Lately I have been going to a weekly networking meeting. These meetings usually have speakers that talk about anything from finding that perfect job or using social media and how it can help you with your career.

Recently we had a speaker that talk about the traditional resume being boring and that as a job seeker, we need to define ourselves from the rest of the population. Although the traditional resume is still important, he recommend that we have an online resume site (ex. yourname.com). With a resume site, you can have your resume posted with links to your important sites such as LinkedIn, portfolio, or blog. You can display important achievements and designs that you can’t do on a paper resume.

For a designers, social media consultants, and new media developers, having a resume site could be what gets you that new job or contract. But having a site needs to be more than just text, it needs to be design friendly and actually help your potential employer or client choose you over someone else.

Crafting the Perfect Modern Resume

Earlier today, I came across an article on Mashable.com that talks about creating a modern Resume. In the article, the author shares a great Infographic from Colorado Technical University. The infographic has some great tips on building a digital resume and how to update your traditional paper resume.

  3. The problem with technology is that everyone can have the perfect resume. It’s becoming impossible to separate one from the other. The resume only gives a snapshot of what potential a candidate has.It’s like judging the book by the cover. Can a potential employer really judge a candidates suitability by an impressive resume? Can a candidate be rejected because he or she uses the wrong font? Can a candidate be rejected because he or she hasn’t enough followers on Twitter or friends on Facebook? The Resume should only be the starting point for an employer to find the right candidate not the finishing point.
