I was at an Amazon recruiting event last night and I came up with an interesting bit of advice for talking to Amazonians about your past work: if you can find a way to work a number into a sentence, it's probably to your advantage. "I worked 6 months on a web site supporting 75 internal users who filed an average of 20 support tickets a day" speaks volumes. As opposed to "I supported a busy internal IT support system". Data driven people want to hear data about your work.
