"The average employer will initially spend about 15 seconds reviewing your résumé." That statement has
been repeated so often on career websites that it has become a cliché. However, it happens to be true in
most circumstances, particularly when there are 200 other applicants competing for the same job.
Therefore, if you want to create an outstanding résumé, you should strive to make sure you capture the
reader's attention as quickly as possible.
Developing a résumé of high quality takes some time, effort, and a little know-how. This section contains
the know-how -- general guidelines and basic information about résumé writing -- to get you started.
These tips include techniques that professional résumé writers use to write résumés for their clients.
Writing a good résumé is important to the extent that it can give you confidence, bring more job
interviews, and job offers your way, but on the other hand, people with horribly written résumés (and
cover letters) are offered good jobs everyday. This is because some people have such a vast network of
contacts, or have skills in such high demand, that they do not have to worry about the "15 second rule".
What Are Employers Looking For on a Résumé?
Return Home
The purpose of a résumé is to try and win a job interview, not the job itself. Therefore, make sure your
résumé includes the information employers are looking for in when searching for new employees:
Content skills are related to performing a job in a particular field, profession, or occupation and are
acquired through reading, specialized training, internships, academic degrees, and on-the-job training.
Examples include accounting, programming, typing, and instructing.
Functional skills are characteristic ways of working with people, information (data), or things. These
skills are applicable to a wide variety of jobs or situations and may be acquired almost anywhere.
Examples include managing, operating, informing, calculating, coordinating, building, and reading.
Self-management skills are those associated with personality and the way an individual's particular life
experiences have shaped his ability to adapt to different situations. Examples include being honest and
dependable, hard-working, considerate, a team-player, respectful and assertive.
Common Résumé Writing Mistakes
Return Home
As a professional résumé writing firm, we see the same mistakes repeated over and over by our clients.
Below are some general guidelines to avoid making these mistakes:
Tip 1: Don't prepare a résumé more than two pages in length unless you are an executive or manager or
you have been in the workforce for at least five years. Remember, the purpose of a résumé is to get the
interview, not the job. Think of a résumé as being a sales brochure about you and offer your best selling
points and save everything else for the job interview.
Tip 2: Now that you're the president of the company, that job you had flipping burgers 25 years ago is
irrelevant and should be omitted from your résumé. Most employers are only interested in what you've
been up to the last 15 or 20 years. Use common sense when deciding how much work history to offer.
Of course, if you're applying for a job with the government you will have to disclose your entire work
history.
Tip 3: Never omit dates of employment in an attempt to hide your age or cover up an unstable work
history. The reader knows instantly you're trying to hide something. However, one can leave off jobs held
for a very short duration or omit the earliest part of their work history to hide employment gaps and
periods of job hopping.
resumagic.com Page 5
Tip 4: Never mention anything about salary or give a reason for a job termination on your résumé unless
you're applying for a position with the federal government. These topics should be left for the job
interview.
Tip 5: Avoid unsubstantiated claims and overused clichés. For example, too many people state they
have "excellent communication skills", but very few people offer any information on their résumés to back
up this claim.
Tip 6: The reader of your résumé is familiar with what a person in your field does on a daily basis,
therefore, avoid long, detailed job descriptions offering your daily routine tasks that anyone in that position
would perform. For example, everyone knows that a receptionist answers the phone and greets visitors,
so it's pointless to put this on a résumé unless the receptionist answered an unusually large number of
calls and greeted dozens of visitors each day. For example, a receptionist might write that she
"Answered 250 telephone calls on the complex Acme 4576 telephone system and greeted more than 50
visitors each day". If you don't have any remarkable information to offer about your routine job duties
leave them off of your résumé. Instead, offer a brief summary of your job duties and focus on your
achievements and skills.
Tip 7: Leave off the ubiquitous "references available upon request" at the bottom of your résumé. Both
employers and recruiters consider this phrase to be rather silly since everyone is expected to provide
references.
