    #5 if that's possible, Mike, sure. But I'm not convinced that AI will ever overtake human intuition. Some of the best hires I've ever made have been outliers who would have never made it through ATS because they didn't match the job requirements at all - they just struck me as being interested and capable of learning.

    @Lynda Spiegel I think everything is and everyone is now at maximum potential by taking as a given that its all a "sharing economy" now --also; we should make sure not to use anachronisms (such as "pre-agricultural barter system" rather than "Internet of Things Based Sharing Economy Human Interface Protocol" (ITBSEHIP)

    #5 I'd like to do away with the inhuman ATS too. Perhaps that MS-LI system you thought up will do it?! Seriously, getting your "value statement" in front of the hiring manager is the end game, right?

    #1 I think what you've always been told is bad advice! Every person has a value proposition; the question is for which employer? When a candidate is authentic, he or she may not have as many opportunities, but the ones that match the value proposition are the right ones to target.
    Pamela 🐝 Williams
    13/01/2017 #3 Pamela 🐝 Williams
    Two statements jump out at me Lynda:

    1. "This means that you cannot and should not tailor your resume to fit a specific job opening, but instead that you be very clear about what your value proposition is" I've been told this so much it's frustrating. Plus there is this little caveat: The Internet. If you have your resume out there anywhere; BAM, you're busted! My diversity is usually my selling point. Some employers want someone who will think outside the industry box.

    "we exhorted employers to look beyond credentials and instead focus on what a candidate had actually accomplished."
    Not only credentials but THINK about how one skill would be so easily transferable and add real value to the job, but also what isn't what they want. This is one reason I think Key Words are the worse thing to ever to hit the search process. Not only when they are missing but when they are misinterpreted. Example: I'm not a Qlikview developer, no where on my resume does it say I developed software or an application; just that I took a developer course so I could Project Manage an application development. I get dozens of "job opportunities" a week for recruiters looking for a Qlikview developer. They are few and far between and I ain't one of them :o)

    Thanks for sharing, @David B. Grinberg and @John White, MBA. If you hadn't, I would've. This is spot-on advice from real-world experience.

    I love HireArt's method! I tell candidates to go into an interview and DO THE JOB.
    (It may be a bit easier when your title is Business Analyst so I'm inclined to start asking about requirements and giving solutions for, ahem, the job! ;)

    Do it as soon as you can - in a letter, résumé or interview. That's where networking, word of mouth and personal brand come in too.

    This can show your value, skill and interest/enthusiasm. If it's not a job you'd want you won't have much passion for it. Believe me, that comes across. I trained young guys out of college and you can tell they'd rather be anywhere else. Do that in an interview, and you're out!

    Randomly tailoring your résumé for each job waters down your value and will not pass the ATS, as it is looking for consistent keywords.
    Thanks for sharing that hard lesson, @Lynda Spiegel! Again, GREAT post.

    Fantastic article Susan Rooks...I think the most important thing to remember for anyone bold enough to step out on that social media limb and publish an article about their own personal and professional insights is to remain "willing" to have a conversation...That means a willingness to be disagreed with and still have a respectful exchange with an even temperament...Even with the ones we refer to as "trolls." Personally, I think handling a situation with an internet troll in a respectful manor should be a prerequisite for any job;-)

    "As we discussed, I was able to meet a similar challenge" This is the exact concise point of the follow-up - to write down and trigger in the hiring managers mind why you are the best candidate. The closer you can do this to the timeframe they might have mentioned for making their decision, the better. You want your top qualities fresh on their mind as they sit down to make a very complex decision.

    Two things are required from Gary ;First,he has to show the synergy that might exist between his personal and career objectives and the new employer's objectives.Second,he should show the hiring manager why he considers the new role the next logical step in his career advancement?and how he is going to add value to their business.Today,the hiring managers are more interested in the candidates future "core interests" rather than past "core skills".They are interested in people and tasks and in how the candidate will be able to handle them in different situations.The ability of the candidate to differentiate people and tasks and show a balance in meeting both will to a great extent determines his work style and prove his value.

