Spicing it Up, and Standardization Thoughts

JobSpice is a neat online resume creation tool. If you haven't seen it already, I recommend checking it out.

In my ideal world, every company would use the same application system and want resumes in the same format, so that we all wouldn't have to spend so much time and effort not only submitting resumes and applications, but reviewing them (on the receiving end) as well. I'm kind of surprised there hasn't been more standardization on this front yet, but who knows? It could happen. Until then, though, tools like JobSpice will make things easier by helping the resume creation and editing process take less time.

Still Alive

Yes, I'm still here, though it might not seem that way. The new (old) gig is going well, and I will start another year of grad school in a couple of weeks.

I've got some possible post topics in the works -- anonymity and privacy online, long-term development, learning new skills, networking, and more. I'll post them as they are written; I tend to do much of my writing and brainstorming away from my computer in spare moments here and there.

So, in case I don't post again until Fall (hopefully I won't be that lame this time around), enjoy the rest of your summer!
