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.
In case it wasn't glaringly obvious from their handling of acquisition
negotiations with Microsoft last year, the per-share value of their stocks has
apparently not been enough to clue the folks at Yahoo in to the fact that the
dotcom has been over for some time.
Yahoo's resume advice may be useful advice for people planning to apply for
positions at Yahoo, but the number of people commenting unhappily about never
getting responses to resumes sent in and jobs being repeatedly reposted tell me
that everywhere else, the general fashion trend is right back at the impersonal
place it was before people started proclaiming that the "new paradigm" of the
dotcom would forever change the way companies do business.
The old black is the new black.
