Why the Resume is Outdated

13903383190_5920c870e1

Terence Tse, Mark Esposito, and Olaf Groth of the Harvard Business Review write, “While we are surrounded by a wave of new disruptive technologies and apps, HR still hasn’t improved how it evaluates the prospective workforce. Traditional hiring processes that revolve around CVs are no longer sufficient – they don’t pinpoint the right qualities demanded of leaders today, and their dated criteria obscures many talented individuals from even hitting the radar. There is nothing inherently wrong with resumes – they highlight applicants’ past achievements and experience. But while CVs are good at showcasing formal skills, they’re not very useful for identifying values and behavior.” Read more

Paul Mathai of Manufacturing.net recently wrote, “Over the last few years, augmented reality (AR) technology and its application have been progressing in leaps and bounds. A couple of years ago, the AR application patterns were broadly along the lines of: A pop-up virtual object on a 2D marker… What’s inside the box… A virtual fitting room…” etc. Mathai goes on, “The first wave was mostly exploratory in nature, and looking back, quite simple compared to the current applications trends. The early adoption was oriented towards wowing the customers in product marketing or familiarizing consumers on the product features or user training in field services… Technologically, AR evolved from simple 2D-marker-based, to geo-tagged and then to natural-marker-based platforms. And from the device perspective, it has evolved from mobile handhelds to eye-wearables like the Google Glass.” Read more
