In April I accepted a position as Assistant Co-ordinator for a Distance Education Network that provids access to education and training opportunities in remote locations.
As it happens the Site Co-ordinator will be taking maternity leave for a year starting next month. I have been training to replace her since August but have been recently advised that I will have to formally go through the 'application process' from resume submission to interview. The HO has known this since June but has only now decided to do an internal/external posting of the position.
I know that without resume assistance I can make it to the interview by virtue of the experience I have, however, there are several other 'assistants' in neighbouring communities that have considerable more time invested as employees. There is also the added incentive of more than double the current assistant wage which would also work to ease relocation concerns.
My background is rooted in more than 15 years of business ownership and management and more recently in academics with 3yrs of university and adult education and training.
How do I approach a promotion position in my resume and cover?
I've never seen a sample or template that adresses this. It may turn out to be office politics but why chance it?
I lost 5 years of employment due to illness and absolutley love this job but will have to find a different FT position if I'm passed over.
Any help or suggestions or assistance would be greatfully appreciated.
Thanks in advance, kath
