Things that make you go hmm . . .
buzzed, B&W
Hmm . . . so earlier this week we got this resume that included a link to a personal blog. Really? I think there are definitely times when you can do this, and it's okay (i.e. when you have a professional blog vs. a personal one), but it's definitely a fine line - this particular applicant's site includes an academic section, a flickr stream, etc. It's actually got a pretty solid design, and shows some knowledge of CSS and working with WordPress, but there's still a lot of personal stuff . . . i.e. she talks about taking her cat to the vet, her cooking escapades, etc . . . I'm not sure that's the impression I'd want to make (and if I weren't a tech person, her design skills and things would be lost . . . )
