2. NO JOKES! This isn't the topic for funny pictures or wise ass remarks.
3. Serious topics need to be well thought out when written, they also need to have well thought out replies. Please try to write more than a single sentence. Back up your opinion with facts or something else.
4. Keep a cool and calm head, especially about things such as politics, gay rights, religion, etc. People are allowed to have differing opinions than you, please don't view them as personal attacks, please don't start any sort of major drama or get all offended here. In the end, we're all friends still.
5. Use common sense when posting in here, which simply means ask yourself if this is something really worth posting, are you intentionally being mean to someone, if your topic is ridiculously controversial (IE. Baby Eating), are you accidentally bashing Christianity on Easter Day, etc.
6. In your posts, please try to clarify whether you're speaking based on fact or personal experiences as it will lead to less misunderstandings. Please do not state opinions as if they were facts without proof to back it up.
7. NO DRUNK POSTING.
Failure to comply with any of these rules (additional rules may be added in the future as needed) will result in a warning or perhaps a banning from the 'Why So Serious?' sub-forum. The severity of the punishment works in tandem with the severity of your actions.

####################################################### ****************************************************************** WARNING: Please omit contact info in your resume, I trust the community, but someone may be dickish and clever, so be careful ****************************************************************** #######################################################
In this thread we fucking go all out, post our (contact info excluded) resumes, and get advice. It doesn't have to be in the game industry, and for the hell of it, blather on about odd and ends, and interests you have that you're not sure how to mix together into a career.
Skills mix (not in resume):
Can find pretty much anything anywhere. Documents, books, info of any kind. Can make awesome sandwiches, and am a decent cook. Have a weird ability to drive people into TMI in casual conversation. People actually stop what they're doing to listen to me rant. Unconsciously remember map grids, paths, fire exits and stairwells. Ask things others don't. (If we can't trust China, why do we manufacture computers there?) I seem to attract glitches and break things way too easily.
Hobbies mix #1a Video Games (Duh) #1b Politics/Culture #2 Manga/Anime/Comics #3 Technology #4 Art/Music (Paintings, lithographs, sculpture, concerts...love museums) #5 Bullshitting (no really philosophy, but tied heavily into 1b) #6 Action Flicks #7 Getting lost and wandering
Problems: #1 Can't sit down cuz of messed up tailbone, can work standing and moving though.
Here's hoping those of us getting reamed by the job market can change that. (Also, haha, I'm getting reamed by the market and the bottom of my spine hurts...I get it. )

I actually am currently holding three jobs right now.
I'm a construction worker in Chicago in the mornings (early mornings, like 3 am), a bar in Westmont at night, and a mom n' pop social media marketing thingie in my free time... busy busy busy All just to make up for massive amounts of student loans. 7 days a week, but it actually all balances out pretty nicely so I don't feel totally swamped.
Golly, I'm so glad I decided to get a degree (history/education) in a field thats just busting down my door with possible job opportunities /end sarcasm
Buuut, I'll post my professional resume later... a good 'ol fashioned teaching resume.

Motherfuck YES I have an interview tomorrow infact but I am going to dicth it because I found out it was way to gatdaym far away I applyed online:O
LOL reminds me of the time I applied for a position at EA. I got an interview with them and they asked me when I could be there. I told them like an hour and a half, kinda making it seem like I was really eager and was willing to drop anything to get there for them. They said that it wasnt possible. I inquired why and they stated that the interview was in Vancouver. I live about an hour away from Toronto. So like a 2 day drive or 5 hour flight away from Vancouver. I applied for a position in Toronto but got an interview in Vancouver. Needless to say I had to respectfully decline the interview due to the $1200 it would of cost me to go there.
