I found a very interesting link to Seth Godin. I don't know much about him but he advocates that one doesn't need to write a resume / CV and offers interesting alternatives.
To quote him:
If you don't have a resume, what do you have?How about three extraordinary letters of recommendation from people the employer knows or respects?
Or a sophisticated project they can see or touch?
Or a reputation that precedes you?
Or a blog that is so compelling and insightful that they have no choice but to follow up
Hope you enjoy looking at his blog. I found his ideas very fascinating.
