    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.

    Lots of useful facts in this post. Still, the story ends with a caution about maximizing hobbies as one of the appealing aspects of this platform--US employers simply may not care. Surprising to learn that the US membership in beBee is ~140K. I assumed it was much higher. Clearly, there's room to climb before reaching cruising altitude.
    Good luck comes to mind.

    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.

    Nice to meet you @Christine Baker - Welcome to beBee - keep on buzzing!

    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.

    #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.

    #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.

    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.

    Thanks to @David B. Grinberg for tagging me on this one. Fascinating to think of human resources & recruitment in historic context, I never really considered the impact on this industry outside my own experience over the past couple of decades. As @Franci Eugenia Hoffman so wisely pointed out, "history has a way of repeating itself in one form or another."

    I enjoy the correlations as you mentioned them historically and characterizing the relationships between old and new.
    It also gave me a view at part of the bigger picture of Monster and its part in this fast growing world. Thanks.

    History has its way of repeating itself in one form or another. It's up to us to learn from it and move forward with it. This is a very worthy article John Bersentes and thank you for sharing.

    #9 Sara thank you for taking the time to read the post - you raise some thought provoking questions- I think back to some lessons in film studies ( growth of video ) that as a new medium it forces us to use all of our senses but if you go to Hong Kong where the environmental conditions are such that new generations are prone to spend exorbitant amounts of time inside , and in doing so have created their own cultural experiences e.g. mass events of collectively coming together to watch other gamers play in contrived virtual worlds e.g. Second Life Xbox and the such -recruiters for instance in the armed forces early on determined that to garner attention for newly minted recruits meant they would have to break through the electronic bubble if you will - lead to games like "Americas' Game" where brick and mortar location or a rolling semi trailer truck would provide experiential learning opportunities of war games is telling and should be covered in Part II - but absent my limited understanding or study in game theory being what it is, the Digital persona we create for ourselves and how we come to terms with self Actualization as our Digital lives coalesce could be a good topic to explore as well as a double edge sword - we could lose sight of the Agoura and the power of collective debate without personal contact and interactions that comes from the classroom which in turn inform our sense of self and role as a member of a society, class, group or organization.

    Part 2/2 How do we define or describe or even communicate what is the global village or who is the Digital Citizen? I agree with your process through; "Timeless truths that can help inspire creating an epic culture and brand identity is essential today amidst increasing amounts of data and content generated, thus a signal or the sirens if you will calling us or evoking a sense of purpose." You speak of deriving meaning though language, communication and expression. We need to stay connected to how it was done before because we are still the sensory beings that developed language and used the written word, the visual arts, music, architecture, to convey who we are and what we do. If we are engaging in a sensory deprived technology, rather than sacrifice those senses which are not being used, incorporate them in enabling these tools to be used to their creative potential. And so, I agree that it is crucial to have teams made up of diverse abilities; "In your future force, like in the ancient times, the Greeks were armed with the knowledge of science, engineering, mathematics, and competencies that came together through trade and commerce. They didn't have much land to be an agrarian society but instead were situated to become a melting pot of trade and culture."

    Looking forward to Part II.

    Part 1/2 Great work @John Bersentes. What an entrance into beBee! Welcome! Just for the record, I followed you in response to you following me before I read your Buzz. I also want to thank @CityVP Manjit for bringing my attention to your work. He is right on the quote that would spark my interest, "As storytelling enables us to learn, metaphor helps us to apply logic and reasoning to the principles of the human condition or in talent management the human capital continuum if you will. " Storytelling and metaphors, important abilities to utilize towards successfully achieving our goals. I am encouraged to see you stress these two throughout your work. The other couple of things that I am encouraged to see you stress in this article is identity and history: "But if we look to history it teaches us that the notions of identity, culture, diversity and inclusion, as well as cognitive or more aptly career development, have and continue to provide a framework or the pillars that can support value creation as they always have. These factors can help drive growth or spur a decline or fall from grace for any organization that fails to develop strategies to address them."

    I read this entire buzz and after reading @CityVP Manjit, I don't have anything to add, with the exception of excellent food for thought on this buzz and CityVp's comments resonated so well!!!

    Part 1 of 2 A couple of things I like about this buzz is that it is not talking about citizens but "A Digital Citizen" and for me talent is the individual. If we are talking about team, then fine we are talking about group. I have served HR but I do not belong to HR and all our work was engaged with corporations because early on in our career we quickly caught wind of the role of RFP's in public organizations. No matter how big the corporation we worked with, we always operated to the level of voice and in the case of corporations to listen to the client voice and then the voice within the organization, informed by the client voice.

    The second thing I like is the reference to Athens. I first came into awareness of Athenian references while being a member of a technology forum called AlwaysOn. I used to participate in that group under the moniker of "Mark Zorro". There I distinctly remember the founder of AlwaysOn - Tony Perkins coin a phrase to describe Silicon Valley as the "Athens of the Information Age" and his goal was to extenuate and even revive that meme in the 21st Century. Instead of talking in terms of Athens, however, the arrival of social media led the meme to talk of tribes. That simply led us back to the group meme which was reinforced with devastating societal impacts on the individual of the industrial age. So I am interested in the individual and in my IMHO anyone interested in talent needs to be interested in the individual.

    Part 2 of 2 In a big data universe power can flow to the individual but we continue to reside in the meme of the group, so it is more challenging for individuals to liberate themselves so they can see for themselves how the relationship between powerful emerging technologies and talent can evolve. For John Bersentes, I see him represent public service and HR leadership and also have great affinity with technological and digital development as it relates to talent.

    There is a binding glue here that brings all of this together and that glue is servant leadership.

    Servant leadership brings all other functions into the conversation, while those with public service and HR leadership operate in functions where the best professionals exhibit the great qualities of servant leadership. This means servant leadership becomes the bridge where ideas connect and then flow into what Reid Hoffman called "network intelligence".

    Are we in the dark ages of talent? I think that we can say that we are IF we are still muddling around in the memes of groupthink and not paying attention the awesome insight capability of emerging technologies and data science. I also think we are if we as an individual cannot see for ourselves how to make the most of this abundant potential of insight. Through servant leadership approaches in a networked age, we begin to see talent in whole new ways, the way talent should be seen. as an individual. Yet we also exist in an age where groupthink is prevalent and groupthink can aptly be called the dark ages. So I am on board with this progressive view of the future.
