As someone who has hired and been hired many times, I’ve seen and written my fair share of resumes. Clean white sheets tree pulp embossed and inked with the accomplishments of the writer. What an outdated system! Worse still are the PDF and Word resumes, emulating the old pulp and ink model. Ignoring the fact that you can’t convey motion, video, or interactivity in a paper resume, the main downside from my perspective is a lack of open source spirit. All these resumes floating around and they’ve never taught anyone anything besides a written history of a job candidate. Bleh.
First, I ssh’d into my account and cloned my resume repository into a /resume/ directory with
git clone https://github.com/huntergdavis/Hunter-Davis-impressjs-Resume.git resume
Next, in that same SSH shell I created a bash script that could be run with cron that would update this repo every hour:
git submodule update
Finally, I used the BlueHost control panel to tell my cron script to run every hour. That’s that!
