    How does it look that I currently have a job and do freelance work?
    Hmm. My suggestion would be to separate your resumes into two different career areas. Focus your drafting resume in that area, and likewise for Driving. It may simplify the interview process. If you are freelance, can I ask how much drafting you have done since 2003 and up to now?

    I've completed about 14 jobs from Oct. 09, till now (03 was just a number I tossed in). Varying from a ramp and guardrail, to schools and supermarkets, updates/retrofits, all kinds of things. From about 3 drawings to about 50.

    Ok- then you definitely need a separate resume and portfolio - highlighting your key experiences apart from the driving jobs will make a big difference. (the driving work I'm assuming is primarly income and not career driven.) If you have portfolio that showcases your work it can really make an impact on the clients you are trying to attract. 14 jobs in 3 years is quite a bit! Focus on what you are most proud of. What of those jobs makes you feel the most pride? What presented the greatest challenge and delivered you the most satisfaction in completing? It will be easy to talk about these projects during the interview process if you have the most of yourself invested in them.

    Then create a resume with detailed info- and have an option available for anyone interested to view drawings from your portfolio. Don't print them out en masse. Be selective.

    I met with someone about a month ago concerning a potential job. I'm considering calling this person as to remind them of my availability, but I'm finding I feel awkward about it. Should I feel this way, or should I call?

    The last time I had an interview was in 1998. I was called by the post office, but that was nothing really, more like a formality. The lady barely even made eye contact.

    If the person you met with said they would follow up with you and didn't, then you can certainly follow up to ask what the outcome was of the interview process, and whether or not a candidate was selected.. That way you aren't going to seem desperate, and you should get the answers you are looking for.

    Interviews have changed a lot since the 90's, and behavioral interviewing has become quite commonplace. The questions ask you to describe a factual scenario from a given situation - ie) "Tell me about a time you managed a difficult client, and how you handled it." They are looking for a response detailing what you did/how you did it/and what the outcome was. You can ask in advance of an interview if you should anticipate behavioral questions - and if so, I can help you in preparing for that.

    I have an English Degree and I've almost got a Journalism certificate. I would love doing the 'social media manager' thing. I've done a lot of the self promotion through a website I work at (gamerwok.com). The nice thing about the program I'm in right now is that they include public relations classes since that's pretty much the dark side of journalism anyways.

    Marketing yourself as a Corporate Social Media Coordinator is great right now because it's something companies do need, but they don't even know it yet. I think most savvy HR teams would respond to a resume that listed that as a job title or target! Sports team communications would be so much fun. You may also want to try CPRail. I know they have a communications team - as do some of the board organizations like ERCB or AUC.

    Thanks. I spoke to someone at the ERCB about this stuff and the guy seemed interested. I actually wrote an article about energy and a council committee that the AUC was loosely involved in and I never even thought to look at jobs. I feel like there are many things I haven't thought of but need to look into.

    CP Rail would be interesting because there would likely be good travel opportunities.

    I actually thought I was too late to the social media thing until I volunteered at the Mac's Midget tournament this year (They did a great job of it). A lot of people are just learning to get into it still. I thought as soon as my mom got twitter I was late to the party with working at it.

    You aren't late to the party at all! Companies are only just starting to embrace what social networking can mean and how critical it can be to success. Mayor Naheed Nenshi's campaign was centered around social networking and it worked famously. It's a strong example for companies to follow, particularly when the purchasing demographic are the prime social networking user base.
