RIP Resume

Seth writes that resumes are obsolete. I agree.
Sure, most jobs require a resume to be even considered by HR.

But, that's because we tend to think resumes are the only way to communicate between prospective employers and employees. In reality, resumes are fairly useless, they have become a ticket stub: The real action is happening afterwards.

Seth mentions blogs and references. Instead, why not create one blog with one post just dedicated for your job search? Make it entertaining, engaging, put your heart into it. One such blog post will get prospective employers to call you very quickly. And very often.
