Format for ref resume
« on: February 19, 2012, 04:31:32 pm »
I'm a new NSO with my league and am looking to keep a ref resume current, since it's not going to be long before I start forgetting what I was doing at any given bout.  Is there any particular format that HR prefer when receiving ref resumes?  Do you prefer them in chronological order, or by WFTDA sanctioned then WFTDA regulated, or by position staffed?  Other than no garish fonts, are there any real big no-nos?

Thanks for all you folks do.  It's a great help to us newbs.

1. Do it in google docs
2. Do it in google docs
3. A number of officials on this website have their resume linked in their profile(major Wood for example). It is not real consistent from resume to resume, but there are a lot of things in common between them (date, location, teams/leagues, head Ref, intraleague/inter league/regulation/sanctioned, you position).  And then one tab for on skates and one tab for off. 
4. I would say chronological, and maybe some kind of quick summery as well.
5. Oh yeah, and if you can, do it in Google docs....
Any night when I can pull up the covers and say "I am a better ref right now than I was when I woke up," is a good day.

my apologies if this is obvious, but why Google Docs instead of Excel for instance?

Easier to share.  When applying for tournaments you can supply a link and anyone that is reviewing applications can see it.  If you use excel then you are requiring that they download your resume and have something to view it with.

Google docs is just easier to distribute.  It is quickly becoming a standard for traveling referees.

"Google docs" is a scary phrase that imagines the general power of the googles... but in reality google docs is basically just word/excel etc in an online form.

You can take your excel or word document and convert it to a google docs document from within google docs, and then continue to edit it as you work more bouts.

At the end of the day it isn't required to have your refsume online.  But it is awfully convenient.

Google docs - Check it out if you're interested.  If not, no worries.

The other reason for Google Docs is, once you hand out the link to someone, you don't have to hand it out again when you update it (so no, "dammit, I send out my app and resume last week, and last minute I was asked to head-ref Water City vs Gotham and they won't know about it!")

Agreed.
It's nice to have a living document that can be easily passed along and updated as needed so that your information is ALWAYS current.

That being said - I just got around to making mine... so I'll shut up.
... but I *did* make mine in GoogleDocs.

An actual question,  how does one count double headers?  1 NSO time, or 2?

And if 2 do you list as separate events with same day?  Just trying to figure this out.  Thanks all

I count each bout separately.  If I work a double header then I have 2 entries.  This allows me to list each team that I worked for, as opposed to a league umbrella.

It also more accurately explains the work I have done.

I only list full-length bouts on mine, WFTDA sanctioned, WFTDA regulation, and non-regulation. Each separately. Tournament and multi-day events are marked as such.

I do not list scrimmages or non-regulation length (I.e., 2x30 min halves) bouts.

I have been reffing since 2007, though, so I have that luxury.
You will bout as you practice.
