As you may have caught from last week’s bloggette, I’m not one for resumes. For myself, that is. Since I don’t do the hiring here at TKA, i’m not an aficionado of the form, which I find cold, uninspiring, and extremely hard to finagle a good portrait of anyone on that one page. Trying to do that kind of distillation really depresses me, but it does fill a need when trying to whittle down a stack of potentials into an afternoon’s worth of interviews—which is when I get a better feel for the student and their ability to learn, as well as their enthusiasm, attitude, intelligence, and effort. (You might remember those qualities from last weeks bloggette, as cribbed by me from Mitchell Corton, Director of Sales for Compuware/Gomez).
