As a consultant I would go to an assignment for 6 months or longer. I would make friendships with the people I worked with, either on the project team, or employees of the client I was working with. One of the hardest parts of being a consultant was leaving the people I worked with and had built relationships with. I'm not very good at staying in touch with people. so I have lost many friends over the years.
The time between when a request for data is made, and when that data is received, or when a change is made to data and the data shows up in other systems is referred to as latency.

Recently I was engaged in a job hunt and had to polish up my resume, after sitting dormant for many years. There are many, many articles, blogs, and books written on how to write a resume. Most of these resources are written by head hunters, job coaches, and professional resume writers. I have read many resources about how to write a resume, but they never seemed to make sense to me.
