Anyone that figures this needs to be said is not worthy of an interview.

My mother is in charge of hiring new employee and apprentices and she has always said that I should add all those when applying for a job, team player is a blatant lie though. shog[1].gif

I'd put something like office too. It depends on the process the resume is going through, but if it is going to be screened by HR, it risks getting dropped for BS reasons. I read a comment somewhere from someone who applied to a position and never heard back. He later met a family friend who would have been the boss; they got to talking and the boss asked him why he didn't apply--he'd only seen a few resumes and they had a really hard time picking a good candidate. He insisted he did apply and the bossman later went and checked with HR.
The boss had said that he wanted someone with a B.A. in [technical field where a specific degree might be necessary]. Turns out, the HR drones had tossed any resumes from people who had B.S. or even graduate degrees in the field.

I think I actually call out excel by name...maybe word. Not powerpoint because if the job requires you to not even consider me if I don't list powerpoint, then I *know* I don't want the job. It's all at the bottom of the resume though, in the spot where I list the programming languages I know and crap like that.

Ordered a winter coat for my dog on the 27th expecting it to arrive before the weekend, where it was supposed to start snowing and -10C.

Didn't hear anything from the shop, so I called them 4 times on monday, when they finally picked up, they were going to send it monday tuesday, they didn't and they didn't pick up the phone when I called them so I canceled the order and now they have shipped the order. baldy[1].gif

I have never once had to use Excel or Access. I've pretty much forgotten everything about them since high school. Honestly I'm not even sure what they are for anymore.

my resume says "master blaster of disaster."

flying to Moscow for a one day meeting and then flying back. with hemroids. and diaria.

on the bright side - when I bought the 48 pack of preperation H suppositories and the imodium at CVS today, the girl at the counter suggested that I have a nice day.

^ Good luck with the TSA. I hope you don't get a 'pat down' (read: anal probe).

Edit: Well, actually, I do, so you can shit all over those useless fucks; that is, if you're willing to take one for the team icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I hate it when lawyers send me things in word that should be created in excel.

Or the one (not even old) who was doing math on a calculator and typing the results into excel facepalm.gif

I just checked my resume (which I haven't updated in two years) and "master debater" is not there.

Sorry to hear it, Stitch. I hope it doesn't hit you too hard.

Get some zinc and some rest!

Reason 1,056,346 to hate HR - their narrow, pedantic understanding of, well, everything.

I've seen people do the calculate-and-type thing, too. I want to slap them.

Anything that involves numbers.
