resume writing

[ #26989 ]

To start off, I'm not looking for a new job but that doesn't stop me from window shopping.

The other day, I did run across a cool one on jobs.perl.org which made me think. I want to send them a resume... unfortunately I haven't really kept it up in the last few (when does few turn into many?) years. So this weekend I started to create one. Well, let me tell you, I'm really out of practice with it. I'm trying to distill a big chuck of time into a few sentences. I can understand why you would pay someone. It is a disappointment to take 2+ years of design, coding and such and turn it into "built web application with HTML::Mason, Perl, mod_perl and Javascript".... the blood sweat and curse words are completely lost. The fights over badly complex UI design and crazy marketing ideas are gone. The nice part of it is that I've seen how much I've done in the last few years... that is quite cool and makes me feel warm and fuzzy. :)
