Calling All Geeks
Want to critique my resume for me? Especially if you know much about Java development and Agile methodologies. Comment with your email, or email me at renniekins at livejournal dot com, and I'll send it to you.

Hmm, maybe I should post a copy online...

It's not a bad idea posting it online, I get calls every so often from headhunters that have found it via google, etc.

In 2000 that was a problem, I was getting many calls a day <waxes nostalgically>. These days it's not so bad, I usually get 2-3 per week from my website or my 6-month old post on Monster.

But anyway, yeah I can look it over. I'm more C/C++ and embedded, but I've done a fair amount of XP/Agile stuff.

Resumes, Blogs and Google

Many recruiters and hiring managers have taken to doing google searches on individuals. Now the blogs that people post in their "private" time are being used in considering interviews and hiring.

While it may be illegal to ask certain questions during an interview or base decisions on characteristics associated with members of protected classes, blogs often provide very personal data or insights into ones personal data that could be used against the potential candidate.

The moral of the story, be cautious what goes in a blog or do a good job of disguising your identity.

I assume you'll give me a hardcopy if you want.
