    Well I was talking with Sazar about jobs and dell and such. Come to the conclusion that my resume needs a bit of work.

    Fixing it up, more details and etc. Said I should post here and see what can be done.

    So here you go....

    I would change the wording in "Web Browsing Software" to something a bit more point descriptive, that sounds like you are skilled at surfing the net.


    :D

    just an FYI, you may want to strip off some of the phone numbers and addresses when posting in a public forum.. especially yours and your references..

    edit: I removed the attachment for now.. usually not a good idea to post your number (or your friends/references numbers - especially if you didn't ask them if it was okay to post a phone number publically).

    edit2: feel free to reattach after you scrub some of the personal info out...

    Didn't even think of that, thanks.

    Done and done.


    Any more tips, help etc.

    Thanks

    Looks pretty good. Is "First Page 2006" supposed to be Front Page? Also, not sure if Pascal is even worth mentioning, but I suppose it could get a good laugh! :)

    Send the resume to jneville AT tcml DOT com tomorrow and I'll take a look at it tomorrow and play with it.


    (I'm a recruiter and write resumes daily.)

    No, First Page 2000 is another HTML program.

    Yea, I thought Pascal was worth it since its really the only programming i know.

    Is programming something you want to do? If its not then its probably not worth putting it on. It does of course show a certain level of skill and understanding of IT, but it sometimes helps to target your skills matrix to a particular type of job for each application.

    Alright, no I would love to learn more about it and be good at it, but not something I want to do.

    I always thought its just better to put all skills up. I will change that then.

    It really depends.

    Having an additional bullet point that you are proficient in and are able to discuss when engaged is an excellent asset.

    If it is a generic talent taking up useful space on your page, dump it. If, on the other hand, it's one of those talents that could be a differentiator between you and some other bloke (or gal), why not either leave it up or, better yet, integrate it with some other section to allow it to flow.

    Cheers.
