Resume Critique

Hey gang,

I’m looking to move up in my career, and on the hunt for a new job. I
got my resume together, and was hoping to get some feedback.

Let me know your thoughts.

Re: Resume Critique

Mike;

If your looking for a management role I would talk a bit more about your
experience in that role. You mention being a lead but don’t talk about any
of the nitty gritty of team building, goal development, communications,
project management, process management, etc etc.

Also if you’ve had any experience in working with clients to develope
project scope and functionality requirements you might want to mention that
it’s a useful and some what rare skill in programmers.
