        Beyond the Resume (Beta edition!)

        Beyond the Resume (Beta edition!)

        The most valuable advice someone ever told me about resumes is that "resumes were invented to avoid having to read resumes."

        When you think about it, every piece of advice you've ever read about a "good" resume is all about it being short, to the point, and about how little time the person seeing the resume spends with it. Let's look at some of the common advice about resumes:

        * Your resume should be only one page.
        * Your resume should have bullet points.
        * Your resume's bullet points should include measurable numbers.
        * Your resume should be simple, unique designs are distracting.
        * Your resume should have your location/address displayed prominently on it.
        * Your resume should include "references available upon request" at the end

        Most of that advice should sound familiar, and you do generally need to maintain a resume for when it's requested in the job hunt. However, you do *not* want your resume to be the first point of contact a company sees from you.

        Your resume and cover letter shouldn't be what you rely on to get you into a conversation with a real human being. In fact, you can break the "hunting" process down into actionable sections: how to start looking, how to find a contact, how to start and win the interview process. So that you can move _beyond_ the resume.

        Over the years, I've had scores of requests for job hunting advice from students in technical courses, from friends, and even from current (and past) colleagues. In this book, I've put all my advice in one place to help more people learn how to get jobs in a smarter way rather than using a brute-force method of job hunting.
