The anti-résumé: name a weird task or skill your ASD could grant you

Katleya

Sarcasm Lover
V.I.P Member
I came across a "pointless data broker" in a post (courtesy of @Full Steam), and that's inspired me to write a crazy résumé (or CV for our non-US based friends), in the vein of things I would write if I were brutally honest about my quirkiest abilities.

My lifetime experience as an Aspie makes me an expert:
- Unilateral sarcasm wielder
- Eyecontact avoider
- Messy organizer
- Potato chips flavor taste-tester
- Electric plug audio-controller
- Overthinker
- Lie & other bull crap outcaller

What would you put, if your traits were jobs or skills?
 
People avoider
Relentless Music critic
Remeberer of useless info
Shrinking Chocolate bars detector
Open to criticism ,(only from my invisible voyeurs)
 
Call a spade a spade. (Might be useful if applying to a hardware store)

Over 30yrs experience as a crunching specialist.

Consultancy level in singling out crap ideas from the slightly delusional.

Permanent residency outside of a box - sprinting around the outside - level 3

I see things.

Energy efficient and advocate against carbon footprint - I can hear if you've left something plugged in and switched on

Diagnostics analyst - let me listen to your car engine, it may not be running at it's most efficient

Result orientated - I can deliver results much faster than karma.

Oh, Gracey, "consultancy" level only? Shoot for the moon, I'm sure you (and many of us) can aim for partners right away :cool:
(I really love that "outside of the box" residency, too)

Can't find the right course that offers associative membership with a professional body on successful completion. So stuck at consultancy for the time being.

Was thinking of going for level four on the box sprinting but I've just discovered the poetry of Robert Burns at the same time as befriending pigeons and will likely take a career break to obsess.

I am open to discussion on the creation of a moon shooting club for moon shooters though :)
;)

Does it involve loud bangs from the moon shooting? I don't do too well around loud noises, unless I have my headphones on. But if I have my headphones on, what if I don't hear someone warning me of danger?

[Note to self: investigate a career as a headphone model or tester]

Most definitely headphones used. We could road test your new designs at our club.
Always point your gun up (who're you going to shoot at that height?)
Don't worry about danger .. you've got a gun :D

How many A4 pages are we limited to for the hobbies and interests section of the C.V?

Does the term interests include special interests or will that be separate?
;) :)

Oh, knock yourself out filling out those! (Not literally, though)
Whichever you deem (in)appropriate
