Over the last few months, I have learned that one of the best people to get career advice from is Seth Godin. I have a few posts in the hopper that I will finish up and get posted within the next few days.
Except I saw a post he did today on how resumes will not help you impress employers. What an amazing idea! One that I totally agree with. The last paragraph reads:
“Great jobs, world class jobs, jobs people kill for… those jobs don’t get filled by people emailing in resumes. Ever.”
Show don’t tell. I know that I can improve on a lot of that stuff. I have a few projects that I have been working on that I need to expose. I’ll do that over the next few weeks.
Those of you who frequent my site may have noticed that I even removed a link to my resume. I had it on my page for my job hunt last year.
Thinking back to my job hunt, it wasn’t my resume that got me my current job. I’m sure it played a role in getting it but my blog got me noticed.
So even though I have not posted as much as I would like, what I am doing here has made a difference. It makes me wonder what could happen if I devote more time to it. What have you done in the past to get noticed?
