Much of the text in a resume is necessarily verbs and buzzwords aimed at
people who might know something about that sort of thing: without
familiarity with the field under discussion misunderstandings are likely.

Someone mentioned earlier in this thread the situation of "someone coming
in" to enter the resumes in the agency system...

That sorta thing got me listed as an "Internet Tools Developer from 1995
till now at Lead Performance Support."


Not what I did, not what the resume says... I was, in fact, Lead
Performance Support Developer at Now! Internet Tools.
