Resumes in their current form have grown staid.
The standard, one-page document listing out all your achievements is boring.
Now that is not to say that it does not have its benefits. The medium is easy for recruiters to quickly skim through hundreds of resumes at a time.
But what about when someone seeks you out? When someone lands on your personal page? Wants to hire you for a speaking gig or to freelance?
Do resumes have to be boring then?
I would argue no. Such interactions are the ideal way to convey your personality and experiences in a more personal setting.
Talking with every prospective person might be unfeasible.
But having a bot do all the heavy-lifting? Maybe not.
