It's important to have an accurate resume

Trying to find a "real" job after 16 years of having a "surreal" job, can be somewhat challenging.  I was talking to a friend about writing a resume, (something I have very little experience at) she said that the most important thing in a resume is making sure it is accurate and up to date...

SO here goes...

I only have two employees, I don't have animals and I can't sew. Aside from that, our resumes are quite similar.

It's so frustrating trying to find a "real" job.