Of course, if your résumé gets you job interviews; don't change a thing about it, even if it violates common
rules of résumé writing. Some people have a vast network of contacts and can get a job without a
résumé at all or with one that is poorly written.
The Three Basic Résumé Formats
Return Home
Résumé manuals offer samples of the various formats one can use to write an outstanding résumé;
however, the vast majority of employers prefer the standard reverse chronological format. Somewhere on
your résumé, you should offer the reader a section outlining your work history in reverse chronological
order with dates of employment, name of employer and your job title. You can then jazz up your résumé
by offering additional information in a functional format or by adding additional sections to your résumé.
Reverse Chronological Format
The chronological résumé is the most traditional format and focuses on time and continuity. It is easy to
organize, write, and read, and it is the most commonly used type of résumé and the one preferred by
most employers.
In a chronological résumé, you present your most recent job first, then trace backwards in time (reverse
chronological). Your most important job duties and accomplishments are described succinctly under
each employer's name and location. This format allows you to emphasize your career growth and
progression and, therefore, is most favorable to those whom have worked in one field and have been
steadily promoted to higher level positions.
Major drawbacks: It is not advantageous for people with limited or unrelated employment experience, who
have job gaps, or a rocky work history.
resumagic.com Page 6
Functional Format
The functional résumé focuses on professional skills, responsibilities, and accomplishments while it deemphasizing dates and specific work experiences. The functional résumé is organized by functional titles
that explain general areas of expertise. Under each function heading is a brief explanation of
accomplishments in that particular area. One can tailor the functional résumé to highlight specific skills.
Therefore, this format is often recommended for recent graduates, liberal arts majors, career changers,
and people with limited work experience or interrupted careers.
Major drawbacks: Most employers do not care for this type of format because it hides the chronological
work history that they want to see when reading a résumé. Employers are not stupid, and the idea that
one could fool them by using this format is rather silly. In fact, most employers will immediately realize
the applicant is trying to hide something by omitting a chronological work history and toss the résumé
out. For this reason, it is recommended that you not use this format unless you have no work history.
Recommended for: Only those who lack a work history, since they have no choice but to use this format.
Numerous résumé writing books and even professional résumé writers continue to suggest the use of the
functional format for those in the situations stated above, but human resource professionals urge you not
to use this format. Always include dates of employment on your résumé and address any inconsistencies
in your work experience at the job interview when asked. If you do have a damaged work history,
consider using the combination format discussed below to minimize the damage.
Combination Format
The combination résumé incorporates both the chronological and functional formats. You can tailor the
explanation of your job history to fit the types of jobs for which you are applying; you can also show
continuity in your job record or history, while highlighting your accomplishments and achievements.
Major drawbacks: There are no major drawbacks associated with this format type; except for the fact that
some employers will think you're trying to schmooze them. Of course, that's exactly what you're trying to
do.
This format is favored by résumé writers because chronological work dates, as well as skill sets, are
highlighted. This format sells the skills and abilities of recent grads, liberal arts majors, career changers,
and people with limited work experience or interrupted careers. In fact, it is a great format that everyone
can use because it will help your résumé stand out from the crowd. Most of the sample résumés in this
booklet use both chronological and functional elements to highlight specific skills and experience.
Regardless of the format you choose, your résumé should contain the content employers are looking for.
This is the subject of the next topic.
Components of a Résumé
Return Home
The following information should always appear on a résumé:
Contact Information: Include your name, permanent address, city, state, zip code, and telephone
number with area code. Do not write the word "Résumé" at the top of the page unless your job search is
confidential. If this is this case, insert "Confidential Résumé" at the top.
Work Experience: Include information about both paid and unpaid, part and full-time employment and
internships in reverse chronological order. Include the following information for each job you have held:
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Job title
Name of employer
Location (employer's city and state)
resumagic.com Page 7
ƒ
ƒ
Dates of employment (beginning and ending month and year)
Your most important job duties summarized as briefly as possible, followed by your most
important accomplishments. Quantify your accomplishments using actual numbers, percentages
and other statistics whenever possible.
