We're hiring for an ecommerce Marketing Manager at Discovery. If you've got any good candidates, send them my way.
Two pet peeves on recent resumes I've seen:
If you've been out of college more than five years, the 2nd item on your resume should not be your education (unless it's the only thing relevant to the job you're applying for). Secondly, unless you're applying for a very entry level job, where computer literacy would be a surprise, highlighting your knowledge of Microsoft Word is a space filler, and looks as though you're at a lack for things to highlight about yourself. Now, if you've written a book on Word, or can program your own macros in Excel, that might be worth bragging about in more detail.
