Kill the Resume to Bring Back the Middle Class


Jacob Hsu


There was a time when meaningful employment didn't require a resume. Factory workers across America raised families based on skills. Adapt this mindset from blue collar to white collar work, and we open a world of possibilities to underserved job seekers and an entirely new talent pool. With the emergence of advanced analytics capabilities, companies can now use AI and big data to overhaul today's hiring models, increase diversity and create a new middle class for the knowledge economy.
