Resume sample from guest speaker

Note: if you'd like to see the resume sample referenced during the BILT meeting, please email Mark Dempsey. We've removed it from the PowerPoint (slide 9) at Dell's request. They're okay showing it informally to faculty and students (i.e. we can email it to you), but did not want it posted publicly. The replacement resume (the "Sample #4" Word document above) can be officially posted and shared publicly.
