Could Press-Release and White-Paper Resumes Be on the Horizon?


The white paper Findings of 2010 Global Career Brainstorming Day: Trends for the Now, the New & the Next in Careers notes that “some of the newest [career-marketing] documents … hitting the market are white papers and press-release resumes.” An explanation:
White papers establish a job-seeker’s expertise and credibility around a specific topic, product, technology, or the like. Press-release resumes are just that … resumes written in a press-release format. Resume writers are already using these documents, so we anticipate they will increase in greater popularity over the next year.
The brainstorming day was held in December 2010 by the Career Thought Leaders Consortium, publishers of the white paper.
