Summary transcript for 13 Sept 2012 #AWCchat: does a résumé still matter?

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 33rd  #AWCChat on Twitter, about whether the good old paper résumé still matters in today’s hiring practices.

Four questions were posted for discussion:

1)   Let’s hear from the résumé advocates first. Why does this piece of paper still matter today?

2)   Now let’s hear from the folks who’ve stuck a fork in the résumé, ’cause it’s dead. Why do you think so?

3)   What can be done to modernize a paper résumé so that the most un-modern hiring folks will still accept it?

4)   What can each of us do THIS WEEK to have a better one-page career summary (aka résumé) in hand if needed?

It was a very lively discussion and included several recruiting and hiring experts; thanks everyone!

**  On Chirpstory – the summary transcript for 13 Sept chat on the relevance of the modern résumé.

The next chat is on Thursday, 20 September at 1130 am CST, about how to get a decent-paying, relevant job with a communications degree.

If you know any mass comm or journalism students, please let them know about the 20 September chat and encourage them to participate. The quality of the chat is directly proportional to how many people show up and participate!

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.

**  On Chirpstory – the summary transcript for 9 Feb chat on resumes and CVs.

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