CV (Curriculum Vitae) of a SAHM?

Salam to all,

Lately I'm busy trying to google some part suitable part time jobs on the internet. It somehow reminded
me that I must have a new CV if I want to apply a job. Hmmmm. The last time I applied a job was about 5 years ago! And I almost forgot how to write a CV even though I used to teach my ex-students on how to write a good CV.

Somehow I got an idea of trying to write up a CV of a SAHM. Well, why not. Since I reckon being
a SAHM, WAHM or SOHO, we can have a CV to show other people our qualifications, abilities, skills and experiences.

All right. Let's take a look at a sample of a CV and then we compare it with my version of SAHM CV.

How about that? Was it a nice attempt? I would like to see if other SAHM or WAHM or SOHO or FTWM would like to 
write up a CV like that or maybe a very extensive one! hehe. Of course we don't need any CV to apply for all the jobs 
that I've mentioned just now. However, it would be good to see if we can really put it on paper and see. Maybe who 
knows you can print up your CV and frame it and put it in a special place in your house! How about that? 
Is it a good idea? If you are interested to do an entry about this, please tell me so. I would be happy to see and read it.
