The [Friday] Papers

I need work, projects, assignments, collaborations. Here is my extended resume/clips/bio/career interests. Now, in this SlideShare version, the links don't work, though you can click through and download it and then you're good to go. Also, I'll just place a linky Word for Mac version below this one as another option.

Steve Rhodes Resume 2017 from Steve Rhodes


Here's the linky Mac for Word doc:



Now, perhaps the biggest problem I had was picking out specific Papers columns to show, as well as other Beachwood work. I'm going to work on that; if you have any favorites or suggestions, let me know.


I'll place a more proper version, or at least the downloadable linky version, on the site soon as a permanent addition.


Sometimes I supply URLs in cover letters, sometimes not. Personally, I'm not sure I see the utility of cover letters in most cases. These days, a lot of applications are automated forms anyway. And, of course, for a lot of folks their website is their resume, filled with samples.

The linky resume is something I've been doing for years. I don't know if the editors reading it agree, but I think it's quite effective.

Anyway, one change you are likely to see on the site in the coming weeks/months is a more personal slant, at least on the rails, in terms of me showcasing more of my own work.
