I'm a software-developer(17 years)-turned-software-techwriter(21? years). I can't figure out what I should be saying on a resume that would meet your needs.

I just realized that Andrew is completely right about something.

I just met with a potential client who is going to need a team with
different skills than I have readily available. So I went to a local STC
chapter website to look at the online resumes. After paging thru the write
up on all of them, almost NO ONE is telling me the technologies they know.

Lot of tools, but if we get the project, I need people with B2B knowledge,
unix/linux admin skills, stuff like that. Not RoboHELP, Pagequarker, and ISO
90210.

Andrew is completely right. I don't have the time to wade thru, looking to
see if someone has hidden stuff that if I can search I can find. I need the
domains of knowledge more than I need tools because this is a tough project.
