Another way in which technology has changed the job market is that candidates can pitch themselves in new and innovative ways.
Michael Gilmore of Resume Talent says a graphical resume can grab a prospective employer’s attention aesthetically, but also save them time by very clearly demonstrating skills and experience.
“If you are in a visual or presentation focus field it's nice to present something a little more than Times New Roman,” Duffy says.
A personal website with all the usual resume information functions as a resume in two ways, as Duffy says for those working in an online medium, it gives hirers a frame of reference for the candidate’s abilities.
If you are considering a video, however, you might want to slow down. “I’m not watching anyone’s YouTube channel – unless they are in a band or something cool like that,” Duffy says.
So, unless you can get Adele to introduce your abilities on video, creating a YouTube channel as a resume might be a waste of your time.
