Old Mar 5th, 2003, 10:27 AM        would you hire me?
Objective:

To obtain a position of resposibility within a stable orginization that will allow me to put my strong management and customer service skills to operation in a competitive work enviroment. The ideal job would allow for both team and individual achievement, with plenty of room for personal and professional growth.

Summary of Work Experince:

As a Managed Network Services Project Manager for Sprint I held a position of great responsibility. With little supervision I coordinated the complex task of implementating managed Wide Area Networks (WAN) for both international and domestic customers with an average account billing over ten thousand dollars a month. My duties required that I have exceptional customer service skills, and that I put them to use helping to ensure that the technical designs agreed upon by the customer computer engineers, and the Sprint computer engineers were completed without flaw, within budget, and on time. As the implementation of the customer networks proceeded I provided detailed status reports to my management, sales professionals, customers, and national and international vendors. Settled customer billing disputes and organized weekly meetings to bring together all the disparate elements involved in the WAN implemenation process to foster clear lines of communication. Utilized multiple computer software programs (Microsoft Office suite of programs, specialized data base programs) to provide total coverage of customer accounts.

In my role as Overnight Merchandise Flow Manager for Target Stores I was responsible for a crew of 35 people as well as the over night security of a multi million dollar department store. I handled the scheduling of all night employees. In assigning duties to members of my team, I held sole responsibility for ensuring that every individual understood their assignments and provided supervision, employee review, and career counseling. Teamed with members of the Human Resources division I conducted interviews and wrote position announcements to fill vacant positions. As only manager in the store at night I was part of an aggressive campiagn to prevent stock shrinkage from employee theft, and handled daily money drops with armoured security serivices. In addtion to the daunting task of moving at least two semi trailers of merchandise from stockroom to sale floor in an eight hour period, I also was charged with seasonal and sale display updates. In this capacity I designed window displays, and created end cap, and in store stock dispalys, as well as followed stock display directives issued by the store manager and corporate headquarters.

In the United States Marines I worked as an Aviation Weapons Team Leader. This position was a culmination of a ten year career and was a great honor to hold. I supervised Marines in groups of up to fifteen men in the maintenance of the weapons systems of the F-18 fighter aircraft. My duites included not only the maintenace of the the physical hardware of the aircraft such as the 20mm Vulcan gun system and missile/bomb racks, but the trouble shooting of electrical and computer systems on the aircraft. I held the responsibility of assuring that all maintenance preformed by my Marines was completed properly and conducted Quality Assurance and Safe for Flight inspections. Included with my maintenance duties I worked on the flightline supervisng the highly dangerous mission of loading missiles, bombs, and gun ammunition on aircraft. Once all weapons were loaded, then the task of supervising the safe launch and recovery of the aircraft on flight missions became the primary focus of my position. I was awarded a Navy Achievement medal for performing my duties above and beyond the already exacting standards required not only by the Marine Corps, but also by the inherent danger of handling high explosives and being responsible for the lives of my fellow Marines, the fighter pilots, as well as a thirty million dollar aircraft.

Education:

* Three years of progressive management training through University of Excellence curriculumn offered to select Sprint employees.

* Two years study at Costal Carolina Community College in Jacksonville NC.

* Two years study at Southern Illinois University in Jacksonville NC.

* Attended United States Marine Non-Commissioned Officers Academy.

* Completed over thirty Marine Corps Institute courses ranging from Anti-Terrorisim training to Mathematics, and several mechanical reapair courses including HVAC systems and personal computer hardware.

Throughout my working career I have attempted to take advantage of every educational opportunity available to me through my employers so that I could attain a strong skill set as a manager, and to develop myself as a person. I enjoy the opportunity to aquire new skills, and learn very quickly.

ok, please comment on my resume. not so much for spelling and duplication errors (like putting the twice or some shit), more for what you think content wise, or if there are gramattical errors.

please tell me if there is anything confusing, that could be stated better, or that you feel could be better explained.

i appreciate your help on this. sometimes when writing these stupid resumes it is hard to take a cold hard look at the darn thing and whittle it down to a quick, easy read.



also tell me how you feel about the style. i have been told that the narrative style is becoming very popular because it is easier to read and does not get cluttered up with dates and such that matter little to a manager conducting an interview (only HR wonks care about dates, or so my experience ha been).

thank you for your time

I am no authority on the subject, but it seems very professional and well-written to me. You use the narrative style very well.

To get picky with grammar, the sentences beginning with "Settled" and "Utilized" are not sentences as they lack a subject. It should be "I settled" and "I utilized" to be correct. You did the same thing in the next paragraph too.

I would actually ditch the "I" everywhere. Also, you should focus more on accomplishments in each of your positions as opposed to responsibilities. You can either add a section above experience titled something like "Key Accomplishments" and bullet out related projects and accomplishments, or you can work them into your individual job experience paragraphs.

Although it is technically not proper English, I like doing away with the I's completely. Go with it.

Ironically enough, I am amassing a sqadron of F-18s at this very moment. I always wanted to be a fighter pilot, but I was just to big, and my eyesight was crappy.

As for the content, it looks good to me, but I am not an HR goon. I would say that you should put the "I"s in, because I am a grammar snob. But either way, the entire document shows that you can write coherently.

ok, I'm out of words.

most resumes don't utilize paragraph form period.
but it's perfectly acceptable and even recommended to use fragments that begin with action verbs.

I have never seen the narrative style used before, George, but it looks good to me. I keep hearing over and over though that a resume should be no longer than a single page, and this seems like it would be a fair bit longer than that.

thanks everyone. i kept the I's, i dont particularly care one way or the other about them, but i liked the way the resume read when i reviewed it, so with a few minor exceptions and changes this is pretty much what i eneded up with.

and proto, one page is the holy grail of resume writing, and easy enough to do, but I am shooting for a nice fat cushy job, and have to seem as special as possible.
