Finding a job is not as easy as we would like it to be, what with the huge number of people looking to make a living, and the economy not doing as well as everyone would want it to. The competition is tough, to say the least, and every job seeker – new graduate and experienced alike – has to make sure he has an edge over other job seekers.
And when it comes to finding a job, there usually is no way around it – a resume is needed. But gone are the days when the traditional resume is enough to catch the attention of employers and head hunters. That is not to say that traditional resumes are not being used. They are.
There is, however, the fact that there are more resources which job seekers can utilize to catch the eye of potential employers. Enter the social resume.
