I haven't worked a full-time job in over 18 years or even a part-time job in 7 years, because life circumstances prevented me from doing so, but things have changed & now I can work a full-time job again.
I found a job that I really would like to have, one that I would most likely keep until I retire in 30 years, but I'm not sure I'm qualified for it b/c of my lack of paid work in recent years. During my time off, I did still do volunteer work that was very similar to the job I'm interested in, plus I have personal experience handling the specific types of situations the job entails, just not to the extent/scope I would be doing if I obtained the position.
The ad provided a contact name & number and requested a resume. Would you just send in a resume & hope for the best or would you call first & see if the person would talk to you about the position and give you an interview before sending in a resume (mind you, there isn't much to put on the resume)? I honestly feel that if I could talk to the person, they'd understand that I can do this job, something my resume isn't going to reflect at all.
