    I'm trying to make the connection between eleven pages of resume and the US government being fuked up. What's the point here?

    A friend of yours and an 11 page resume is not surprising. 20 years service and 20 Capt's Masts require a good deal of spin. How do you spin your 'special relationship' with him?

    Are you trying to say the government demands 11 pages of resume? Isn't it his choice to submit 11 pages?

    You can't have 11 pages for your resume, nobody reads that shit. I talked to people who do the hiring and firing and any resume longer than a page really never gets ready, and a 11 page resume like your friends would be thrown in the dust bin.

    it sounds like warbler doesn't know the difference between a job application and a resume.

    a resume longer than a page goes in the round file

    Yup, it sure does. When I first got out of the Military I thought the bigger your resume was the better but I quickly found out thats not true, anything longer than a page goes in the dust bin.
