The Simplest Resume That Could Possibly Work

February 11, 2007

Usually when I see words like “methodology” I get the impression the writer is more concerned with sounding smart than with communicating. Look at me! I know a five-syllable word! This doesn’t bode well for how a person will do on a team.

I just saw a resume that said “I utilized the Scrum methodology.” Oh please! Can I trust a methodology utilizer to do the simplest thing that could possibly work? I’m more interested in people who have practiced Scrum, or at least WANT to practice Scrum.

By the way, we’re hiring ScrumMasters and C#/.NET developers, particularly in the Pacific Northwest. Get your simple, clear resume to me or Crystal.
