The New Resume Guide : Resume in the Digital Age
Out of work? Need a job? Discover how to create a winning resume for the Digital Age! More
Please allow me to introduce you to Harry. Harry is in his early thirties, married and a new father. Sadly, he was laid off from his job and faces the enormous hurdle of finding himself a new one soon.
Like thousands of others, Harry has been tossed into the bottomless pit of unemployment through no fault of his own. He's just another casualty of the floundering economy.
And, like those thousands of other casualties, he is depending on his resume to get his foot in the door at a new company. He follows the same path the masses are trudging along.
He is sending out cookie cutter resumes by the hundreds, hoping to snag an appointment with a potential employer. He is smart enough to know that the resume won't get him a job but he is banking on it getting him an appointment.
The problem is that Harry's resume is "cookie cutter." It looks and sounds just like a resume his father might have sent out thirty or forty years ago. Unfortunately, that format just doesn't work anymore.
Is there a solution for Harry's problem?
As a matter of fact there is.
Harry needs to create a resume for the digital age! We aren't talking about just using the computer to type out his resume. Resume writing for the digital age far surpasses the tool you use to create it.
You need to ensure that your application receives serious consideration more often. You also need to be ready for future developments and learn about traps and problems that new technologies bring with them.
While we need to be aware of the modern options, there is still much value in traditional methods. You need a strong personal network and to know how to protect it from potential damage.
Despite the hazards, we need to be confident and forward-looking in our use of the Internet.
And we need to be ready to make the best use of whatever is coming next. All this and more is presented for you in "The NEW Resume Guide."
