My point is that a course of action for résumé writing might/should
anticipate the potential contexts of use. This ranges from databases, to the
'HR bozo', to the hiring manager, to the domain expert who will likely be
asked to review the résumé for its content (once it has passed its buzz word
compliancy test). One, or all of the steps here may or /may not/ be included
on any given engagement.
It's so difficult to anticipate these things, especially when you, or in
this case I, will be submitting a résumé to huge corporations (like AOL) and
to small web dev firms (which begs the question of writing custom résumés).
By virtue of attempting to broadcast my résumé to the widest audience as
quickly as possible (I'm going to be laid off on Monday) I've gone the route
of the narrative with linked examples of work.
If I were going to be freelancing, I think I would go the route of the case
