Resumes or “About Me Page”?
Exactly what is an “About Me Page”? Like many of us, I grew up writing a cv or resume when looking for a job. Over the years, I have written many resumes for job seekers. There was a set pattern expected; and as a recruiter, I knew where to look for the information I needed. There were also the “power words” that were always what you expected to see in a resume.
New changes in how we find jobs today.
Of course, we all understand the power of social media in how things are done today. Networking is still king, it is just done in different ways. You can still go to the local Chamber of Commerce meetings and attend local meet-ups of career-minded people, but the internet has taken over so much of our connections, most of us are using zoom, text, one-page websites, and other internet services to find our next career. Services like Linkedin have proven extremely valuable in looking for a job.
