Stupid Resume Tricks

It took me hours of thinking, and mind melding with Aimee and Chris O. to come up with this:

To obtain a web programming and design position in which I can apply my technical knowledge, problem solving and teamwork skills in a challenging academic environment

I feel positively retarded.

Also, I moved from a chronological to a skills-based resume. It’s most appropriate for my current situation: I have the skills, but the current job doesn’t actually do what I want to go and do. I don’t want to work support again (unless I absolutely have to). I want to exercise my brain EVERY DAY THAT I’M WORKING.

Is that so wrong?

    Yeah, overall, if I could use my brain creatively every day I’d be much happier.
