Helping My Girlfriend with Google Docs Templates

I was up past midnight beating out a first-cut resume for my girlfriend.

She's getting laid off, so she needs a new job. Her resume, built from an academic CV, is so big and impenetrable it needs to include bookmarks.

Sometimes, a job's so big that it's hard to start it yourself, so I told her I'd do it. I reasoned I could get it close enough that she could finish it up.

I started with Google Docs, which now has templates -- including, it turns out, resume templates.

A few hours playing, cutting, and pasting, and she has a first-cut that looks reasonable.

If you know someone who wants to hire a biologist, don't hesitate to post a comment.
