So as I was reading this week's edition of Time magazine, I stumbled across a one-page article that really caught my attention ("It's a Wrap. You're Hired!). After learning all of these news digital techniques, I've been thinking about how to apply these skills to my resume in order to find a high-paying job after graduation.
Well, this article gave me an interesting idea. It's premise, was creating resume videos. Although this particular articles focused on posting them on YouTube, I thought about how affective this concept could be in other forms, such as e-mail attachments, DVDs and on personal Web sites.
In some ways this reminds me of auditioning for a TV game or reality show, but isn't that what applying for a job is any, an extensive audition? And why not do it while showcasing some of your personal talents with technology? Maybe this is is the wave of the future with the easy availability of online and computer-based sound and video editing. Then again, maybe some employers just aren't ready for a generation of digital natives and still prefer the typical paper resume.
