So I'm going to attempt to apply for a job at UC Merced.

Surprisingly, there aren't all that many admin jobs available in town. I would have thought there'd be a bit more. But, like everyone else, blame the economy. 18% unemployment here in town, I suppose its to be expected.

Anyway, I've been consulting with an acquaintance of mine who works out at the UC and who has been going over my resume and cover letter. It looks and sounds alright, but its definitely a bit of a curve away from straight forward and business/legal professional sounding. I've been advised, that I want to target my resume and cover letter to sound a bit more academic leaning instead. I don't know. I'm a bit unsure as far as that goes.

So, anyone online right now and willing to give it a once over? I think I need fresh eyes. I've been looking over this stuff the last few days. I'm starting to see the same thing over and over.
