Sign of the economic times

OK, so here’s something that I’ve noticed over the past two weeks. When I try to access LinkedIn in the evenings, I’ve been met head on with extremely long load times. That is even if I ever get a page on their site to reload.

Yeah, I’m willing to bet that everyone in the Pacific time zone is spending time after work burnishing their resume.

Heck, I just came across this list of 6 things that you shouldn’t do in a resume today. While I can see the points being made in this post, I have to say that I don’t necessarily agree wholeheartedly. There are word recognition software algorithms that are run on resumes, and while it might read as a more unique and special resume if you make the requested changes, you might miss out being picked up by the HR department’s resume scanner… Not a risk that I’m willing to take in these times.
