Self referential post #2 — Updated CV and LinkedIn Profile

And speaking of PR challenged, I just went through my first CV update with a professional resume writer.  They also provided me w/ a short bio I could leverage for my LinkedIn profile (here).

I was warned that I would be a “little overwhelmed by the intensity and wording of a professionally prepared resume. It’s strange and a little uncomfortable to read about yourself in an aggressively-written marketing style.”

Completely agree!  Not that self-aggrandizement doesn’t come easily to me — I live the saying “often wrong, but never in doubt” — but I was used to my somewhat modest recitation of what I did.  It took a few days to appreciate the focus on what I had accomplished (or what accomplishments I could somehow be plausibly be tied to).   A worth-while process all in all.

The finished CV is here.
