Why bother having a resume?

Interesting post. Did the internet kill the paper resume? Or if you’re really that “amazing”, is a resume all the more necessary?

I believe a combination of both always works best. The resume is not dead, definitely not in this part of the world. I include my linkedin url, so the employer can find out more and check recommendations. I used to have my (old) blog url, but that’s probably not the first thing they want to see. In addition, finding my linkedin profile through the blog took at least 2 clicks.

One thing’s for sure. Your virtual presence can be a great tool to let employers know more about you.
