Episode 27: Writing Great Resumes and Pushing Back on Non-Engineering Tasks
In episode 27, Jamison and Dave answer these questions:
How do I write a great resume?
- Do you really need a resume these days?
- How important is formatting and good design?
- What content should be on your resume?
Should I push back on non-engineering tasks like PowerPoint presentations?
From listener samspot: I am a Sr. Developer and I am often asked to spend time on PowerPoint presentations for funding and other business stuff. I want to ask why the managers, analysts, etc can’t handle these tasks. I find them to be a frequent distraction from my actual responsibilities, especially because these are so frequently “emergency” requests. Should I push back on this work, or is it better to be a team player?
