If you've ever posted a job opening in the newspaper or website, you're probably very familiar with the scan-and-trash technique of dealing with resumes. Half of the resumes I've filtered through shared this fate, many a result of the candidates’ difficulties in spelling the technologies they were proficient in (e.g.: Micro Soft Visuals: Basics, C, C+, C#, C++, Java, Internet). Rafael de la Torre was scan-and-trash filtering through a pile of resumes and stopped for a double-take on this Emule/Kazza-qualified candidate ...

Needless to say, this resume never made it passed the scan-and-trash filter: Rafael need someone who knew how to use Notepad and Solitaire. Oh, and before you laugh at this candidate's MS Paint qualifications, consider that some of us highly value such expertise. Yours truly has actually been honored with the prestigious Microsoft MVP for MS Paint award for my commitment to the Paint community.
