At Clark Community College, Vancouver, WA, the art of resume writing is
covered in tech-writing. It is preached here that technical writers must
learn to write for a particular audience, and as any TWer knows your
audience must be researched just as the subject upon which you write.
Persuasive writing exercises are also a subject of study in clark's TW

But I do agree with Guy. Our talents vary. Let him have his dignity. He
may need it without a good resume. When you write in one corner for a
long time, it's difficult to feel confident anywhere else. In our
networked community, I would have expected several resume writers to
offer their services.
