In addition to his resume, Santa is taking advantage of all the online resources he can to promote himself. He's got a VisualCV, with a great photo of his co-worker Rudolph, and a LinkedIn Profile, too.

In 1972, I – as a recently relocated spouse – I took a job for all the wrong reasons. The training was back in my home town. The position required that I (and the elves) wear the same dress 6 days a week for 7 weeks while I operated the Photo with Santa operation at a local mall. If you want more info for Santa’s resume, I’ll be happy to provide it. I worked with him (them) for seven weeks.
