From teaching to tech - updating resume and skills
April 4, 2011 10:22 PM Subscribe
I have a Master's in math, and would like to get a job in the tech industry or a laboratory, but my resume is very teaching-oriented. I would like tips on retooling it to make myself more attractive. I also have several months to improve my skills.

I have done some basic undergraduate computer science classes - C++, data structures, assembler/processor design, and discrete math. I have also done some MATLAB and Mathematica programming in my grad program (primarily numerical solutions of ODEs and PDEs).
Here is my current resume
This is the first time I have been looking for a job like this, so I may be a bit out of the loop on any unwritten rules. I do have four or five months before I would want to start this new job, so I would appreciate suggestions on improving my skills as well.
I have a somewhat cool idea for an app that would use some of my math and statistics knowledge - I have been planning on learning Python and coding it up. Is this worthwhile?
