writing tasks

Welcome to ResumeWiki. ResumeWiki is a community edited resume centre. You post your profile (goals, etc) and resume the community of peers will give you comments and possible edits. Feel free to view the ExistingResumes or the RecentlyUpdatedResumes for examples of other peoples' profiles, resumes and cover letters. You are free to omit personal information (since this is primarily about improving your resume, not getting you exposure).

and then there's this:
