Nice post by The Social Revolution Blog, as he discusses the various factors of: Resume 2.0.
I agree with his thoughts about resumes in general: they've been around a long time and they aren't going anywhere.
Blogs will not replace resumes.
But one's blog might be the very reason I decide to reach out to a specific candidate. Bottomline, I can learn things about a candidate's blog (their opinions - passion - dislikes - even things they don't want me to know) that I might not be able to glean from their resume.
But if I'm the candidate, I want to send you my resume. You can read my blog and get a general feel for my recruiting philosophy. But many of the bell/whistle accomplishments that you would need to know about me, are not going to be communicated via my blog.
So, in my opinion, I have two resumes:
- Soft copy
- Blog copy
