Smashing Magazine published an article with resume tips for web developers.

I have not yet read the article (the first comment to it suggests that it's largely garbage), but the second comment is pretty remarkable:

If you didn't have a chance to do freelance work, then you don't write about you freelance work, do you? And what women-specific challenges are there in this resume?
