Where is the resume field headed? Get some insights on "Trends in Resumes & Career Marketing Communications" from Career Thought Leaders Deb Dib and Louise Kursmark.

But the need to assist job seekers with clarifying their job search goals and strategies and developing messaging content to fulfill that role will continue to be needed, both now and well into the future.
But even with changes in technology, the job search is still fundamentally about people. Connecting with the people with the authority to hire you. (There's a resurgent interest in networking -- both with and without social media -- which is interesting, because it's always been about connecting with other people.)
