Resume Writing
for the Mainframe Systems Programmer



  Below are applicable links to Joe Gallaher's SHARE presentation in Anaheim on Feb. 28, 2011 entitled Resume Writing 101: A Real World Guide for the Mainframe Systems Programmer.  Please send me a copy when you get it done.  Check out my presentation reviews on LinkedIn.

PowerPoint Webinar:  81.4 MB (85,410,903 bytes)
This is a narrated PowerPoint presentation that recreates my SHARE session on writing a mainframe systems programmer's resume.  I made this because many of the slides do not make sense without the accompanying audio explanation.  I highly recommend spending the 40 minutes and 23 seconds it takes to watch this video -- you will get a lot more out of the session than just viewing the slides.
PowerPoint Slides:  590 KB (605,097 bytes)
These are the PowerPoint slides from the SHARE presentation.
