For the last little while almost every Tech specialist from Brisbane to the Gold Coast has been asking me where they can get their resumes “professionally” drawn up – for a good price.
Besides this it seems to be a common theme that “super star” web developers don’t need a resume, because resumes are a thing of the past.. well maybe soon, but not just quite yet. Most large corporate companies still require both myself and my peers within the industry to supply them with a resume before they will even entertain the idea of a first round interview. WHY do they STILL want your resume..? Not quiet sure really, feel free to comment below if you have any ideas. however yes, it is a little old school – and as we all know most of Brisbane still is “old school” in a lot of it way’s concerning Tech, which is good – it’s why lots of us are here I guess.
If you think about it, resumes are important for one of two reasons the first, is to provide the potential employer a read out of your past experience in the particular field against that job you are applying for. Secondly, it allows potential employers to view your time durations in your previous jobs.
