What Technology is Doing to the Paper Resume

The art of writing a resume is one that has been practiced for years and years as a tool to help job seekers define their skills and experience.  Over time the traditional and recognized way of formatting and writing a resume has changed minimally, or has it?  It use to be that you would print our resume and hand deliver it to the employer, then came fax and email, and now we have the concept of online job boards.  Over time will the printed resume even be necessary?  Has the content on the…
