Be careful you don't throw out the baby with the bath water!

It's easy to look at only one side of the issue. True, resumes need to
better, however, recruiters and hiring managers need to assess their
better. What you see on a so-called well written resume is not always
what you
will get.

This is the age of the mobile, connected candidate, with all the tools
instant communications. Some of your best people have just as much a
need to
assess you as you have to assess them. In today's environment you must
keep it
simple and use your mobile, connected, communications tools to fill in
blanks. Anything worth having is worth building on. Don't expect
quantity to
replace quality. I could say more but, let's build on this for now.
