More than resume bullets

Life is not a resume and obviously can’t be one that is accepted by hiring managers. It is as if we wrap our lives into lines on a resume. There is something called living as well. In all the conversation regarding re-skilling, automation, big or small data, deep learning and smart cities we tend to forget that each journey is unique, have differential set of opportunities influenced by social, economic and cultural capital and habitus.

Life is fuller than reduced caricatures which are essentially lists. We are brands, varnished by LinkedIn, perennial image building is the fuel, but I guess organisations are better off hiring full humans than plastic cvs.
