    How do you place entries for your freelance projects in the resume. Do you place each entry separately for each of the major projects or group them all under one entry perhaps. Especially if you have had one or two non-freelance jobs.

    If you've done some other jobs then I would group the freelance projects together under one section. If you spread them out too much then you risk the chance that it looks like you are padding your resume.

    Another question about resumes. I'm running a small company, hosting, design, etc. Should I include that on the resume? Is that a good thing or bad?

    People are always afraid of what and what not to put on a resume... Put as much relevant stuff first, then fill it up until you get a full page. More experience is always better... Also, don't be shy to put things you havne't been paid for on there.

    I haven't had to do a resume in 4 years myself, so I'm a little rusty on the subject, but I do have a certain outlook on the subject as an employer.

    Personally, I think listing individual projects on a resume is a good thing as long as it's relatively compact. What I would do is something like this:
    Freelance/Contract Web Designer/Developer, April 2002 - current
    As a freelance designer and developer, I am responsible for the creation, modification and ongoing maintenance of the websites listed below:


    (Note: the last site is legit. It's for a Canadian TV show called Buzz. And for those of you who know the show, YA HEARD ME!}

    Make sure you hyperlink the websites in your resume so that people can easily click on them and see the individual websites. Even if you're handing the resume to someone offline, it's not a bad idea, since the blue text and underline will let people see that it's a website hyperlink and they may type it in manually anyway.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.
