    1st - drop all the jobs before Genie

    Nobody you will be applying to will care if you worked at McDonalds

    2nd Under qualifications - you have the longest sentence I have ever read in my life. And you try to use 'power' words that make the reader feel as though you are just filling space. Put an accomplishment in there. Add a little pizzazz-

    and for education:

    Radiation Sciences, (No Degree.) - instead put ''currenlty pursuing'

    The two that haven't come forward are the two who signed confidentiality agreements ten to twelve years ago, there is generally a penalty written into such agreements. Those women did what would be considered proper, they went to the company at the time it happened and reported the incidents. It is not easy for a career woman to make that sort of charge. All too often, and as we've seen the woman is depicted as a slut or nut and torn apart. But the key here is timing, it was quickly and quietly handled, Cain left his contract with them six months early. And the women left too. The whole thing hushed up and if Cain hadn't run he could have gone on to other business's and no one would have known about his behavior, which does seem to have been all at about the same time, so it could be a rough time in his marriage, or midlife crisis. Or he learned how to behave. Or, more frighteningly, he had other episodes that we don't know about. Women are unfortunately more familiar with sexual harassment than we like to acknowledge, and the woman who spoke to him at the fundraiser did so in public, in a situation where she's not going to jump up and yell, you sunofabitch to him. From her standpoint it was long over. Adults don't act out in public either. Cain has a tin ear when it comes to women, and apparently not much memory about them either. There is no purpose in bringing him down until the man got the nomination, unless you are one of his opponents in the race to be the nominee. He is as carefull as any lawyer about what he's said, like that he'd take a polygraph, but only if he felt it necessary. I'm guessing he won't be finding it necessary any time soon. And the settlements on his behalf between NRA and the women is on record, its not an unsubstaniated rumor. If their lawyers saw fit to payout rather than fight, with a degree of immediacy, its a pretty good indicator they were cutting their losses short and they knew they'd lose. It goes the other way if Cain had fought a long legal fight with his own money, then you could say it was costing him too much. But NRA has a staff of lawyers so it wouldn't cost them anymore to fight this.

    You have a good resume with alot of work experience. To help improve your resume at the top, under "Qualifications" I would make it personal according to the company you are applying for. For instance, I would say " I am a Information Techonologist looking to work for_________ where I can apply my many skills in the company....etc..etc. By making it personal it shows that you have an interest in this one company and not any company that will hire you. I hope this helps and good luck.
