What’s Your Real Job?
Looking at your résumé, aside from it's purpose to 'get you a job', would you say that it really shows who you are? Looking at mine (on LinkedIn), I am struck by how I appear in it. It says nothing about how I actually spent, nor spend, my days. It says little about ME, other than where I went to school (can't you see how smart I am?), where I've worked (yes, THEY hired me!) and what titles I was given (don't I sound impressive?). It's a very inaccurate picture of how I add value to the world. When I wrote it, I was hoping to do a good job of selling you on what I appear to be.
