    My favorite parts, Lynda:

    "Focus on what fits. Don't tailor yourself to fit jobs.
    ...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."

    Oh so true. I say this from experience. I tailored and was "just looking for a job". No success. Surprise!? Nope.
    Follow this great advice instead.

    #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.

    #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.

    #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.

I have done serious, whimsicle, content story-based drivel and even a twerk karaoke fest.

    História
    Frase
    A luz de bons preceitos humanos, refletirá um estado de equilíbrio harmônico com tudo que vemos e com o que não vemos .Apenas sentimos.
    Apresentação
    Mediante o caos da existência humana ,ao relento entregue á própria sorte ,criou-se sem pai, sem mãe .Favelas ,pontes ,ruas ,porões ,casinos ,prostíbulos ,no cabo da enxada ,vi do lixo ao luxo e quão á vida nos é uma escola ,para o bem ou para o mal .Graças á minha obstinação ,perseverei e trabalhei muito ,estudei e me formei ,conquistei meu teto ,casei-me, tenho dois filhos formados ,seguindo suas vidas com toda dignidade.
    Motivos de orgulho
    Ultrapassei as barreiras de minha vida ,chegando á vitoria ,conquistando o grande premio ,sabe qual ? Vou dizer-lhes á dignidade humana ,para min e para linda família que constitui .Obrigado ó divino criador de que tudo vê e tudo pode.

    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.

    #3 Hi, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian. Employment gaps are huge (often unfairly so) issues for employers. There's no hiding it - I refer to it as Family Leave, because it IS, but then I encourage candidates to create some work (even if nobody paid for it; no one will ask) that they can use to populate their resume. Perhaps she'll gain further insight from this article I wrote last year in the Wall Street Journal; http://blogs.wsj.com/experts/2015/10/02/how-women-should-explain-gaps-in-their-resumes/

    #3 @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, definitely recommend @Lynda Spiegel to your friend with a caretaker gap. She has some fabulous articles over on you know where, and she can really help get her bring the vast life and organizational skills one acquires during caretaking to the resume front. If she needs some help with interview motivation, send her my way, I'd be glad to share my ebook and have a chat.

    I read this and it sparked my interest even though I haven't written a resumé since 1998. If I did, I sure as hell wouldn't mention that I mopped floors at McDonalds when I was 16!

    ​I have a question for you from someone I know who is looking... How do you deal with a big hole? This lady spent 5 years taking care of her ailing mother who has passed on. Potential employers seem stressed over it.

    Thank you, @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD! I'm astounded by people who want their resumes or way prior to that, their letters of recommendation to be like other candidates. Isn't the whole point to differentiate oneself?
    Clearly, anyone who got help from you on their personal statements was fortunate, indeed!

    @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. Thank you for showing that many times, "Less is More." 🐝We can see that on beBee, where Profiles of many superior and experienced professionals were configured in less than 3 min.🐝

    #1 So true, @Mohammed A. Jawad! And @Brian Brandt, this Article is amazingly befitting to match with your own resumé, indeed! Being new to beBee, it's common for others to just not 'see' your Articles, so encouraging you to share to beBee in English to gather your broadest audience. ;-). I'll do so now, and wish you good cheer! (~if it helps, I have lots of hints and articles for new bees: Dr Margaret Aranda: For My NewBeeZ - white flower pic)

    Indeed, to remain positive all times is a great trait, and it builds up confidence to tap more opportunities and face hurdles boldly. Trials are only temporal, but efficient efforts will result in sweet surprises.
