The Road Not Taken

This year I came to the crossroads of career paths and after much thought decided to take the road less traveled.

By: Cynda Alexander and Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a career path,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where 8 to 5 met freelance;

Then took the attitude, of laissez-faire,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was time and I wanted freedom;
Thinking as for that the passing of time
Had worn me really down of the game,

And both that morning equally lay
In my career path trodden black.
So, I kept the first for another day!
Knowing how 8 to 5 leads on to 60 hours,
I doubted if I should ever go back.

I shall be telling this with a smile
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

I am a highly successful professional and technical writer that has produced artifacts for many different industries. As a technical writer, I have produced a variety of artifacts in many different industries. The user guide I created for a scoreboard company is in gymnasiums all over the world! I've been published by higher education publications for my work and achievements in helping non-traditional students finish their education. I also have a greeting card line that will never make me rich but makes me happy to think that my words touched or tickled someone enough that they paid for them. And my name will be forever immortalized on the back of a greeting card in someone’s dresser drawer, forever! For the last ten years, I worked as a career and education coach in higher education, adult education and correctional facilities. As a professional resume writer that is very knowledgeable about incorporating powerful keywords relevant to your industry. I will review and align your work history, areas of expertise and achievements to highlight your strengths and experience. I have written resumes for a multitude of fields - from A to Z (including military to civilian) - and levels of positions - entry-level to executive resumes and CVs. My personal philosophy is to always Pay It Forward. I never deny someone a professional resume based on the ability to pay. In my spare time, I am usually in my kayak on one of the beautiful lakes we have here with my daughters and dogs. Best Regards, Cynda Alexander
