traditional resumes.

there is little place for traditional resumes in modern job-searching.

why?

3 main reasons:

a tighter job market means increased competition, therefore more differentiation is needed to stand out from the crowd.

current career patterns demonstrate that we change careers often.

increased use of online creates increased pressure for a digital resume.

so, what is a traditional resume?

a traditional resume is document that outlines all the things wehave done in the past including employment history, education etc.

that’s great.

that’s great. if you are applying for a role that requires 5+ years experience.

problem.

nobody has 5+ years experience anymore

because we change careers often.

there is a deficit between what we want to do and what we have done.

a traditional resume is not enough to get you over the line.

there needs to be a change.

so, instead of providing a document of all the things we have done.

why not provide a document of all the things we can do.

pitch for work.

pitch for work. rather than apply for jobs.

there will be more emphasis on transferrable skills and less emphasis on years of experience.

modern job searching looks like this:

cover letter

cover letter NO

cover letter NO resume

cover letter NO resume NO

cover letter NO resume NO profile

cover letter NO resume NO profile YES

cover letter NO resume NO profile YES pitch

cover letter NO resume NO profile YES pitch YES

a tighter job market means increased competition, therefore more differentiation is needed to stand out from the crowd.

guess what?

everybody has a resume.

few people have a pitch.

increased use of online creates increased pressure for a digital resume.

so digitise your pitch.

modern job searching looks like this:

profile

profile +

profile + pitch.

profile + pitch. YES

profile + pitch. YES that’s it.

profile

profile =

profile = some brief background information on yourself.

pitch

pitch =

pitch = a document outlining how you would approach the work.

there is little place for traditional resumes in modern job-searching.

there needs to be a change.

the focus is not on:

the focus is not on: what you have done.

the focus is not on: what you have done. the focus is on:

the focus is not on: what you have done. the focus is on: what you can do.

Modern job searching

Modern job searching =

Modern job searching = profile

Modern job searching = profile +

Modern job searching = profile + pitch.
