Peak Bagging and Resumes

A friend of mine called me on? a hobby I have? listed on I list “Golf, Weight Lifting, Writing, Peak Bagging, Running” in that order.

After reviewing that list, I realized it is not quite accurate. Instead, it should read:

Lunchtime Driving Range Golfer
Occassional Lifter of Weights
Fledgling Writer
Purchaser of Expensive Hiking/Mountain Gear
Treadmill Runner

Different companies are offering their services for web design and development. Due to increasing demand of web page design professionals, different institutes are offering web development degree. A large variety of web design development samples is available online for the guidance of IT students. While on the other hand it has become trend among leading companies to place web design contract on site.

This got me thinking that my “optimistic” look at my hobbies is very similar to the current state of IT resumes. I’ve reviewed hundreds of resumes and all of them list “expertise” in some language or operating system. However, most times, the people claiming the expertise suddenly lose their knowledge when it comes to the interview.

I’ve had? C# experts who? couldn’t create? a C# project in Visual Studio. I’ve interviewed? VB experts who couldn’t use a MsgBox.

Wise Man Say, “He who Lie on Resume Stand on Shaky Ground.”?
