Is the resume finally dead? Hell, NO! Why do people think so? Lots of bad information out there, for example:
CNN asks, “Are social media making resumes obsolete?” They’re really confusing people. . .
CNN: “What manager is going to make a hiring decision based on an e-mail resume, when they can browse your social media?” WRONG QUESTION! • The resume does not decide “who gets hired” • The resume decides “who gets interviewed” • Very different questions! • Actual hiring decision is based on many factors such as – resume, background checks, social media and – most important of all – your interview and likability
Classic Resume: Just a 6-10 second scan Reviewer can scan 50 of these in 10 minutes
“Living Resume” • It’s graphical – but not easy to read – a data dump! • Can you imagine trying to scan 50 of these “living resumes” in less than 10 minutes? Who do you call?
Infographic Resume Can you imagine trying to digest 50 of these 10 minutes?
These graphical formats are too slow to replace the classic resume • UNLESS your job target is computer graphics. In that case, “the medium is the message” and they might work. • GOOD NEWS! Graphics can supplement a resume – especially on your LinkedIn profile, for example …
LinkedIn Profile LinkedIN does not replace your resume – LinkedIn IS your resume Basically the same content as your classic resume – just “old wine in new bottles”
Why do you need both? Classic resume and LinkedIN profile = Same content, different uses LINKED IN PDF RESUME • PUBLIC BROADCAST • PRIVACY OPTION • FIXED FORMAT • FORMATTING OPTIONS • ELECTRONIC / SEARCHABLE • EASIER TO READ for HUMANS • CAN TELL A PERSONAL STORY • NO PERSONAL PRONOUNS • MULTIMEDIA • PORTABLE PDF • NETWORKING OPTIONS
What Do Future Resumes Look Like? 5~10 Years From Now • Resumes and LinkedIN profiles are here to stay – in one form or another. • NEW: Your ONLINE REPUTATION (aka your “personal brand”) will dominate your resume & LinkedIN. • NEW: Employers might not need your resume – they’ll already know all about you! They’ll have your info in their proprietary databases. • NEW: Start building your online reputation now, so employers can see you out there in the cloud (databases). • “DON’T CALL US – WE’LL CALL YOU!” (uhhh…maybe.)
In the Future, Your Online Personal Brand (Reputation) = Your Resume How do you build your reputation, aka your “brand”? That’s the subject another video, but consider these: • Acquire bonafide expertise in a niche, an area of interest that you’re really passionate about. • Make yourself visible: LinkedIn, videos, blog, portfolio website, Kindle, social media, executive publicity ... • A handful of my clients are already doing this. I’m helping launch websites, video blogs, and so on. In a few years, everybody will be jumping on this bandwagon.
