No more Resumes!

I came across this interesting article from the Wall Street Journal this week entitled “No more resumes, say some firms.”

Inundated by traditional cover letters and resumes, some companies are requesting links to potential employees’ web blogs, social media outlets and even videos and other creative, non-traditional medias that can reflect a person’s professional accomplishments. Just another reason for students and professional to stay up to date with new social media technology and creative ways to market one’s self!
