PALO ALTO, CA - Recently, Seth Godin (of whom I have been a big fan for years, and whose Boxed Set I bought the week it was released) suggested that the best jobs don't require a resume. Seth knew his comments were going to be controversial, and his post was music to the ears of his fans -- many of whom blogged their hope that he was right.
As a follow up to that conversation, a buddy of mine has been approached by Google for a great job ... a world class job ... a job people would kill for ... one of those jobs that don't get filled by people emailing in resumes. Ever.
And guess what? The first thing Google's internal recruiter sent my friend was this link explaining how to prepare a resume for Google. It's a requirement. Who knew?
Now, I'm not trying to say "I told you so" with this post. But we all know that Google is one of America's Top Employers. Evidently, a resume is as important to getting a job with Google as having a license is to driving a car. It's like that everywhere.
