Tolerating bad coffee is a key skill in these United States.

The resume looks good. Impressive is a better word, actually.

Thank you sir

If nothing comes of it I will move to a more... ordinary resume format and submit for web design work. Or something.

In the ordinary resume format I am much less impressive and that's what you need to get a job.

the ordinary resume format doesn't care about the Cellar because it wasn't professional work

People do not go on monster.com looking for people like me. Generalists. People want to hire specialists, for one skill, and they want to measure you on how expert you are in it. When they measure me that way I do not measure up.

Very very true. This has been my experience as well.

I like your innovative format. Definitely should stand out.

UT...it's great. You'll get the job of your dreams soon. If I could, I'd hire a guy like you in a heartbeat.

I like where you put 'honest' because as you've said no one seems to look for integrity and it would be the first thing I would want in an employee.

small businesses face a transitional challenge when they grow to a point where they need to hire someone(s) to handle the growth of their business. Maybe you need to find someone that has a 1st level business but needs to move to the 2nd. you could be the office manager. you'll need accounting skills for that, and the owner will need to trust you.

seems to me like a difficult gig to get.... have you thought about trying on some of your recent Token clients? Those are the types of businesses I'm thinking of.

Wow, UT. It sounds like you want my job, except the marketing and online community aspects.

I may be vacating it soon. You want to come to Montana and take over?

If you are serious, I'll give you a shout as things solidify. I can't guarantee you'd get the job but I'm thinking you'd have no problem doing so.

You could also look at this search on the MT job site. The two "web developer" jobs are in shops I used to work in. Good jobs. Good people.

I'm hoping you did an on-line stutter and meant to type you are CHECKING IT OUT! Check it out.

If even for practice.
