The latest concept to bring resumes into the 21st century is to create a system of digital badges that can be placed on resumes and job search websites that allow workers to display their skills and accomplishments, visually. The concept is currently in the design phase as MacArthur Foundation (the organization sponsoring the concept) holds a competition between designers to create the prettiest badges for us all. Check out the latest article from the Wall Street Journal, and follow the design competition here.
We’ll continue to follow the story, keeping you posted on when it’s time to take the badge system a bit more seriously in your career. For now, keep on eating dem’ Girl Scout cookies.
