For those who are searching for a new job or who might be doing so in the foreseeable future, the linked essay tells you most of what you need to know. It tells you what to do, what not to do and how to go about finding a great job.
It find it to be exceptionally good and so I offer the link without commentary. As a public service.
[Addendum: in a new post the author has presented two sample resumes, so you have a reference point in drawing up your own. Link here.]
