( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

How do I know you are competent? I review your history of published work and community involvement. If you don't have a history, then you get dumped into the "check these out if I have time" pile. Or the circular file, depending on the resume. Resumes are mostly crap. Why should I wade through loads of resume-speak when I can read what you really said?

I think it's great that you can figure things out on your own. That's not the only thing I look for though. It's more important to me that you (1) know when to ask for help, (2) know how to ask a question, and (3) listen carefully.

In a highly connected, easily searchable world, depending on a resume alone might put you at a competitive disadvantage. You might want to rethink that.

My wife is a science teacher. She routinely checks student work with google. She finds "unattributed quoted material" amazingly fast. Verifying Perl experience is a very similar problem.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
