Zoli posts over here, saying that resumes are a thing of the past and not needed any more.
In principle I agree with Zoli – my writing (both i virtual and print media), my business experience and my network should be more than enough information for any prospective employer. The reality however is very different from the concept. The vast majority of people cannot hope to be shoulder tapped for a role, rather they have to apply. When applying to an organisation what do they first ask for? You guessed it, a resume.
So yes, my blog is indeed my resume, but how many prospective employers will read it I wonder?
Post Script – No I’m not looking for a job!
