It was not that long ago that a finely tuned resume was the best way for a candidate to get the interview they wanted. When the Internet came along, it was treated as an enhancement to the traditional process. As Internet technology developed, recruiters started to see the value in being able to sift through digital resumes instead of having to manually read hundreds of paper resumes. The evolution of the Internet is creating changes that recruiters must keep up with if they want to find the candidates that will bring them success.
Digital Is The New Paper
It appears that the days of digital resumes being used to enhance paper resumes are at an end. According to Business News Daily, professional recruiters have indicated that the resume acceptance process is completely digital now. LinkedIn has played a large part in the transition because of its comprehensive networking format that plays so easily into a job recruiting process.
