Are you Naked without a Resume?

Well--yes you are. You've got to have a resume. And it has to be great. Applying for jobs without a resume is like walking out of the house in the morning to retrieve your newspaper without having put your robe on to cover up--well, whatever you sleep in.

But pay more attention to your social media profile, where you can really develop a sense of who you are, outside of the strait-jacket confinement of what a resume is supposed to look like.

Here's a great article with links to additional resources on how to craft a LinkedIn profile, interact with others in your chosen industry or field in forums or on Twitter, and offer samples of your work for a prospective employer who wants to know more (without lugging around a portfolio).
