The Resume May Be Dying?

Well, not quite, but here's some interesting insights on how some companies are going more non-standard routes with resumes.  It's a bit fluffy, I'd have liked more information and statistics.

Now one thing to take away from this is that there's some cool ideas in here you could use no matter how traditional a company may feel about a resume:

  • You could do a video application of yourself and store it privatley, linking a potential employer or client to it.
  • You could work on your web presence (which I've hammered on anyway).
  • You can demonstrate your skill with projects.

Maybe you can get a jump on a trend – or make life more interesting for some poor sot in HR reading the 400th resume.