NOTE: You do not have to offer work history older than 15 or 20 years unless it is logical for you to do
so. For example, if you've been out of the workforce raising children for the last 10 years, then you would
want to include the work history older than 10 years. However, if you have been a successful business
person for many years, then there is really no need to include the jobs you held during college, or that are
irrelevant to whom you are now. This type of information is distracting to the reader and bulks up your
résumé with needless information.
Higher Education: List, in reverse chronological order, all college, university, and professional degrees that
you hold. You do not need to list your high school graduation date unless that is your highest level of education
and you graduated less than five years ago. Information you might include:
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Degree awarded
Name of school, city and state
Major and minor area of concentration
Graduation date (month and year)
Awards and scholarships
If you are a recent graduate, include your cumulative or major GPA only if it is 3.5 or higher for nonscientific majors, and 3.2 or higher for technical and scientific majors. Always indicate the grading
scale, e.g., 3.9/4.0.
If you're over 50 years of age you may delete the year you graduated from university (and some older
work history) to fight back against age discrimination

Beginning a résumé with a job objective is almost always unnecessary and is, in fact, frowned upon by most
recruiters and employers. Despite this fact, the overwhelming majority of job seekers begin their résumés with
a job objective. You can gain an advantage over other candidates by not offering a job objective.
That being said, there are circumstances when it might be a good idea to include a job objective, but they are
rare. For example, if you believe the person reading your résumé will not be able to determine the position
you're seeking from your work history, then perhaps you should offer a job objective. Only rarely in our résumé
writing service do we include a job objective on a résumé written for a client. These clients usually have
absolutely no work history or no clear career path.
resumagic.com Page 8
Common Mistakes Made With Job Objectives
(1) Including a phrase in the job objective that states one is seeking an "entry level position" tells the
reader that the applicant doesn't have a high opinion of himself. One should never think of himself as
being qualified for only entry level positions, even if he has never held a job. Never admit on a résumé
that you are entry level.
(2) Some people make it very obvious that they are more interested in salary, benefits and promotions
than being an asset to the employer by offering job objectives that read as follows: "Seeking a highpaying position with lots of opportunity for advancement." Employers want to know what an applicant
can do for them, not what they can do for the applicant. Omitting self-serving phrases from job objectives
is very important if you want to keep your résumé out of File 13.
(3) Some people narrow their opportunities tremendously by offering a job objective that states they are
only interested in a specific position within a specific industry. An employer might read your résumé and
think you are the ideal candidate for a certain position within his company, but he doesn't call you for an
interview because your job objective tells him you wouldn't be interested.
While the job objective can be omitted from the résumé, a summary section should always be included. A
summary section is the way you capture the reader's attention in 15 seconds.
Résumé Components: The Summary Section
Return Home
Although the summary section is classified as an optional résumé component, we believe that is very
important that your résumé begin with a summary section in order to catch the reader's attention very
quickly. Employers and recruiters, faced with reading dozens of résumés, spend little time evaluating
each one thoroughly. Instead, they skim over each résumé very quickly or they put a clerical worker in
charge of making the first cuts. Therefore, if your résumé offers a summary section that tells the reader
immediately that you are qualified for the job, your résumé is much more likely to make the first few cuts
and hopefully wind up in the "call for an interview" pile.
How to Write a Good Summary Section
The first rule to follow when writing your summary section is to avoid fluff language. Fluff language
consists of unsubstantiated, over-used phrases that have made employers roll their eyes since the
1950s. Examples of these phrases are "highly-motivated self-starter" or "excellent communication skills".
These phrases are so overused that, if your summary section contains them, your résumé is probably
going to wind up in the garbage.
Every statement made in your summary section should be backed up with proof somewhere in
your résumé. For example, the fact that you are the founder of two highly successful companies and
have three degrees makes you a "highly-motivated, self-starter". The fact that you have "ten years
experience training new recruits and writing instructional materials" gives you the right to claim you have
"excellent oral and written communication skills" in your summary section. If you don't have such
experience to back up these overused phrases, then leave them off of your résumé.
