I spell resume (noun, meaning a summary of one's experience sent to

a potential employer) without accent marks. Also, I and a few of my

friends will jocularly and deliberately pronounce it as if it were

the verb resume (two syllables, long e and u) when we know there's no

possibility of confusion. (At least in my usage, a resume and a

curriculum vitae are different things--a c.v. is used mostly for

academic jobs, and lists everything, while a resume is used elsewhere

and summarizes, often in a single page.)
