This node is inspired by RimRod's Everything Resume Repository (go there first). This is a great initiative and I hope that many noders will benefit from this. However, I don't feel too comfortable having a direct connection between my professional life, and my contributions on E2. These writeups sometimes become too personal, and in between the lines there may be stuff that you don't want your employer to know.

On the other hand, networking with fellow noders with a similar professional background/education can be a good thing. I might just have the right industry contact to land you the perfect job; you might be working for a company that requires exactly my skills. Text books on job hunting list networking as an excellent method to obtain a job (a 33% success rate).

But how do you find these fellow noders that will boost your career? It's clearly impossible to browse through all the users' homenodes in the hope that they might have listed their professional skills. For instance, I wouldn't be able to name one fellow Chemical Engineer after nine months of noding. Therefore I am proposing to maintain a list of noders with a summary of their professional background and skills.

How do you get on this list? Simply /msg pp with a one-line description of your qualifications and/or skills, and a location (if desired). I will update the list as soon as I can. Don't add your own writeups to this node, or bones will be very disappointed in you...

Also note that people may have different reasons for having their name included in this list (e.g. client contacts, employment, professional advice, or personally). Inclusion in this list does not necessarily mean that these persons are looking for a job, or trying to fill an opening.

The list is alphabetical by handle. I'll categorize it when the list gets larger. Allowed abbreviations: (S) Searching for employment opportunities, (N) Not searching for employment opportunities.
