Andrew – Got your LinkedIn e-mail today. I think I’ve filled the position that I posted about recently but I may pass you along to one of my colleagues who runs our team of community managers.
Nice presentation of yourself via LinkedIn, your blog and your “about me” video on Flickr. Definitely an “A” for effort there.
Let’s stay in touch. My e-mail is aaron AT mzinga dot com.

Hey I know it might be useless now but I would like to suggest you against overuse of bullets in your resume. Its an entirely personal opinion and I hope you take it constructively. Hope it is of some little help to you.
Thanks for the advice. The personal opinion of a person called “online resume” seems worth considering, and indeed I will consider it when I next update my resume.
Excellent Website! I wondered if I could quote a site and use a handful of items for a school assignment. Please let me know through email whether that would be fine. Thanks
thanks for the read I found yer site on google. I wrote about common interview questions and thought you’d like to know check it out http://www.americanjobadvocate.com/content/top-10-job-interview-questions
Resume cashier: you may certainly quote this site, with proper attribution. In fact, anyone may do so.
That attribution thing is particularly important for school assignments. Absence of attribution is plagiarism which, as you know, is a very bad thing.
What’s Up! Just had to leave a comment. I honestly enjoyed this article. Keep up the great work.
