This is the final blog on the archer’s resume. Are you has happy as this archery parent is to be completed? This time was beneficial. It allowed time to review, research and analysis for the updated archer’s resume that will be needed for the 2018 season. It is not too early to start. It is better to have it well organized and done. There are times that situations arise, that having one ready and available to send. Tournaments are times when relationships are developing. It is possible to have a company request that you send in your resume. No panicking or, worse, throwing one together without thought and consideration to the companies.
It is IMPORTANT, to rewrite the introduction part of the resume each time. It is easy to cut and paste, but there could be an error that may mention another company. Or it mentions equipment that the companies does not manufacture. It is not hard to make these errors. (head down)…Yes, it happen once at the beginning…don’t be this archery parent…do better, learn from the mistakes. PLEASE. LOL
