Are Resumes Important

Published on 9/9/2017
For additional information  Click Here

Are resumes really important?

 

It depends.

 

Just think, you're applying for a job and they've asked you to send in a resume.

 

Like everyone else.

 

But you think to yourself will it really do me justice?

 

Will it make me stand out among the hoards of other people

who sent in their resume for the job.

 

Should you even have a resume at all?

 

Not according to Seth Godin.

 

Here's what he said

 

I think if you're remarkable, amazing or just plain spectacular, you probably shouldn't have a resume at all….

 

If you don't have a resume, what do you have?

 

How about three extraordinary letters of recommendation from people the employer knows or respects?

 

Or a sophisticated project they can see or touch?

 

Or a reputation that precedes you?

 

Or a blog that is so compelling and insightful that they have no choice but to follow up?

 

Some say, well that's fine, but I don't have those.

 

Yeah, that's my point. If you don't have those, why do you think you are remarkable, amazing or just plain spectacular?

 

It sound to me like if you don't have those, you've been brainwashed into acting like you're sort of ordinary.

 

Great jobs, world class jobs, jobs people kill for…those jobs don't get filled by people emailing in resumes.

 

Ever….
