The 140-Character Resume

This concept was talked about in a Business Week article in May 2008 and again here in Pocket Change. In a recent post on getting back to basics, I suggested the crazy notion of writing your resume in 140 characters (characters, not words). That’s the maximum Tweet allowed on Twitter. What? Forget that for now. What’s important is that forced brevity sharpens the mind and quickens the soul.

I just started a hashtag on twitter to deposit your 140-char resume #140resume. Should we do a contest?
