My take on the resume article

Just kidding...

The reason for the disparity is simple.

The writers are commenting on two different things.

A doesn't like the STYLE of Joel's writing.

B likes the CONTENT of what Joel has to say.

A was prepared to "put up" with the style as long as he liked the content. For some reason the content of the resume article wasn't to his liking so the style drove him nuts.

B thought the content was great and presumably he likes the style too.

I was trying to be elegantly ironic, thanks for clobbering it up.

Alex.ro you've probably started a whole new resume thread with - oh now that is irony.

I thought it was a great article, if anything, I would want more critiques when looking for a job.

It was mostly good, but today's post about "tell me a story" is crap, I'm sorry, but it is. Joel is the exception here.
