The summary section of your resume is the first opportunity, in writing, to delivery an effective “Elevator Speech”.
If you have information about a specific position you are applying for with each resume, then you can focus your Summary on those requirements of the job for which you are most qualified. This type of impactful, focused Summary will have a strong effect on the reader if your capabilities clearly fit what they are looking for.
Be strong in your quantifiable claims. Be positive in your attitude to succeed. Be ready to defend your claims.
If you are scheduling or holding a meeting and you DON’T have an Agenda, then I suggest you cancel your meeting and prepare an agenda ASAP.
Usually, there are people who are interested in the outcome of a meeting who will contribute to the items that they would like to have ON the agenda so that you can preview your proposed agenda with them and get their feedback / changes.
Once you have an agreed upon agenda, you can then set up a meeting to invite the appropriate people and send then the agenda before hand so that they can prepare for the topics that will be covered.
At the actual meeting, you will then be able to coordinate the discussions to follow the agenda, take any non-planned topics and put them in a Follow Up or Parking Lot list, capture all the decisions, open questions, and action items from the planned agenda items and, finally, publish the minutes with all the useful and on-topic discoveries.
Just remember that effective meetings start with careful planning. So, prepare an agenda and send it out with your invitations.
I am working on another written piece where the “working title” is “The Agilist: A Series of Perspectives”.
So far I have interviewed several folks who call themselves “Agilists” and I am collecting their thoughts and forming an impression of how I want to write about this new Job Title / Skill set.
Here is the questionnaire for your review / reference. If you would like, please download a copy and fill it out as best you can so that we can schedule a discussion together. Send your responses to me and I will reach out to contact you for follow up.

When engaged in the development of Story Boards, do you use any techniques for elaborating the details within and / or around each Story Board entry?
How do you determine when there is enough detail included in a set of Story Boards to release them to a SPRINT for development and roll out?
What factors are included in deciding that some feature of Story Board entry will be posted to a Back Log rather than in the current SPRINT development efforts?
How do you determine when “re-factoring” is required?
Where and when do you introduce the re-factoring needs to the Story Boarding and SPRINT processes?
How do you determine when your Story Boarding efforts should be concluded?
How do you reconcile the features included in the app with the Story Board items?
While searching for some other “stuff”, I found a link to a FREE Website Grader tool that does some evaluations on web sites SO I figured I would try it out on THIS website: http://www.thepathtoinkc.com
The price tag for Biden’s Student Forgiveness has hidden costs as well. The obvious cost is the face value of the forgiveness (either 10k or 20k). But other expenses need to be added to the price of the Loan Forgiveness.
Civil War Amendment used to Remove PRO-Trump County Commissioner
A New Mexico judge on Tuesday ordered the removal of a county commissioner convicted of participating in the January 6 riot at the Capitol under the 14th Amendment, making him the first public official in more than 100 years to be barred from serving under a constitutional ban on insurrectionists holding office.
Section 3 of the 14th Amendment was enacted during Reconstruction to punish Confederate members for fighting against their country during the Civil War. This section states that no person shall hold any civil or military office under the United States or any state who, having previously taken an oath to “support the Constitution,” had then engaged in rebellion or insurrection.
Are more Pro-Trump members of Congress about to be next?
The blogs that I write are on many different topics and I don’t write new materials in them on a regularly scheduled basis. But I do occasionally post new content on these blogs.
Please check out any one or all of them and join me in a conversation about whatever I have written about OR whatever YOU would like to talk about. I can be reached at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
The Chief was the name we used when refering to our GrandFather: John Hiczwa.
He came from Poland or Serbia with his wife: Sophie and they started their new life in the United States in the early 1920’s. You can read more about them in my book: “A Cowboy’s Reflections” on Amazon but this is my current INTRO video for the Training Segments I am producing for my, hopefully, ever-growing audience.
I hope that you will send me a note, reply to this posting, and/or subscribe to my blog so that we can talk, listen, learn, discuss for a long, long time.
Attached is an early attempt at building brief technical training segments that I am planning on offering from this web site for my clients.
At first, I was thinking of naming this offering “Five Dollar Bill” and posting these videos on You Tube but that didn’t work for various reasons. Then, I tried calling these offerings “Technically.Retired” and “TECHnical.e.retired” but those names didn’t work either. For now, there is no official name for these offerings but I am still starting to produce the training sessions, so here is an early segment for your review.
Please let me know if you think this material, this effort, is worthwhile.
Thanx bgbg – email@example.com
PS: Apparently I still have some Video Editing skills to refine before I will consider these any where close to finished video products; however, I also believe that I have made some significant strides in the last few days and week.
