One common thing in IT that we all struggle with at one point or another is getting our blasted resumes in order. There are an infinite number of formatting styles to use, and every person does it a little differently. I was curious what everyone's general formatting style was?
I published an article on this very topic. You can find it here!

That being said, and having seen my share of resumes from the hiring side of the fence, the shorter and more to the point, the better. I want to see what you've done that's applicable to the job, and I want a writing sample to see if you can communicate in writing or not.
Basically when hiring you have two questions to answer:
1. Can they do the job?
2. Are they a decent person?
#2 you can usually get from the in person interview and your gut feeling. #1 you can only really get from seeing past work, which the resume is only a proxy for. I'd rather see the work they've done rather than ask them questions about it.
