November 11, 2014 Don’t put it on your resume if you don’t want me to ask you about it or you don’t want to do it any more
This seems pretty obvious, but nearly every resume I looked at while hiring the last round of developers had technologies that the candidate either couldn’t answer a question about (“Man it’s been forever since I used Access 2000”) or didn’t want to work with (“Ya, I did JCL, but I don’t want to use it any more”).
Review your resume. If it’s got stuff on there you don’t want to do any more, remove it. Sure it’s keyword fodder for HR, but do you want them to flag your resume because you’ve got Prolog on there still? It just wastes everyone’s time.
