinker means hippy pot head.

3 things that help:
10pt times new roman (12-14 for your name)
small margins (.5 inches or less)
6pt font for blank lines

it sounds crammed, but do it right and it will still look very good

I just got a call and an interview tomorrow for a job that updates classifieds on a website.

He wants to interview tomorrow at 11 and I told him I could. After I hung up the phone I realized I had some questions for him.

Before I go down there and waste his time or mine, I should have asked if my school schedule would fit in to their plans. The job posting said students are welcome as well as interns for college credit. However, I cannot work 2 full days since I go to school for 12 hours on Monday and Wed.

Should I just go down there anyways and mention it in person, or should I call him back and say I have some questions I forgot to ask.

I am so new at this I feel like a kid asking a girl to the dance.

Call him cause you don't wanna waste your time. However, you might wanna just go and get experience. Being good at interviews gets you jobs no matter what. So Practice makes perfect

If they are expecting students then they will not be surprised. you may not get the job if your sked deosn't fit as well as another applicant's, but not mentioning it on the call of little to no import. save the questions for the interview unless you really need to ask them beforehand. it's never good to run out of questions in a lower-level interview of 30 minutes or so.

I know that I should have my resume with me when I show up, but what I don't know is should I have a cover page or is that only when I first submit a resume to a company?

I doubt this job is something that I will get, even if I were hired I may not take it because its more hours a week than I want to work.

I just want to go on the interview to gain the experience and who knows maybe they may like me and find another position that I may fit into or know of another place hiring.

You never know.

Here is the job http://phoenix.backpage.com/employment/classifieds/ViewAd?oid=oid%3A299519&name=miscellaneous%20jobs

I don't know if this one is the same or just similar http://phoenix.backpage.com/employment/classifieds/ViewAd?oid=oid%3A298350&name=computer%2Ftechnical%20jobs

we're looking for someone who knows his or her way around a computer (basic windows applications), is comfortable navigating on the web, is cool with some data entry, thinks outside the box, comfortable reviewing adult content (sometimes), likes a super laid back business environment, bathes and is an overall good dude or gal.


Any job that mentions bathing and uses the word "dude" and "gal" is my kind of job!
