i thought about including scrimmages on my resume, but 3 years of 1 scrimmage per week = 150 scrims

i think after you get about 20 games on your resume the scrims become a bit pointless

I'd leave league practice scrimmages off entirely or if you feel they must be there, list them as a completely separate tab.  Either way, label them clearly!  To present them as anything more than practices seems like artificial resume padding to me.

I mention this because as someone who staffs bouts, I've occasionally had new refs try to inflate their experience to me (either innocently or otherwise) by putting practice scrimmages on the same footing as bouts.  They're not the same.  As a serious referee, I'd expect you to be practicing at least weekly.  Don't count it as bout experience.

As a general guide, there's no sin in being the new person.  If I staff someone knowing they've only done a handful of bouts, I'll chalk a lot of mistakes up to inexperience.  If I staff someone under the impression they've been around a bit, I'm likely to chalk lots of mistakes up to being ill-equipped to referee.

Hey Freddie, your resume has email addresses in it and this forum is publicly accessible and search engine crawlable. By linking to it here, that info will likely wind up easily searchable and spamable.
Yeah, i was weary of including my phone number so i removed it.  i think ill take my chances with Googles spam filter and see what happens.  i included the email addresses of all the head referees too, they will likely not be happy if they get spammed.  what do you guys think?

That's my point. I don't want my email address hanging in the wild, so I'm hoping to nip this practice in the bud before it catches on. This is what Addressbooks are for folks.

You're right, i removed the column.  It had been mentioned as a good idea to add it to the resume but you probably wouldn't want to put it on the resume if you were going to post it to a public forum, my bad.  thanks for the advice.

Hey, so I'm working on my resumé and was wondering:

1) In the Home/Visitor spaces do I include league names or team names.

1a) What if it's a intraleague game - same question

2) I have HR names but not HNSO - is that a problem?

3) None of the teams are WFTDA but we did play by WFTDA rules: How do I classify the bouts?

I'm sure I'll have more questions later. I have no idea how to work excel codes or whatever they're called but I'll figure it out.

Until now I've gathered
1- date
2- location (city/state)
3/4- home/visitor team/league names
5- event name
6- my position
7- head ref
8- bout type

Thanks!  ;D

As a (former) league HR who has to read these...   If I don't know you what I'm looking for is your experience level with the kind of game we're playing and people I could contact for comments on your skills.

1) I track league and team, but when reading them team is more important.
2) Start tracking HNSO, it's not critical that you got back and get it but start from here out.
3) It's valuable for me to know the distinction between Sanctioned/Regulation (WFtDA teams), WFTDA rules, and House Rules.   

For myself personally I track House Rules as split between Modified WFTDA, which I consider timing changes such as a 30 minutes game and every other modification.   I do sum up Modified WFTDA on the front page page but not other house rules.

It's very nice to have a front page with a summary of position by game, but I do also want to see the list of games for leagues and people involved.  This is pretty easy if store it it google docs and do some work with a pivot table.

Online versions are better than file based versions.  If you send me a link that keeps getting updated I can go back when I need it again.

Ok, Thanks. I've been HNSO a couple of times; the other ones are the ones I'm missing. What if there wasn't any?

Write in something like "none", "N/A", or "No HNSO This Bout".

I'm now wondering if it's worth setting up a mini web-clinic, where refs with experience in setting up crews offer resume/CV advice to others on what's good and helpful in one, as at the very least I'm slightly paranoid that mine's not helpful!

That would be a great idea! I've seen different ones; some simpler than others, some way fancy for me. (No knowledge of excel) I took what I liked and made my own but still had many questions. Reflmao helped me out a bit through messages.

Being a brand new referee, I haven't thought about making a resume. But when I saw this thread, I gave it a go.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AolAWXXJpq2AdDJsM0dTSDVKTEpNX3BGUzV3b2Y3Smc

It's not much, but I guess it's smart to start with the resume now so I don't forget anything.

Definitely keep track of all the officiating you do (for bouts). I always encourage officials who are working on resumes to put most recent work on top. Surprisingly a lot of folks don't do this but as  head referee looking at a resume I want to easily see what you have done most recently

good luck

Try something like this. As they mentioned above the more info the better. Including contact info for references from past head refs when possible. Maybe i can grab a pointer or two by putting mine up.

As also mentioned above, please make those email addresses "Available on request", unless you have explicit permission from those references to publicize their addresses on the web.

Don't make other people's emails publicly available to the open Internet. This is wrong. Use your addressbook. Keep a separate document.

Stop. No. Bad.
