CFL_Jeff, Ozz: Absolutely. Once you have a couple of decades of experience, an exhaustive resume would be, well, exhausting. So I pick and choose, and keep track of who gets what version.

Terrific ideas, thanks. I was a consultant once, until the kids reached 9th grade, then I needed to be home. I could do it again if I had to, but Philip's description is right on. The money can be great.

comment How to Mentor a Junior Developer
Ruak, you make an excellent point. I was taught that by my manager when I first became a manager myself (he was my mentor, but he was from Brooklyn...) and I never questioned the wording until now. More appropriately: "Notice something right about what they are doing." I lead off with that. When the inevitable 'off by 1' problem comes up with C programmers, I might remark that her loop construction was compact and well-commented, and then ask her to walk me through the logic. Thanks.
