@mr@abadesi I would tend to agree. I think it's fundamentally a norm that cannot fully be removed, even just for the reason of Corp/HR processes that are in place and the $$ spent on those systems. I would tend to agree, in addition to. I think the resume is outdated, but a requirement. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that the process of acquiring talent cannot improve..
Indeed, personal conversation reveals you to the recruiter much deeper and increases your chances to get a job. "The better the resume the better employee" is absolutely wrong maxima, but still there are some correlation between resume quality and employee qualification. All of us in the same playground with equal rules based on rule "resume first" and we should keep this rule and try to promote ourselves better despite fallacy of approach "resume first".
@mr@eugenelorenc I would agree there is some - Shows a level of intellect and conceptual thinking to put together a good resume. However, with the growing amount of 3rd party services focused on resumes building, I feel the quality of resume often is correlated with the "maker" incorrectly. Is just getting a 3rd party company to do your resume enough? Does it show intelligence with just the simple action?
And what if the playing ground was still even and each person was given just as much of an opportunity to be selected.. Check out candiSee.com as I would be curious your thoughts.
