Monday Musings: Fun with Resumes

3 Nov

So something I’ve been thinking about of late is resumes. The thing about resumes is that they are most critical outdated pieces of paper. We need them to get jobs but the “conventional wisdom” on resumes seems old to most technophiles. Yet, we continue to use the resume with a few caveats. Obviously some companies accept LinkedIn or visual resume sites for their applications but those are still few and far between.

Then we also have the issue of what a writer includes on a resume. Do I include things I’ve written? Where I’ve been published if I’ve been published? Resumes to me are just a crazy hotbed of rules and regulations that are clear but out of focus.

What do you think of resumes? How would you display your history if you had a choice?
