    Thanks @Pamela 🐝 Williams sorry you had to experience that and that it is all too common. There can definitely be a disconnect with HR and Management as well as HR being pressured to hire quickly, so they have to rush through the process and end up with a stack of resumes that don't match what they are looking for. As you shared, its a waste of the candidates time and the employer. #2

    Great post Jennifer and hopefully every HR/recruiter in the U.S. will read it! :-). Okay, that's overstating but the most off-putting experience I had during my job search dealt with a job description that had nothing to do with what was needed. Three 80 mile commutes (one way) later a senior exec finally got it right and we both realized I did not have the skill set for the job. It wasn't totally the recruiter's fault, it was the original hiring manager (no longer with the company) who didn't understand her own project and so didn't understand who she needed. It was so frustrating, especially after I had turned down to other potential positions because it was a 'sure thing'. If I found fault at all with the recruiter it's that they didn't do their homework because it was obvious within 5 minutes with the exec that they needed a full-fledged Data Scientist. So here's a question; shouldn't Technical Recruiters have a basic knowledge of the tech industry? As soon as the exec said; "data encompassing millions of transactions a day", I knew exactly what they needed.

    I saw your quote, I asked a question and the response of relevance and survival did not ring with me.
    I was thinking, I dive for myself or I dive for someone else, I don't dive for the ocean, we don't owe each other anything, we just benefit from the interaction, the reward thing and the struggle for relevance, I didn't relate to it.

    Excellent advice:

    "Your professional brand consists of four elements: who you are, what you do, what you’re known for, and where your influence lies.
    ...there are a gazillion other people out there who share the identical title and/or responsibilities with you.
    Your employee brand is what differentiates YOU"

    ALSO:
    "many... are reluctant to represent themselves being 'only' ... whatever title might apply. That’s where a talented resume writer has value - knowing how to convey your multiple talents into a branding statement that will make headhunters and recruiters take notice."

    Yes, it's got to be focus and not flexibility when you desire to initiate anything important. Focus on right things at the right time allows you to manage time and achieve results whereas there's a risk of deviations and delay when you take up things with flexible approach.

    #1 Thanks for your comment Robert and interesting discussion with Kevin. I work with a fair few millennials and it's a tough world they face. Balancing being a generalist with a specialism can be difficult, as by definition they are mutually exclusive. At the end of the day it's how we all choose to communicate our story – as an entrepreneur running my own business I have to know about lots of things, but my specialism when it comes to my offer to clients is career management and executive job search. Thanks again for taking the time to read. Best wishes, Simon

    Good post, Simon. My experiences with positions and candidates in the insurance industry showed a trend of job seekers boasting they could wear many hats. While this may have been beneficial in some cases, it was determined that the candidate that was proficient in one segment was a better selection. The candidate's drive and focus were more important to the position than a candidate that knew a little about all segments but not an expert in one. For example, an insurance underwriter that underwrites property/casualty/auto/inland marine/workers comp/umbrella is usually not an expert in any one segment. Of course, there are exceptions.
    Kevin Pashuk
    22/11/2016 #4 Kevin Pashuk
    #3 Perhaps the challenge is defining the specialty? For example... if I say I'm a painter, or a writer, what does that really mean? If I look at my title (Chief Information Officer) it is as broad as heck, but if you ask me what I do, I would say my specialty is building high performing technology teams to support strategic change in organizations... but the HR systems don't have a category for that.

    Yes, I've heard that "T-shaped people" mentioned before. Having had IBM as a client, this doesn't surprise me at all. Essentially it's saying "We want you to be qualified at all things, but especially good at one thing." In other words, be a generalist and a specialist at the same time. Again, it's a Swiss Army Knife. You fill offices with people who are capable but never outstanding. I don't think I've ever met a truly passionate generalist, except that they passionate about being generalists (sort of like multitaskers)#2
    Kevin Pashuk
    22/11/2016 #2 Kevin Pashuk
    #1 Enjoyed the post Simon. It's important to know the value you bring to an organization. Being a generalist doesn't necessarily make you good at anything. It's like a Swiss Army Knife. It does a lot of things, but none of them well.

    Since this is a reply to your comment Robert, it is tough for millennials. Many of them will be working in jobs that we old fogies can't even dream of. Some of them don't even exist now... so how do you counsel young folk if not to be a generalist and flexible? Perhaps the behemoth IBM had it right a few years back when they talked about wanting 'T-shaped' people - those with a broad range of capability (albeit fairly shallow), and a deep area of expertise.
    Robert Cormack
    22/11/2016 #1 Robert Cormack
    This is a good post, Simon, and certainly better expressed than most recruitment articles. I've always wondered what's driven us to be generalists. Is it because companies have spread our responsibilities (remember when we had secretaries?), or, as a Millennial once told me, we HAVE to be generalists to succeed today. We have to know many things. Obviously, as you've found in your business, generalists are hard to place because you're trying to find their "value." What makes them worth a certain salary. Consider this: If it's a bitch for you, imagine what it's like for all those Millennials believing (being trained to believe) they have to be all things to all people. I wish we had more specialists. Maybe that's unpopular right now, but you seem to get it. Thanks.

