Your Digital Profile
I was tickled when I read the small yellow box on BusinessWeek: Your Digital Profile. It starts with: "Paper resumes are passé." Interested in a June 17 NPR segment about digital profiles? Consider these things: "LinkedIn profiles are a must, blogs a plus... no cutesy, joint husband-and-wife e-mail addresses, please... at least one executive looks down on AOL addresses... AOL was so 1998..."
I remember having an AOL e-mail address. I think I still have one (but I never use it, so maybe it's gone by now).
BusinessWeek needs to start using URL-shortening services like bit.ly or even tiny URL! I had to type "http://bx.businessweek.com/recession-job-search/reference" to get to the BusinessExchange discussion on this topic.