The Summary Format
There is not one summary format that works for everyone. Your summary section can be a brief
paragraph consisting of a sentence or two, or it could be lengthy and consist of your major selling points
organized under 3, 4, or 5 different functional headings with bulleted sentence fragments under each of
these headings. How lengthy it is depends on the following factors:
resumagic.com Page 9
(1) Are you trying to enter a new field? If so, you will need an expanded summary section to overcome
your unrelated work history.
(2) Do you lack a work history? If so, you have no choice but to offer a lengthy summary section to
feature your skills since you don't have a work history to offer.
(3) Do you seek a promotion in the same field you've successfully worked in for years? If so, you
probably don't need a lengthy summary since your work history and past promotions will do most of the
selling. Your summary section need only tell the reader that you have a lengthy and successful work
history in X field and have excelled at doing A, B, C, D and E.
(4) Have you been working in the same field for years without a promotion? Then an expanded
summary section might help you finally get the promotion you want.
(5) Does your résumé reveal something negative, like employment gaps or no clear career path? If so,
featuring your selling points in an expanded summary section can help de-emphasize the negatives and
highlight the positives.
Samples
The first sample is a short and simple summary section in paragraph format that someone who has
worked steadily in the same field might use:
"Office manager and supervisor with ten years experience preparing payroll for a medium-sized
corporation. Thorough knowledge of payroll procedures and regulations, and highly proficient in popular
business spreadsheet and word processing software applications. Graduate, Acme Business College."
You might choose to use bullets in your summary section to better highlight your information. For
example:
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Ten years of publishing and information services experience for a major publishing firm
Extensive background in project management and new product development, including recruiting
and motivating authors on diverse projects
Designed and implemented dozen of innovative and award-winning publications and marketing
plans
Master's degree in Marketing
The above summaries are designed to pique the reader's attention enough so that he will want to read
the work history section. It is the work history section that will do most of the selling. Use this type of
summary if you have worked steadily in one field and have moved upward.
A general rule of thumb to follow: If you have a very powerful work history section and are seeking
employment in the same field, you probably don't need an expanded summary section.
Expanded Summary
An expanded summary section can take up the entire first page of a résumé and consist of four or five
functional sets with bulleted information under each subheading. People who offer such summaries
generally have a weak or damaged work history and are trying to compensate by offering all of their best
selling points in an expanded summary section. Those who might use this type of format are those trying
to enter a new field, get promoted, hide employment gaps, or get that first job.
For example, suppose that your work history can be described as "meandering." You even worked for
yourself for awhile. You have all sorts of skills and a good bit of experience, but you can't apply it to one
field. You are an ideal candidate for the expanded summary.
You can organize all you have to offer under categories called functional sets. Under each function, you
will list your top selling points as briefly as possible using sentence fragments set off with bullets. If you
resumagic.com Page 10
decided you have good management, supervisory, and communication skills, then you might organize
your summary section as follows:
Highlights of Qualifications
Management Skills
ƒ
ƒ

Offering a well-written summary section can only boost your odds of getting your résumé placed in the
"call for an interview" pile, therefore, it is worth spending some time creating a good summary.
Write the Summary Section to Match the Classified Ad
If you want to make your summary section even more powerful, you can match it to the job
advertisement. Doing this will make it even easier for the reader to see how well-qualified you are for the
job. After all, the skills, experience and traits listed in a job classified ad are the ones the employer
believes are most important.
When writing your summary section to match the job classified ad, be careful that you don't parrot or
mock the job classified ad by copying exact phrases from it. Instead, make it obvious you meet all or
most of the requirements asked for in the classified ad using your own words. If you don't meet a specific
requirement, leave it off and highlight the skills and qualifications you do have.
For example, suppose a classified ad reads as follows:
"WANTED: Office manager with experience in construction industry, payroll experience required,
knowledge of MS Word, Peachtree, fast typist, dictaphone, shorthand, have supervisory experience,
able to work in busy office for six bosses."
