TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
A CV is a life history, in the Brit sense of things, at least. I've been in
the field for 20 years; with a CV, I include everything I've done in the
profession. I've seen CVs of people that included every course they took at
each level of public school (British public schools are somewhat different
from our definition), A-levels and O-levels, side jobs, volunteer work,
papers written, applications made, etc. There must be a book (or likely 400
books) "out there" on the preparation of a CV. Maybe Ask.com has an article.
For a resume, I cut and cut and cut to get the damn thing down to 2 pages.
And, I don't use 12- or 11-point typeface, either, for that.
