[colug-jobs] A first resume

I customize my resume for the job I'm applying for. I basically take
the job description, then re-work that into my resume. Use the same
wording and everything.

Be honest, and don't embellish. But if they want "5 years of
operations experience and want someone who is good with working in a
fast, fluid environment", I'll have this in my summary.

* Over 5 years of operations experience
* Good with working in a fast, fluid environment

If they list a set of technologies that are required, I list those
technologies in the same order (assuming i have experience with them).

The job poster is telling you exactly what they want to see on your
resume in the job description, so you should pay attention to that and
provide it form them without a bunch of other noise.