To make her résumé stand out from the 200 other applicants who will respond to this ad, an applicant
could tailor the summary section to match her skills to those asked for in the classified ad as follows:
Summary of Qualifications
Office Manager with 17 years experience working in the construction industry providing administrative
support to management. Highlights include:
ƒ
ƒ
Skilled in all aspects of office procedures, including payroll processing and account management
for medium-sized construction firm;
Experienced user of popular business spreadsheet and word processing software, highly
proficient in Peachtree and MS Word;
resumagic.com Page 11
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Hired, trained and supervised office staff consisting of eight clerks and junior secretaries;
Ability to work in a fast-paced, hectic environment while effectively providing support for fivemember management team;
Ability to type 80 w.p.m., with superior shorthand skills.
The above summary section makes it easy for the reader to see that this particular applicant has all of the
qualifications asked for in the ad and it encourages the reader to keep on reading her résumé with
renewed interest. And, if the work history section of her résumé supports the statements offered in her
summary section, her odds of getting the opportunity to interview for this job are high.
Résumé Components: The Work History Section
Return Home
Tip 1: Offer Brief Job Descriptions.
The number one complaint employers have about résumés are the long, detailed job duties and
descriptions offered by the majority of job seekers. Some of our clients present us with résumés that offer
such long and detailed job descriptions that they are five or six pages long!
A good rule of thumb is to summarize three or four of your most important job duties and focus on
accomplishments since the person reading your résumé is probably familiar with what job duties a person
in your field does on a routine basis. For example, if you are a software engineer, the reader is familiar
with the routine job duties that a software engineer performs, and therefore, it is a waste of space to list
all the job duties commonly performed by software engineers. Instead, a software engineer should focus
on how he made a difference performing his job, e.g., his special achievements and projects.
Tip 2: You Don't Have To Offer Your Entire Work History
Most employers are only interested in the work you've been performing for the last 15 to 20 years, so if
you want to leave off older work history, feel free to do so. If you're over fifty and think you might be
facing some age discrimination, omitting older work history will make you appear younger on paper and
help get your foot in the door.
Tip 3: Use Your Accomplishments to Make Your Résumé Stand Out
As mentioned in Tip 1 above, employers don't want to read a boring, long list of routine job duties. What
they really want to find out is what you can do for them, which means telling them how well you performed
in past jobs. Therefore, tell them not just what you did, but how well you did it.
Imagine you and another applicant, who happen to have the exact same work history and qualifications,
are sitting next to each other being interviewed for the same position. If the interviewer asked you why he
should hire you instead of the other person, what would you give as an answer? Since the other person
has the exact same work history and skills, you would have to distinguish yourself from the competition in
some manner. And the way to do it would be to tell the interviewer how you made a difference. This is
the same type of information you should offer on your résumé.
Ask yourself:
-- Did you increase sales or revenue and if so, by how much?
-- Did you streamline operations that reduced expenses and saved money?
-- Did you receive any awards or recognition for outstanding work?
-- Did you solve a major problem the company had?
-- Did you increase productivity, reduce employee turnover, improve efficiency?
-- What projects did you work on? Were they completed on-time and within budget?

Compare the quality of the typical résumé with one that really stands out:
Boring résumés read like this:

Responsible for filing documents
Reorganized filing system so sales representatives could
retrieve client files without assistance from clerks
Responsible for risk management

After reading the above, you might be thinking to yourself, "I don't have any accomplishments like those!"
As résumé writers, we are aware that many of you just graduated from college, work in support positions,
don't have any work experience, or just lack accomplishments. After all, not everyone is given the
opportunity to "increase revenue 500 percent". If this is a good description of you, keep reading for
techniques you can use to create a better work history section.
Work History Tips for Low Level Workers and Support Personnel
Although low-level workers and support personnel will never be able to claim that they "increased
revenue 500 percent", there is much they can do to make their résumé more powerful. Since these
workers are the ones who enable upper and mid-management to do what they do, their résumés should
demonstrate that they are highly effective in their support roles.
