    I thought these remarks were particularly helpful [regarding what a resume IS and ISN’T]:
    “It is a mistake to think of your resume as a history of your past, as a personal statement or as some sort of self expression. Sure, most of the content of any resume is focused on your job history. But write from the intention to create interest, to persuade the employer to call you. If you write with that goal, your final product will be very different than if you write to inform or catalog your job history.”

    Create interest. IMHO, that’s the key.

    I also liked that website because they said it was OK to deviate from protocol, and to be witty. So my opening line now is: “Porsche mechanic of the English language.”

    I see you more as sculptor than a mechanic but it’s clever enough to catch the eye.

    I’m just using this unobtrusive place to test once again the use of italics. Please ignore. ;-)

  5. mockturtle said,

    Well, I see [i] still [i/p] haven’t got it!

  6. mockturtle said,

    OK–I see I stillhaven’t got it.

  7. mockturtle said,

    I think I just about have it! :-)

  8. mockturtle said,

    No, I don’t. :-(

  9. mockturtle said,

    I’ll try using another method.

  10. mockturtle said,

    Wow, it worked! :-)

  11. mockturtle said,

    OK–now I’m trying the shorter version of italics to see if it works. I thought I had tried this before but maybe not.

  12. mockturtle said,

    Yep. Thanks, Annie! ;-)
