I agree with OQ and E.

Put it in.

I’ve been through countless resumes and the ones that stand out are always the ones with something extra, something relatable like that.

It's definitely going on.  In what form I'm not exactly sure yet.  I quickly grew sick of how subjective this all is.  Almost all of the stuff I've read or advice I've gotten has directly contradicted something from somewhere else.  It's pretty frustrating.

Whatever you do, make sure it's as long as possible.

Someone might have the right skills and be a terrible fit for the team. Putting something like that on the resume increases relatability if you ask me. Do it.

Agreed.  You can put "built custom amp for top recording artist" or some shit like that because not everyone will know who Joe Perry or Aerosmith are and may not be impressed.  But leaving it vague will get they're minds wondering who it was.  And it's relevant experience since you're doing electrical engineering. Not only did you do something cool, you're a badass at it.

I'd put it in the resume.  Nowadays, in some fields there is no guarantee there will be an interview.  Don't do a Stan Heath and save the fresh legs for a game you may never play.

You bring that shit up in the interview tho.  That’s a cool thing to say and will grab their attention.

I can't make it happen, but if it does, it's an internet or server thing, not a woopig code thing.  No changes have been made within the past few weeks.

It's working gloriously fine today.

Acater, go fuck yourself.  And your mom.

the one person that it does resonate with will think it's really cool.

it would stand out for some people, and that's worth it.  If nothing else, it's a conversation starter and something for the recruiter to remember you by.

This is pretty much how I felt about it but thanks for the confirmation.

And in today's TLDR I'm definitely keeping it to a page.  With a huge font and ample spacing.
