The resume for applying industrial positions has a different format from that of academia. You need to add a summary of your goal, talent, experience, and contribution to the company etc, at the top of the first page. You also need patience, it is a game of good match.

Remember, some supervisors will not hire someone who will become a threat of his/her career. So do not look too smart. :D

Hey all

I am now making a move from a semi-research+ teaching post to a full time teaching 'coming into my own' kind of positions at universities...
any advice on this transition is well appreciated...
thanks!

I guess this is a teaching position in a Liberal Arts college. It may be a good move, considering the difficulty in getting a research grant funded nowadays. If you are happy with this position, then it is a rewarding career.
