Recently, I updated my résumé. I also found a position on indeed.com that I applied for, but more on that later.
This post, I simply want to explain why over the years my linkedin.com résumé reads more like a summary of my skills, however also offered links to WiredPages and other site areas which provided real examples of the type of software support and web design I offered.
I felt a widget was worth a thousand words-- or a least a two page résumé of detailed work experience.
Over the years, I received a great many accolades for the work I did on WiredPages, however because of security issues-- I do not now maintain the site online. That said-- I do have the code and can easily recreate the many widgets I custom designed and developed for the site. That said, I repeat- I really need to move the site to a more secure hosting platform.
Late in my tenure with Rockwell [my last position as a defense contractor], we responded to a RFP from the Navy. I have working [draft] copies of several of our résumés which were completed/updated and submitted to the Navy [on earlier RFPs too]. The illustration below shows part of my draft résumé-- and that of John Newcomb's, the program manager. Yes, I would have also been part of the staff providing input for our submission to the RFP.
Why am I providing this information?
- Preliminary data, for a later post [that I really do not want to write].
- There was a lot of abstract noise when I recently, uploaded my detailed résumé to indeed.com. The "I did not know that"-- should not have been coming from the sources I was given. I also had immediate responses to the résumé which if needed, I will also provide.
- Question as to who doubts my credentials even at this late date.
- Provides a timeline that can be traversed and found credible.
- Provide a bit of discussion on why my résumé reads as it does.
Indeed.com has the detailed version of my current résumé. I am hoping I will need no further entries on this topic-- however may in the future, post photographs of my actual résumé.
