Five Reasons Why Your Online Presence Will Replace Your Resume in Ten Years

Cary Ruterman

Blogging provides anyone with an internet connection a forum and an opportunity to discuss any topic.  But according to a Forbes article entitled, “5 Reasons Why Your Online Presence Will Replace Your Resume in 10 Years,” it has other benefits as well!

Here they are:

  1. Social networking use is skyrocketing while email is plummeting
  2. You can’t find jobs traditionally anymore
  3. People are managing their careers as entrepreneurs
  4. The traditional resume is now virtual and easy to build
  5. Job seeker passion has become the deciding factor in employment

A traditional resume is two-dimensional and an online presence allows individuals to define themselves and showcase character.  This applies to companies as well.  Facebook pages and Twitter accounts (to name a few) give personality to a business and its employees.

This is the era of tweeting, posting, blogging and chatting.  Take advantage of it!  Create an online presence and use it as a vehicle to reveal interests, experiences, stories and individuality. CJP
