The Resume – But Not as We Know It – The idea of the traditional resume is gone. Today employers are looking for something a little different, something that stands out from the crowd. With a world of technology at the fingertips of candidates, there is a greater expectation for them to go the extra mile. Simply producing a safe resume on paper is not enough.
The statistics speak for themselves: one in six job seekers credit social media with helping them land their current job, while a YouTube search on “video resume” throws up 1 million plus hits. These are the mediums that candidates are now using to seek work and it looks like they are paying off.
