The resume is evolving, but it’s not dead. While paper resumes are less ubiquitous, there’s an essential feature at the core of the resume that professionals still need. We needed resumes decades ago because they were a way to tell your professional story in a brief, succinct way. Today, there are more ways to tell your story through technology, but your resume - both paper and digital versions - is still important. Approach your resume as an important piece of your professional life. It works alongside your professional relationships, volunteer work, organization memberships, and more.
