Going Beyond Resumes

Hiring Based on Skills & the Capacity to Learn

“Experience has almost no predictive value in the vast majority of work roles,” said Adam Grant, noted Wharton professor, author, and host of the conference. 

“Instead of showing me your resume, show me the work you’ve done, things you’ve built. It’s the portfolio model,” said Chike Aguh, chief innovation officer at the U.S. Department of Labor. “If you’re not hiring based on skills and the capacity to learn, you are missing out on talent.” 

I truly believe the future will be more about what you’re questioning and wanting to know than what answers you already know. Questions will be like quests that attract and align us towards larger societal goals.
