Whether you realize or not, you create your resume every single day in the content you create that goes into the public domain. What, not creating content that can be discovered, commented on and shared? Let me know how that works out for you because I’m busy doing it nearly every day.
Voice and relevance
We live in a world of voice and relevance. You can have a loud voice but lack relevance, and you can be highly relevant but lack the voice to make it known. The new resume is the voice you earn from the relevance you demonstrate. It’s a bear market for people who just sit at a desk and do ‘things.’ As enterprises become leaner and more collaborative, the ideas shared become more value than knowledge and experience that resides in your head.
You need to share constantly.
Is it fear?
What keeps you from sharing? Fear that you won’t compare favorably with others that do? Everyone has that fear. What you may not realize is the very act of sharing ideas improves on your ability to share ideas. It is a virtuous cycle that not only creates your resume every day, it improves it each and every time.
We’re always looking for brave people willing to put their best thoughts out there. Let us know if you’d like to write guest pieces. Who knows…you could become a regular. Besides, it is actually healthy.
