Looking Good on Paper

It seems like there has been a rash of corporate downsizing and layoffs going around lately. So, in order to be proactive about the matter there comes a point in life when it is prudent to update the ol' resume. Yes, yes. I know. Even the great Daniel P. Daniel must shamelessly tout his accolades for the poor faceless masses that have not yet had the joy of Daniel P. in their sad, sad, little lives. I suppose I should look at my resume as a good opportunity to pollute the minds of a captive audience; however, I'm told (repeatedly and loudly) that it is an introductory sales document, and it has to be "informative", "succinct", and "non-offensive". What does that even mean? Anyway, I find it difficult to fit the bulk my evil genius into the typical resume mold (surprise, surprise). It just feels so confining, fake and unimaginative. Plus, the knowledge that there are eleventy thousand other schmoes standing in the bread line ahead of me doesn't exactly make for great motivation. Alas, I have been doing my best at putting my sales document together. I have attached it below. I think it looks pretty good, but it never hurts to have another set of eyes on something like this. Let me know what you think.

In case you are wondering this is the training video.
