This is often because a resume doesn't need a publications and research section. Resume is the words that non-academics use, so now I do too in the corporate sector. Jeff Allen ------------------------------------ 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.)
