Misc.jobs.resumes is a place for individuals seeking employment
to post their resumes (or curriculum vitae, aka "cv"). If you feel you need
to post a followup article to an article in misc.jobs.resumes, it should go
to misc.jobs.misc. Discussion of misc.jobs.resumes belongs in misc.jobs.misc.
Many of the suggestions made above apply here as well. Be concise,
limit distribution, and most of all, remember you only get to make one
first impression. Provide a useful Subject line. A Subject line of "resume"
will not help potential employers find your article. Employers will judge
you based on the effort you make when constructing and posting your resume.
Posting your resume to misc.jobs.misc or misc.jobs.offered will not make a
good impression. Howver, if you want to receive comments/review/critique
regarding your resume, then post it instead to misc.jobs.misc with a
clear statement that you are seeking comments rather than employment. If
you post a resume to misc.jobs.misc without such a statement, readers may
assume that you are seeking employment, but cannot be troubled to find the
correct newsgroup to post to.
Also, not everyone has the latest text formatting software. Try to
limit your resume to simple ASCII format, or provide a separate companion
posting if you wish to post your resume in troff, LaTeX or PostScript.
