Morning Discussion

By Xav de Matos, Feb 10, 2011 5:00am PST Last night, one of the best shows on television ended. Five years after continuing the story already made into a film inspired by the novel from author H. G. Bissinger, Friday Night Lights has run its final play.

It's odd though; for some, the season hasn't even started. Friday Night Lights first runs on Direct TV and then jumps to a major network--in this case, NBC.

On NBC, Friday Night Lights begins its final season on April 15. If you haven't seen the series, I recommend it. It really is something special, even if you don't like football.

  • OK, I need some quick resume/job advice.

    I got a call from a recruiter that I worked with a few weeks back. She has a job position for something called a Presentation Specialist. The job i basically making PowerPoint presentations for this company to use at conferences. The only reason why they are calling this position a Presentation Specialist is because I told the recruiter what it was.

    I can do everything that this company is asking for: creating complex PPTs with graphs, charts and some illustrations drawn from faxes (no clue why they would do it this way...). I can do all of this. It's not that big of a deal because I learned how to do all of it in college.

    That's where my problem is: I haven't done really anything with PPT since I let college. My jobs really didn't require it. The recruiter and the client both want me to change my resume to reflect my experience with the program. If I do this, I will be flat out lying about my job history and I don't want to blow this.

    I know I can do the job after I brush up on my Excel skills. I'm not worried about it. What should I do? Tell the recruiter that my experience with PowerPoint is all from college and not real job experience?
