The New Age Resumes n' Resignations :-)

People are re-inventing resume. That’s what I see happening on the web world. At least, a part of the world appears to have moved away from traditional curriculum vitae.
A New Age Resume can creatively harness the power of communication channels to get you the right job you love.
Before I talk about new age resumes, 
I believe, one must have a primordial Google Resume.
Google Resume : 
If you are not on Google you do not exist.
Yes, At least in the corporate world. So Google is your primordial resume.
Manage it with your presence on WWW.
Give more to W3  & Get Richer on Google.




Coming back to Resumes, I believe that a resume should answer the 5W-1H’s

A New Age Resume?
( Who,Where,When,Why,What and How)
It should represent
Who you are, 
Where you work , 
When you did What ,
Why you are the best, 
What you are good at, 
How you can bring in value. 
In essence, It should showcase your Knowledge, Skill and Will.
