The reason I wrote a prose-style, 7,000 word “resume” and the reason I insist on meeting people in person, versus applying for jobs blindly, is that I will never win head-to-head on paper. I will never be able to articulate my value to someone with a resume alone.
As validation, the above screenshot is from a job posting on LinkedIn. It’s for an entry level social media manager role. You’ll notice, that based on a scan of my experience, LinkedIn has determined that I wouldn’t even be in the top 50% of applicants to be considered for this job.
