Fireworks can improve your text-version resume

Matt’s resume tip #34: Spice up the text version of your resume on Careerbuilder with some FIREWORKS:
.·: * :·.
Everyone loves fireworks. Tell me someone who does not like fireworks. Therefore, you should put fireworks into your text-version of your resume. Employers will JUMP at the chance to interview you.

C’mon fireworks ASCII art. Who can resist?

.·: * :·. .·: * :·. .·: * :·. .·: * :·. .·: * :·. .·: * :·. .·: * :·. .·: * :·.

.·: * :·. .·: * :·. .·: * :·. .·: * :·. .·: * :·. .·: * :·. .·: * :·. .·: * :·.

P.S. Using ASCII art fireworks in the signature of your email is like the fireworks grand finale. Everyone will ooo and aahh.

    How bout these fireworks courtesy from Joan Stark’s geocities site (http://www.geocities.com/soho/7373/july4.htm). It cracks me up that there are geocities pages still active. My first webpage was on geocities… in 1997. I tried copying and pasting the ascii art to this page, but there must be some code on that site that prevents copying.
