Why LinkedIn Should Kill the Résumé Already
by Garry Golden for TechCrunch
Imagine a future where individuals can illustrate their progression of lifelong learning and training and its links to their real-world performance. In this version of the future, the once-ubiquitous résumé has been ousted by the experience graph.
The graph itself will grow out of ExperienceAPI (xAPI), a data specification that allows us to capture and record all types of learning and performance experiences inside the workplace and beyond. Simply put, the software specification enables people to capture enriching “I did X” activity statements — from connecting with Twitter influencers to earning certifications — and present them as an experience graph.
