Two things I like about my resume

You can see a link to it on the left side (if you’re reading this on my blog, rather than Facebook).

The first thing I like is the style. I take no credit for this: it’s a template that comes with Pages plus some minor tweaks of my own.

The second thing I like is the blurbs. I spent a few days chasing some up before putting the resume into wider circulation. The idea of having “testimonials” embedded in marketing materials is as old as dirt; but so far as I know it hasn’t been used on resumes before. Yet resumes are probably the most intimate and important bit of “brochureware” in a software engineer’s life. It can’t hurt to jazz it up a little with fuzzy subjectivity.

    Hey, some of us read it through an RSS feed, so not on either FB OR on your blog! :-p