Low-level workers and support personnel should avoid offering a boring list of job duties that are common
to the particular field in which they work. Instead, they should focus more on listing work experience and
skills that are most beneficial to the employer, or that are not commonly performed by someone working
in that position. For example, everyone knows that a secretary types letters, answers the telephone,
makes copies and files documents, therefore, she doesn't need to list this on her résumé. Instead, she
should focus on what particular skills she has that another secretary might not have. For example, an
employer would want to know about the following skills and experience:
- Has 15 years experience working in the construction industry
- Can type 90 wpm without errors and do the work of two typists
- Is an expert user of the entire suite of Microsoft Office applications
- Has three years of experience supervising and training three junior clerks
- Helped write the new employee personnel manual
- Routinely composes correspondence for three managers
- Makes travel arrangements for 10 sales people
- Is in charge of arranging company meetings and the annual employee picnic
- Does the payroll for a 20 person office
- Completed workshops on payroll processing, employment law and office management
- Selected the new office computer equipment
resumagic.com Page 13
- Is a notary public
- Has always received an outstanding job performance
- Is a graduate of the Acme Secretarial College
How do your skills and experience help an employer in terms of profit?
If you can, tell the reader how your particular skills and experience benefit an employer in terms of
improving efficiency, saving time, reducing expenses, reducing turnover, increasing profit, streamlining
operations, etc., and you will produce a much more powerful résumé. Use quantitative data (numbers)
whenever possible to jazz up your résumé. For example, below are ways one can write job duties more
powerfully. Compare the before and after:
Before: Maintain A/R and A/P
After: Manage over 2000 A/R and A/P accounts; used Acme X software to design and implement new
recordkeeping system that improved average accounts receivable collections cycle from 30 to 25 days
Before: Responsible for filing
After: Manage and maintain files and filing system; designed and reorganized filing system allowing sales
reps to locate files without assistance and significantly reduced number of lost and misplaced files
Before: Answer the telephone
After: Answer more than 300 telephone calls per day for eight pharmaceutical sales reps using the Acme
5000 Deluxe Telephone System
Before: Type 90 wpm
After: Type 90 wpm without errors; routinely do the work of two secretaries, help others complete typing
assignments, and substitute for office staff on vacation or maternity leave
Resume Components: Computer Skills

Even if working with computers isn't a big part of your job or field, it is important to include whatever skills
you do have on your résumé unless you're top management. If your computer knowledge is basic, then
state that you are "proficient in Microsoft Office 2000 (MS Word, MS Access, MS Excel, MS FrontPage)".
If your technical knowledge is more extensive, you can organize it in groups under titles such as
operating systems, software applications, languages and hardware. Below is a sample section that
someone with extensive computer knowledge, such as an IT professional, might include on his résumé:

Distributing Your Résumé Online
Return Home
If you plan to post your résumé at career websites and send it in the body of e-mail messages, you need
to convert it to text format so you can cut and paste it into forms without it becoming a jumbled mess of
text and symbols.
A text résumé (sometimes called an ASCII résumé, e-résumé, Internet résumé) is one stripped of all its
formatting so that it can be easily cut and pasted into e-mail messages and online forms. Stripping it of
its formatting means removing all boldface, underlining, italics, bullets, and tabbing. All text should appear
flush left. If indention is used, it should be accomplished by using the space bar.
resumagic.com Page 16
All of the popular word processing programs provide you with the option to convert any document to
ASCII or MS-DOS text quite easily. Open your résumé file and "save as" using the following instructions.
Word processing software
Save As
WordPerfect for Windows
Microsoft Word
Microsoft Works
ASCII (DOS) Text
MS-DOS Text with Line Breaks
Text (DOS)
Regardless of what software program you are using, look for the keywords "ASCII, DOS, or text" when
deciding how to save your résumé in the proper format. While much of the objectionable formatting will
be removed when a document is saved in one of the above formats, sometimes all of it is not, especially
tabbing. Use the reveal code option of your word processing program to see if any tabs or other
formatting still remains. If it does, remove it. You can use the space bar as a substitution for needed
tabs.
