I might be missing something in your answer: based on the arguments
presented, such resumes shouldn't even result in getting interviewed,
much less hired. But the very length of such resumes ("I received
several resumes that were 8-10 pages long, and included every contact
writing assignment they'd worked at for the last 20+ years") suggests
otherwise. How do you think that happens?
