Punk Rock HR Question 25: Do I Need A Resume?


Dear Punk Rock HR:

What do you think about this?

Love, obviously a Cog in a Giant Machine


Dear Cog,

Seth Godin writes, “Great jobs, world class jobs, jobs people kill for… those jobs don’t get filled by people emailing in resumes. Ever.”

He is right…

…but you will never have a great, world class job. The best most of us can hope for is a pretty good job with good benefits and nice co-workers.

Those pretty good jobs — the jobs in accounting, finance, IT, human resources, procurement, customer service, marketing, sales, the advertising department, accounts payable, supply chain, R&D, etc. — are filled by regular people who have resumes.

It must be nice to be Seth Godin, though.
