Oxnard's Only Independent News Source.....

Oxnard Journal -----------------------

"Police Commission".

We are dropping our news item on the Police Commission. NO - I was not harrassed by Brian, the coal-black Motorcycle cop, nor did I get the usual hang-up phone calls after I do an article on the Oxnard Police. NO ONE CARED to even send an e-blurb in support or against the Proposition of the Commission. No e-mails, & that is really odd.

Either Everyone Is Scared I will forward their messages to Art Lopez - DIRECT, or we have severe apathy (Non-Caring). I suspect Apathy because the Journal got 6031 hits in August (an average of 250.8 since August 27th.

OK, Will Wait for More News.

Your Editor will not be able to attend Oxnard Council Meetings on Tuesday evenings for a while. I'm taking a Conversational Spanish class @ Oxnard Adult School. It is a tremendous class and I hope (espero) to have speaking skills for when I run for City Council in 2002. The Oxnard Adult School is an interesting campus with many remedial and GED Courses, but also Nursing and some general fun classes, like the Spanish Class. There is still time to enroll if you do it this week.

Thanks for Visiting the Oxnard Journal - Will be waiting for news to happen - remember I work 40 hours per week and this journal depends on your input, my keyboarding, and most of all, our collective interest in making Oxnard, THE BEST CUIDAD in CONDADO del VENTURA,

{ Oxnard - Sept. 01 }

Pa Ventura Mentioned the need for a Police Commission in His Saturday Star Column. More citizens are taking an active approach to starting a commission. Word of warning would be to have a commission made up of citizens, not business or legal interests.

The next meeting of the Citizens' Commission to Evaluate Police Conduct is September 12. Stay tuned for details on when and where. Sunny and Sean are spearheading this one, they are looking are re-activating the Peace Murals again to make us aware of the need to listen to our young people and to beautify Oxnard with murals.

Oxnard needs to decide whether it wants an interface or ombudsman to serve between the Police and the Council. It's a hot issue and won't easily disappear. The Purpose of a Commission is to help the Police, not to hinder their operations.

What are your feelings on getting a Police Commission - No Need to include your name or e-mail if you prefer NOT TO---- Comments will go to the Editor......

R E S U M E ~~~ TIPS ~~~~~

The thought of writing or re-writing your resume can seem like an insurmountable task, and sometimes even intimidating.

Think of your resume as your marketing brochure.

Think of yourself as a product with unique features and benefits, and the employer or recruiter is a customer who needs this product. Your resume should be like a sales tool, telling the reader why they should want to meet you for demonstration of who you are.

Use your resume to get the interview. Don't go into detail about every item on your resume.

The purpose of your resume is to generate enough interest in you to have an employer contact you for an interview.

Again, think sales brochure. No one has ever been hired because they had a really detailed resume.

Use bullet points.

In the body of your resume, use bullets with short sentences rather than lengthy paragraphs. Resumes are read quickly. This bulleted sentence format makes it easier for someone to quickly scan your resume and still absorb the contents.

Use numbers, dollars, and percentages. Numbers, dollars, and percentages stand out in the body of a resume and grab the reader's attention. Think along the lines of number of people supervised, increased sales by $X amount of dollars, decreased departments payroll budget by X% percentage points.

Lead with your strengths.

Since resumes are typically reviewed in less than a minute, take the time to determine which bullet points most strongly support the type of job you are applying for. Put those strong points first where they are more apt to be read.

Pump up the positive.

Leave off negatives and irrelevant points off of your resume.

Stick to the point. Your accomplishments related to your career history is what the reader is looking for. Irrelevant personal information is not. You will not get an interview because you are a champion clog dancer.

Get your resume "out there."

Think of getting your resume out as a numbers game. The more the better. Apply for more jobs than less. Part of getting your resume out there is combining all of the resources that are available to you. Not only do you want to send your resume off to individual jobs that you see on the jobboards or in the newspaper, but you want to post your resume to as many resume databases as possible. Get your resume in front of as many Search Firms as possible.

Consider using a resume distribution service, which will email your resume to 1000's of recruiters in your industry for a small fee

Good Luck with your Search........
