Resumes Can Actually Work Against Both You and the Employer
Resumes force job seekers to falsely shape their work and life history into corporately acceptable versions of their actual selves, to better conform to the employer’s expectation of the ideal candidate.
This results in an employer hiring a candidate that may be not qualified.
To get it right, some companies and startups are experimenting with new tools to determine a candidate’s actual fit with their company.
Various assessments are being invented to identify the skills employers are looking for, and report them in easy to understand formats. As technology improves, software that matches candidates with jobs is becoming more sophisticated.