    INTJ here. I have found that while I am not particularly adept at sales, I am very adept at support. Of course this is just from a phone perspective. I can take incoming calls where I am supposed to be the expert, just not very good at outgoing calls to instigate the conversation, except in cases where I am returning them. Being introverted to me, says more about how I process the world internally and where I find my inspiration to learn stuff. As a Project Manager, something I have done for a living, the key has always been knowing my processes cold for running meetings and such, innovation comes in the quiet time, if I can find a place to think.

    Yes, Deb!! My thoughts exactly! Although I'm an introvert, I'm far from anti social or un-communicative. With the exception of a few jobs like public speaker or outbound sales, an outgoing personality won't make a better employee (and I'm willing to bet it's a rare occasion that introverts would even apply for those positions!) I agree that the biggest qualifier should be whether you can do the job, and it's unfortunate that introverts are expected to change their behavior or overcome their "weaknesses" just to be on a level playing field. Great response!!
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    10/10/2016 #5 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    Funny how we were just having this conversation elsewhere.... the gist being that introversion and shyness are not synonymous.

    The problem with using personality characteristics is that people are very multi-layered and even a very very introverted person like myself will react to different situations in different ways based on a number of criteria. My own opinion is that job interviews need to be focused on something they mostly ignore right now - can the person do the job. Forget about background, personality, and hypothetical situations. Define questions to ask all the candidates about the work that needs to get done in the next month, 90 days, six months, etc. Ask them how they would accomplish x or contribute to y. Compare apples to apples.

    As a repetive scoring INTJ in countless Myers-Briggs instruments, I can relate. Still, sometimes your social environment forces you to negate your default personality setting. For example, as an INTJ I had to express E-NTJ tendencies because my job--infantry officer--required that I lead and communicate often. Especially in front of crowds of soldiers. So, in spite of my natural anxieties in front of crowds, being a leader meant pushing my boundaries and suppressing shyness.
    Thank you for championing introverts.
    Pssst...we rule!

    Why the First Person Resume is Disrupting Recruiting

    I can dress it up, dumb it down, shove it down the Twit Stream in 144 characters, smother it in Pineapple and skewer it wit a pen - it all matters not - the resume (at least mine) is a worthless waste of time. I would get more traction by twerkin in a banana hammock on Instagram ~ it is afterall what they want....that and a herd of Spirit Animals.

    #7 OMG, Jared! First of all, thank you for your comments. Proof that ATS are the black hole into which resumes fall, never to be viewed by human eyes, is in the proliferation of companies that have developed software to game the ATS. Where will it end?
    HR - let's go retro. Let's actually, as Deb Helfrich points out, write meaningful job descriptions. This article I wrote for Cornerstone OnDemand goes into detail about how companies can write meaningful job descriptions. https://goo.gl/IjdEQT
    Then, let's do what First Round, the company profiled in the article above does; employ a high level HR person to actually READ resumes and get to know the candidates, so they can hire for traits, not keywords.

    #5 Of course, Lynda! I have no clue on timing. Moreover, your work in soliciting feedback from recruiters is real proof.

    And I sincerely thank you for taking your time to share your experience with your First-person résumés.
    I think you did a fabulous job of explaining it, with examples.

    I highly recommend and hope more people notice!

    #2 Thank you, Jared Wiese, both for sharing and for taking the time to post a comment. Humans are programmed to enjoy hearing stories, so bringing that understanding to the job search is an important insight.
    Yes, I've heard of Liz Ryan's human voice resume - and it doesn't matter who got there first because if two HR professionals advocate the same strategy, job candidates ought to consider it.

    #1 Thanks, as always, Deb Helfrich, for adding value with your comment. Yes, job descriptions have been a contributing factor to the problem of matching the right candidate with a job, but JDs are written by HR, and I think that we - in many ways - are the source of why recruiting is broken. Searching for ways to make recruiting easier by outsourcing the initial decision to ATS software is the biggest mistake. Yes, recruiting takes time, but honor the process and don't rely on software to do the job.

    Great post, @Lynda Spiegel.
    Telling your story, at least right under the top Summary section is the way to go! “Show, don’t tell,” "the job seeker’s unique value proposition".

    As I think @Deb 🐝 Helfrich was saying, most listings and resumes have to fit 3rd person to get into the Black Hole.

    Ever hear of Liz Ryan and her Human Voice Resume? Close

    Very relevant article, @Lynda Spiegel. You've done a great job showing how a number of factors are contributing to this shift to a first person resume format. It really had become comical that so many resumes written in the old style would say the exact same thing. I'd hope that as resumes evolve, so will job descriptions, as they are really the source of the problem. People started describing themselves, not as people, but as cogs that fit into the slots poorly defined by the stilted language employed in job descriptions. The whole process became, in some ways, a theoretical exercise.
