Blog as the new resume?

I found this great blog posting with which I very much agree. I think blogging could become more important than your resume. Potential employers can look at your blog and see what you have been up to instead of just looking at a vanilla-like resume filled with buzzwords that someone copied from some web site. That’s not to say the resumes are a thing of the past, no. Resume will still be used to list your eduction, past jobs, achievement, etc. However, a blog actually proves that you did something.

Should Twitter be used as well?

  1. I agree, blogs are an important tool for documenting your career. And at the risk of sounding flippant, commenting on blogs should have a similar effect, as long as you use your name so you’ll be seen via Google.
