We Americans love our Olympic heroes, even though the 2016 Summer Olympics has come to a close. We’re still starry-eyed over our most recent world record holders, especially Simone Biles, Katie Ledecky and Michael Phelps. We’re fascinated with their natural talent, and most of us can barely comprehend (much less emulate) the relentless dedication and rigorous training regimens that brought them to Olympic victories .But, what if Olympic athletes had to submit a resume to enter the games? What if Michael Phelps could only make it to the podium if he first showed the world a one-page description of his credentials and asked us to review it, like billions of skeptical hiring managers? Instead of diving into the pool, regular job seekers must describe their talent to prospective employers using neatly organized blocks of text (i.e., your resume). If you think about it objectively, Olympic athletes have a huge advantage; the cameras capture their victories and viewers watch in real time. We, on the other hand, are forced to sell our past accomplishments and future potential using choice words on a piece of paper. Let’s turn the tables and have some fun.
