I remember sending out 400 resumes when I graduated from college and went to work in Subway at Lake Boone Trail Shopping Center making deli sandwiches circa 1986. I hope I never have to send another resume in this life. Methinks the friends you meet and connections you make will get you the jobs as opposed to the resumes you send.

Just wait until you form your own consulting company. Then your
resume becomes your job title.