Use the following guidelines to create a text résumé:
Rule 1: Do not use boldface, underlining, italics, bullets, tabbing, or special mathematical characters or
unusual fonts. Use the >, -, or * keys in place of bullets. All paragraphs should be flush at the left
margin. Your résumé should begin with your name on the first line; your street address on the second;
your city, state, zip on the third; etc.
Rule 2: Do not use word wrap. Hit the "Enter" key when you are at the end of every line. Each line
should be no more than 60 characters in length. (Anything that exceeds 60 characters will be pushed to
the next line and make your résumé look sloppy.)
Rule 3: Make sure that industry keywords are inserted into your résumé (see next section). Doing this
will increase the number of hits on your résumé when someone searches for a new employee. Avoid
abbreviations and acronyms when listing the university you attended, the degree you earned, etc.

ACADEMIC RESEARCH PAPERS AND PROJECTS
Engineering
WAN Network design: Designed a nationwide ATM network, with VoIP capabilities using SIP servers that required
an in-depth business case analysis with a detailed cost model, total cost of ownership and a bill of materials. The
network was designed for 1000 users, 500 workstations, and 50 servers. The design, testing and documentation were
done with Opnet, Visio, and Microsoft office. The objective of the project was to determine the cost, feasibility and
more importantly, the technical implications of voice and data convergence in an enterprise environment.
Enterprise network auditing: Using Opnet, and other network tools, an enterprise network architecture was audited
in order to demonstrate my IT analytical and troubleshooting skills that required identifying any bottlenecks and
vulnerabilities in the given network and recommending upgrades and modifications in order to modernize the
infrastructure.
Policy
Survey of domestic regulation of Enhanced Services and VoIP. This project documented the evolution of US
telecommunication policy from the 1934 Telecommunication Act to the recent FCC rulings on enhanced service
provision and universal service requirements. The objective of the research paper was to determine if the FCC and
Congress have promoted a regulatory environment that would generate new, competitive telecommunication
services such as VoIP by analyzing current policy and FCC recommendations on future policy orientations aimed at
catalyzing growth and competition in the telecommunication industry. The results of this analysis were set in the
context of the emerging trends in the information, communication, and technology sectors.
National Security: This research project was an in-depth study of the vulnerabilities and benefits associated with
the migration to converged, enhanced service telecommunication platforms. The scope of the study ranged form
critical infrastructure protection, cyber-vulnerabilities, emergency preparedness, CALEA, homeland security,
services reliability, and network resiliency. The impact that technological progress in telecommunications would
have on national security efforts was evaluated.
Impact of VoIP and Advanced Data Networks on Economic Growth of Underdeveloped Countries: Using the case
of the Senegal and the SAFE-3 fiber cable, the contribution advanced communication systems make to the
economic growth of an underdeveloped nation was evaluated by examining the ideal political and regulatory climate
necessary to foster investment in telecommunication facility and service build out.
Economics and Finance
VoIP Migration Cost Model: This group project involved detailed research on the costs of VoIP and an elaborate
cost model of different VoIP enterprise and carrier migrations (ranging from IP-Centrex to rip-and-replace) in order
to understand the true cost advantages, if any of a converged network using PSTN telephony networks as a
reference. The capital intensity and total cost of ownership of VoIP solutions was evaluated and some of the hidden
costs often omitted when determining financial implications of VoIP migrations were identified and isolated.
Financial Impact of VoIP on Telecommunications Industry: This project studied the financial and economic impact
of VoIP deployment on the information and communication technologies sector by evaluating the various network
and service deployment strategies suggested by industry players (CPE manufacturers, ILECs, CLECS, ESPs). With
a VoIP cost model, the future of VoIP was predicted, and its financial impact on the communications sector’s
growth was examined.
