Pocket Resumes: Who Would Have Thought?

Pocket Resumes: Who Would Have Thought?

I was checking out the alumni Linkedin group for a former employer of mine and read someone commenting on pocket resumes.  “Pocket resume?” I asked myself.  “What an interesting concept?”

What is it?  It’s a resume the size of a business card that’ll fit in your shirt or pant pocket.  It’s ideal for  networking events.   I’m going to research these pocket resumes a bit and get back to you.

I hope to shed light on what I think can be an ideal tool for job hunters wanting to get their message across.  The restrictions on space require you keep your message clear and concise.  You gotta do something to stand out and this pocket resume with a different sort of thinking, or better yet mentality, just might be the pony trick to get you noticed and remembered.

(Editor’s Note:  I have followed this article up with another post called “Pocket Resume Mentality for a Better Resume.”  Check it out for more information on the topic.
