Whether I'm hiring, direct or contract, "project-based" is always at the
top of my list. But my idea of "project-based" is not your description.
It's the ability to look at projects under development, assess project
document needs, work with project managers and developers to develop
document scope, schedules, budgets and plans for obtaining and
organizing information, and generating, verifying and delivering
documents, on schedule and within budget. This may involve any or all
of the skills in your list, as well as things not on your list, such as
technical knowledge and hands-on experience with the technology
involved, but strength or weakness in any one of these ranks way
behind the ability to leverage strengths and work around weaknesses to
get to a successful (meets all requirments, on time and within budget)
project completion. Bring me a pile of references from people attesting
to your successful track record in this area, and we'll work around
anything on the resume that doesn't quite fit the posted job
requirements.