    Glad you were able to help Gary. The "before" statements cry out "Where's the beef?"

    I always suggest using the problem - action - result elements for all descriptions of work history - -- and use them for interview responses!
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    22/12/2016 #1 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    The interesting paradox is that this willingness to describe the company, and how the person fit within the overall business, demonstrates how great a team player Gary is, but learning about the company is simply extraneous to a well-crafted resume that has to get the most important points about the person across in a very succinct fashion.

    But when someone edits this type of detail out of their resume, they should paste it into their interview preparation document, as contextualizing what they did, how mission critical their work was, is an important point to discuss during an interview.

    This was such a clear story, @Lynda Spiegel, that should help a lot of people see the change of perspective necessary to navigate the two different sections of the job search process with more efficiency and success.

    Thank you so much for the mentions! It means a great deal to me.

    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."

    ...be certain that your resume represents who you are and what you do.
    ...When reviewing potential positions to apply for, find openings for which your value proposition will resonate with the employer.
    In other words, let your resume showcase your authentic self."

    #42 Hi @Charles David Upchurch. Thank you so much for clarifying. Sorry for misunderstanding your intentions. In #39 I was trying to show I had done my due diligence. I can see how the link might not be noticed.

    The issue we posters have is that when you see the blurb of a post on a wall, you only see the first ~250 characters. Those are precious up-front words to capture the reader's attention and let them know what your article is about. If you start by giving a long link to any post, the summary message may be lost. As it stands, I have updated the post to list and link to Steve's post up front:

    'Steve Blakeman wrote a great post, "Burn your résumé... LinkedIn has made it obsolete", and made a compelling case for companies dropping traditional resumes - burning them, in fact - for online profiles instead. I wish it were that easy!

    The problem i...'

    ... and I added Steve's link again with the end photo credit.

    I may have now lost my main problem statement, but maybe it is clearer this way. Hopefully I am doing better. :) It's a balance.

    All the Buzz...

    #39 @Charles David Upchurch I t may help to read them in an environment/state of mind that is relatively distraction free, that way you can comment in a coherent manner that is germane to the content. This maintains the dynamic of a discussion much more effectively than continually apologizing for commenting in the wrong forum, etc.

    1) I had no idea that there was a link under the main photo. I only tried it after your comment #39.
    2) You stated "Steve Blakeman wrote a great post"... of course you did. I did NOT suggest that you were trying to take "credit or anything from Steve Blakeman."
    That wasn't my point at all. I was just hoping that you would add a link to the article that you had already properly mentioned.
    3) I did not see the link "(See https://www.bebee.com/producer/@steve-blakeman/burn-your-resume-linkedin-has-made-it-obsolete for Steve's original post.)" when I first read the article. If it was there, I apologize for missing it.

    I'm not trying to make anyone look bad. I just made the mistake of making a suggestion publicly which I should have either not made at all, or I should have made it privately. Instead of being helpful, I appear to have angered you, and for that I am also sorry.

    #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.
    Lynda Spiegel

    #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.

    Hey @Lynda Spiegel, being searchable while keeping your head down is best when "search equity" is the name of the game. I had someone say to me they are unlikely to work anymore because of her disability. I told her to keep their profile active as you can support others in their employment efforts, causes, and projects. Three years later she thanked me because she was able to lend support and find ideas to create opportunities shaped around her life.

    @Lynda Spiegel: Spot-On! And it works 'backwards' too: The Medical Field is wrought with tiers of extreme, intense national competition for 1 -2 spots in the best programs! I've helped pre-med students write their Personal Letters to get into medical school, internship, residency, Fellowship, and then get their first actual 'job,' after 15 years of education. I wrote my Letters of Recommendation specifically to be Un-Like the rest, succeeding in my candidate's obtaining the position, ranking as the best (Of course, I was selective and did not write a letter unless I thought the candidate was superb)! In the medical field there are suicides for failures to get an Interview, so one treads very seriously from Day #1 even as a pre-med student. Sad, but true.
