LinkedIn has just made a brilliant move and created the LinkedIn Resume Assistant. This smart integration was well worth the billions of pounds Microsoft spent to acquire LinkedIn. LinkedIn data is now directly integrated into Microsoft Word to help users write better resumes. Facebook is also testing a "work histories" feature that can be shared on a profile with limited access to your phones, etc. What this means is Facebook is entering the job hunting race, and we may soon see the 87% of recruiters checking LinkedIn to vet candidates and...GLEAC?

Here's why GLEAC is a step ahead, and why everyone needs to pay attention:

  1. Both LinkedIn and Facebook are merely tinkering with the design and integration of the same old information we compile on resumes.
  2. GLEAC is instead interrupting the type of information you would traditionally put on your resume.
  3. GLEAC's focus in on developing and measuring growth mindsets.
We are entering a period in our history where for the first time, soft skills such as judgment and decision making, creativity, communication skills, etc. will leapfrog ahead hard skills.While LinkedIn and Facebook are fundamentally providing templates and ease of creating the traditional resumes as we know them, i.e., same content.Personally, our bias is towards GLEAC…..we wonder why;-)
