Writing a resume during the application process may be a relic of the past, according to Rachel Silverman’s article “No More Résumés, Say Some Firms” in the Wall Street Journal.  Silverman details the different approaches some companies are taking to find the right employee, the one perfect for the job and whom fits perfectly into their corporate culture.  Companies at times go as far as having applicants submit brief videos as part of their application, citing that it gives them a better chance to see the real applicant.  While personally I haven’t experience a Recruiting 2.0 application process yet, I would welcome the challenge and appreciate the ability to showcase talents and soft skills which may be lost on paper.
