Robert Merrill: conversation

Excellent Robert … It could be a kind of conversation with reference to online personal site.

It is all about the content … a career positioning document that must traverse all portals (online, Google, LinkeIn, YouTube). First, and foremost, the resume must have a crack-proof foundation! This is not defined by page length or media venue. It’s defined by creating a message that wraps tightly around a target reader’s needs and future wants, saying to the reader, “I get you and can help perpetuate YOUR story!”

Very interesting thought Jac.

“It’s defined by creating a message that wraps tightly around a target reader’s needs and future wants.”

I think employers realized now the general message so a target resume fulfilling the employer’s needs will be the future.

Thanks for your great input.

Perhaps much of the above and more. We are evolving and though LinkedIn has the feel of a resume, it is not one. The ability to host recommendations is excellent. Google and the underlying other searches on Facebook and Twitter and new social media applications will grow as online savvy employers realize that the picture is much bigger than once thought.

I can see there was a huge coverage for VisualCV but didn’t see employer request it! Linkedin could still be a good reference online. I agree that the picture is much bigger :)

Mohammed,

This is an excellent thread and poll! My vote would be split… like all other URLs claimed by over-zealous website buyers, FirstnameLastname.com will not be available for many jobseekers. (how many BobDJones can there be?)

I believe that Google search, LinkedIn Profile, and traditional resume (possibly hosted on a site like VisualCV, but still used on paper) will be the overall “resume” of the future for some time.

Paper, as an example, is a great way to stand out. A 9X12 missive directed in confidence to a hiring manager is not likely to be ignored now, and barring any physical mail security issues, should continue to be viable for many years to come.

Remember that change happens slowly, and as LinkedIn is becoming the trend “resume” of the moment, there will be activity on it for years to come. After all, many job seekers are still using resume objectives, and those originated in the 1980′s!

Perhaps yet another web-based source of information (a hybrid Visual CV/LinkedIn/networking site) will emerge as well.

What WON’T change: the need for (and challenge of) presenting yourself as a branded solution to employer’s needs.

Again, very interesting post!

Laura

From the standpoint of impact, a website or other online-focused resume will fit the bill, and will offer the flexibility of adding graphics, multimedia or attachments.

But from a practical standpoint, a few issues stand in the way:
1. Many large companies scan resumes for keywords, which would still mandate a “detachable” resume
2. If you’re applying to different jobs that would require customized resumes, you’d need multiple online presences — is that too much to ask?

Looking forward to resolving these issues, though.
Great conversation!
Ken

I like the last quote. We need more linchpins :)

I think hybrid Visual CV/LinkedIn/networking site are good combination as VisualCV miss the networking part and Linkedin the Visual part. Also, I think less detail resume is better than pages of text.

Thanks for the insight.

Good points Ken.

1 – I think the system will change now to scan online sites. No big deal here!

2 – That’s a good reason to stand out for something or become a linchpin. You don’t need to keep full resume online, why? to have a reason an employer call you for details or interview.

Thanks,

Outstanding commentary by all of these savvy career coaches. Like many, I believe this to be a combination of tools which showcase the career seeker’s personal brand. A hybrid approach (including Facebook) makes it simple for an employer to observe the candidate’s personality, interpersonal interactions, professional background, presentation of skills, abilities in the area of leadership and communication and career passion. In this way, the employer ‘gets a feel for the person’ ie “Are they a good fit?” which is essentially, today’s first step in the interview process.

In my opinion, a strong accomplishment-based resume in addition to participation on LinkedIn, micro-blogging on Twitter, Facebook professional/personal crossover, FB Fan pages, Visual CV as well as a blog are a win/win for the employer and the candidate.

I think you are saying: Have an online trusted identity.
