Why do you want your resume reviewed?
I work in the civil space program and there is a lot of uncertainty in our business. I want to be certain that I am putting my best face forward in the event that I have to look for work or I come across an opportunity that I don’t want to miss. I am also in a situation where I expect most of my current work to be transferred to a non-profit organization over the next year. I don’t know exactly what that means for my career.
What is your current situation (employed, seeking, etc.)?
I am currently employed as a support contractor for the ISS Program. My position is stable at the moment, but I have no guarantees it will stay that way. I have been looking for other opportunities.
Where are you in the process (submitted resumes, applied for jobs, etc.)?
I have interviewed at two commercial space companies.
What’s the main issue you’re encountering?
At the first company, I was told that my background was “too political” and that my resume didn’t adequately describe what I’ve done. At the second company, I was told I am at the top of their list, but the sub-contracts they expected to get have been delayed. I don’t want to rest on my laurels because the second interview went better.
