Journal Apreche's Journal: Hire Me! 4

As I am graduating and receiving my BS in Computer Science very soon, I need to find a job before I have to make student loan payments. I wrote more about it in my blog.

I welcome job offers, pointers to job offers and mostly I want hints on how to improve my resume, make myself more attractive to employers and find positions that would be a good fit. I've read Joel's Advice and can say that I excel in all the departments he's looking for except GPA, if that means anything to you.

Of course, if you read the things I write on slashdot you may or may not completely love me for what I think and say. But despite this, I figure it can't hurt to try.

        a sercret is pretty low.. to get a secret, you have to not have any major convictions, basically.

        if you can get a secret, you have a promising career ahead of you ;)

        Most DoD contracting isnt doing stuff like making weapons. I mean, hell, I do Video Teleconferencing and web design, lol.
