Will the Resume Become A Relic Of the Past?

Will we tell our grandchildren about something called a "resume"?

Will we point to a faded CV at a museum someday and say, "I used to have one of those!" while our grandchildren look bored out of their minds and go back to texting their friends?

Quite possibly, yes.

More than 500 HR managers responded to a new OfficeTeam survey about the future of the resume, and one-third (36%) said it's "at least somewhat likely" that online social profiles will replace paper resumes.

A full 21% of HR managers, however, said it's "not at all likely" the resume will go the way of the dodo, while 42% said that it's "not very likely." These HR managers will have to be dragged kicking and screaming across that bridge to the 21st Century. The National Museum of American History may want to hold off on its resume collection, at least for a little awhile.
