Summary transcript for 9 Feb 2012 #AWCchat: resumes and CVs

Thanks to everyone who participated in our tenth #AWCChat on Twitter, on the topic of whether resumes and CVs are still relevant.

There were four questions for discussion during this chat:

1)   Can a detailed LinkedIn profile substitute for a resume or CV? Why or why not?

2)   If we have to have a resume/CV, what tips can you share about keywords, terminology and resume scanners?

3)   What do you think about video resumes/CVs? Great idea, terrifying idea, or what?

4)   Since statistics show that referrals are the main way to get a job, how can your resume help with referrals?

Additional resource links from the chat included how to build a resume from a LinkedIn profile, and a sample video resume.

The next #AWCChat is scheduled for 16 February 2012, on the topic of social media ROI.
