Today’s job market is dramatically different than it was just a short time ago. We’re now living in a gig economy where one- to five-year stints are the norm and people need to plan their careers around a market that’s becoming more focused on skills rather than employment. Soon, the gig economy will employee more freelancers than traditional workers. In fact, 1 in 3 U.S. workers have already taken on some form of gig work. But, if you’re just getting started, there’s a lot you need to know.
2020 is in full swing. It’s a new year, a new decade. Yet even with all of humanities progress in technology and communication, you might be surprised to find that your resume remains as important as ever. It may take new forms, but it continues to open doors and sell your skills. It sums up your qualifications for a recruiter or hiring manager, and it’s the document they use to decide whether or not you might be a fit for your dream job. So what should your 2020 resume look like?

1. You must be qualified for the job (meet at least 50% of the requirements).
2. You must have a solid online reputation that an employer can easily find via Google.
View your job search as a sales job — you are “selling” your work as an employee, and the employer is “buying” your work based on your “features” (skills, knowledge, experience, and accomplishments).
