Hm.. I dunno.. I've done my share of assembly code.. it isn't pretty!

I definitely need to broaden my horizons if the job market for ProIV is limited.
Thanks all for your encouragement, and light-hearted remarks ! :eek:

Yeah.. erm, probably by the Crocodile Unions.. heh..

Ironically, I'd think they'd be needed "down under" too, aye mate?

So lets leave the insecurities of the IT industry and join Steve Irwin and the gang for a more rewarding vocation and sideline business of shoes and handbags.

Unfortunately the wife is in OKC, and the alligators are not known for
their hospitality nor committing to a relationship other than a meal, aye?

I'm still looking for a 'how to' on how to pick a resume writer, if they're
worth the extra bucks.. anyone ever try one and get great results? I wouldn't
mind a referral; If anything, I could probably use a 'review' of my resume and
see what areas I need to clarify, simplify, or expand upon..

Chill out about your resume (CV).

I've interviewed a lot of people and read many CV's.

Here's what I think you're CV should be like:

1) 2 pages (max 3)
2) Contact information on page 1
3) Show key skills on page 1
4) Employment history. Most recent first and preferably without gaps. If it has gaps, guess what I'm going to ask you at interview time.
5) Brief education summary if you have plenty of experience. If you're a first timer, I'd expect a more detailed education history.
6) Should be well laid out, easy to read and not have any spelling or grammatical errors.
7) If you need to fill a page with something then put your hobbies and interests in. You can also give a profile of yourself too. Don't worry too much about this one. It's your skills I'm initially interested in. I can find out about you at the interview stage.

Tailor the CV to the company you are applying for. Match your skill set to their needs. This takes more time, but is definitely worth the effort. You may also wish to have a blanket CV which you send to anyone.

Thank you, Steve..

I have a better idea now on what to focus on.
I guess I was feeling a little anxious..

Btw, that was my post prior; I didn't realize my home account wasn't logged in..

Moving onward..

On the note of resume touchups, I found a decent, professional service via www.rezamaze.com for those interested.

So far, I have found them to be quite favorable.

If you take them up, perhaps mention my name and we can share
in some possible kickbacks? :) They appear to be located in Austin, TX and provide
the end-user with toll-free support and practically answer on the first ring. B)
