Chris's resume

On 9 September 2009, Chris's résumé finally surfaced onto the Internet, through the effort of a troll with a friend who worked in an HR department.

Analysis

As is to be expected, for someone with no discernible skills and extremely limited work experience, the résumé is less than impressive. No less than three times Chris pads his résumé by claiming his "volunteer work" for Pokémon league events at The GAMe PLACe and other locations as actual work experience (when in reality he had no authority, and in fact was himself closely monitored by the actual employees).

Chris's résumé includes a few points where he talks about his desire to work for a comics publisher, such as DC or Archie. However, it's unlikely that Chris has sent any work or a résumé to either company, likely simply uploading it to Monster and waiting for others to contact him (not unlike his Attraction Sign). He is seemingly unaware or unwilling to accept that the industry standard for a professional graphic designer (working for DC or Archie) is not only a well-organized portfolio demonstrating samples of his work but also a bachelor's degree in Graphic Design and demonstrated proficiency in accepted design software such as Adobe Creative Suite. Non-art work experience is rarely considered unless it is mentioned as an essential part of the job description.

His cover letter can described as a Sonichu-driven ego rub. Even at a quick glance, one can see that three entire paragraphs are dedicated towards describing Sonichu and Rosechu and how they've made him "internet famous," instead of what it should be about (reasons why it would be a good idea to hire him.) In typical Chris-Chan fashion, he seems to think that he's in complete control of what (Sonichu-related) responsibilities he should be given in the organization, and makes a serious no-no by mentioning that the job should have "good pay," which is usually a turn-off to serious employers.

His "quick construction skills from scratch" (especially considering that he's referring to constructing decks in a children's card game) would mean nothing in interviewing for the very job he seeks to obtain. Indeed it would be of no interest to any other potential employer, for that matter. Furthermore, according to two people who actually had a chance to play card games with Chris, his deck construction skills are severely lacking.

The resume also has a number of CWC style butcheries of well known phrases, such as the particularly grating phrase "Elbow-greased strength" which only serve to make it most nonsensical.

Furthermore, while the field for "job objectives" offers three lines for a succinct answer, Chris, typical of his rambling style, attaches three extra pages of useless junk, thus ensuring that any potential employer will not make any efforts to read the entire résumé (that is, if the scrappy, untidy handwriting doesn't immediately turn them away first.)

Job Objective, Full Story

I, Christian Weston Chandler, Birth name: Christopher, born on February 24, 1982 in Charlottesville, Virginia, am an artist with vast experiences in multiple art classes with multiple media throughout my whole lifetime from Green County Primary School to Piedmont Virginia Community Collge, with a diploma from Manchester High School and a degree and certificate in Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) from PVCC.

Since the inspiration and conception of Sonichu, the Electric-Hedgehog Pokémon on March 17, 2000, I have grown further in his stories, plots and adventures in a series of hand-drawn and computer-edited comic books. I also have had and passed two HTML classes, and created from notepad scratch, CWC’s PokéSite 2!, El PokéSite de R.W.C. (Ricardo Weston Chandler was my Spanish nickname given to me during my two years of Spanish in Manchester High), and most importantly, the First and Original website dedicated to Sonichu, Rosechu and their adventures, CWC’s Sonichu Site.

I was also noted twice later in the periodicals of Nintendo Power magazine and PVCC’s The Forum for being the original creator of Sonichu and all. (See Periodical References below)

With the Sonichu Stie originally located at http://sonichuchandler.tripod.com/cwcson.htm, it stayed online from about 2000 until early 2009, whereas my Sonichu and Rosechu fanbase has grown massively over the years; there were also internet bullies and trolls. And the trolls hacked into and compromised my original Tripod webhosting account. I’ve had to pull the plug on the Tripod account and move on to another webhosting site. The second webhosting account suffered the same fate as the first, and then I moved to GoDaddy. It got hacked too, and so I pulled the plug on all my websites late May, 2009. I stayed off for about two months, then a gal-pal of mine about that time set up for me a start of what is now the New Original CWC’s Sonichu and Rosechu Site; the wikipedia-styled Cwcipedia at http://cogsdev.110mb.com/cwcipedia/index.php/Main_Page. As I have done on the previous site, I have re-uploaded my Sonichu comic pages, and I am steadily expanding further with more stories and character bio pages.

I would like to be paper-published with a comic book company like Archie, Marvel, DC or Dark Horse comics, complete with Official Sonichu and Rosechu Merchandise I can personally sign-off on to follow for my Worldwide Fanbase.

Accept no imposturous substitutes who claim to be me or have any rights on my Sonichu and Rosechu stuff; I stand strong with my continued use of the Copyright © symbol on each of all my books and original singular art pieces and the date of creation of March 17, 2000. I have eye-witnesses at Manchester High of Sonichu’s conception and creation on that date. It also bothers me that the trolls are even selling bootleg copies of my Life DVD, Christian Weston Chandler. Yep…I’m On T.V., which was originally intent solely for family and close friend distribution. Trust one of the trolls to snag a copy and rip the vieos from the six-hour DVD-R.

I became famous without having to leave my house or go out-of-state or city.

After recent realization, on about July 17, 2009, of what I want to do, I wish to make it all official; get me paper-published with a comic book company like Archie, Marvel, DC or Dark Horse comics, with continuing work as a comic book artist and story creator/editor, good pay, eventual official Sonichu and Rosechu merchandise that I can personally and officially sign-off on and further enforce my nine-year-old copyright with a more peaceful future.

Notes

  1. In the Father Call, Chris tells Kacey's Father that on September 11th he was shopping with his mother because he had just been fired from Wendy's.
  2. The Pokémon trading card game wasn't released in North America until December 1998, and its official league wasn't founded until the following year.
