As I've mentioned before, the ear doctor is graduating in May. Consequently, he is starting to look for a job. The most annoying part of job hunting? Putting that resume together.

Last night for our family night we worked on his resume. Now, I'm not claiming to be an expert resume writer, but I have spent my fair share writing and reading them.

I was looking over his resume for the last time and came to the very bottom. I stopped short after reading his "interests" section.

Right there, below his list of publications he gave me a very sweet and personal shout out.

Pretty cool, huh?

Aww. That's sweet.

But it's also practical. An employer will view a married man as more stable and may offer more money because of his implied 'responsibilities'.

I don't want to take the romance out of it for you. Just saying it doesn't hurt to mention.

I once worked with a guy who negotiated a much higher salary than the rest of us doing the same job. He told me how he sat in the interview, with his hands wrapped around his knees (crossed at the knee) with his left hand on top putting his wedding band on prominent display.

Of course this won't have the same result for a female job candidate - as the employer will view a married woman as a pregnancy risk.

Good Luck to the Ear Doctor! Oh... I noticed that Kaiser Permanente is looking for an on-call audiologist in Denver.
