Article suggests the role of the resume has changed

HR.com™, the largest research and Web destination for Senior HR Professionals, recently published an article on its site entitled, "Should we do away with resumes?" The article was written by Joe Murphy, who is a principal and co-founder of Shaker Consulting Group.

Joe takes a look at a couple of examples that show how resumes have made life difficult, because one opening can attract 1,200 resumes with only about 15% possessing the minimum qualifications. The alternative, he suggests, is taking a multi-method approach, which uses a combination of scorable screening and simulated job tryouts to create an objective path for candidate flow and decision support.

He also points out that the strength of the Web and computing power are still grossly underutilized: merely migrating a paper form to digital completion is not taking advantage of the power offered by the medium.

He further states, "As we consider the evolution of the recruiting process, the resume has not evolved, it has not kept pace." He says that, "Simulations, virtual job tryouts and work sampling are the wave of the future, and are being used on a limited basis today."
