Speaker: Joe Gallaher (SPCI)

Designing and implementing a new operating systems environment is fun and exciting. How about documenting your work afterwards? Well, maybe not so much. Systems programmers are much better at doing their job than recounting their work later. Perhaps that is why finding a well-written systems resume is rarer that a 25 year old with MVS internals.  

But why should detailing your own experiences be so difficult? A quick search on Amazon yields hundreds of books on creating the perfect resume. Every aspect of creating your resume is covered, including the use of power adjectives, selecting the perfect font, and choosing the ideal paper stock - in other words, a lot of useless fluff. So save your 15 bucks (plus shipping and handling) and attend this session. For the last 25 years the speaker has reviewed and written thousands of systems programmer resumes. So who is better qualified to help you document you? Let's get down to work!
