Isaac Morehouse is one of my favorite higher ed disrupters and he’s here today to discuss the pri…
In a previous appearance, Isaac told us "degrees are dead." He’s back with an update about another once-prized piece of paper quickly diminishing in value.
But is resume-burning safe?! Listen to this episode to learn if this is good advice for you. Other options include throwing it away, or simply no longer sending it to people.
The point is that for many industries and vocations, the résumé is an outdated mode of opening the right doors when launching or re-launching a career.
– a Venn diagram for career planning
– how obedience, conformity, and apathy (school’s three hidden lessons)
show up in young people continuing their education and in the job market
– empowerment and self-assertiveness: breaking out of a permission mentality
– how to target companies and provide them value upfront, and examples what this looks like
Isaac Morehouse is the CEO of Crash, the career launch platform, and the founder of Praxis, a startup apprenticeship program.
Isaac’s book, Crash Your Career: Ditch the Gatekeepers and Be Your Own Credential, provides a step-by-step process for how to do this. In it he writes:
"…degrees are dead, whether or not most people know it yet. The internet killed them. But it didn’t kill them by putting lectures and courses online — remember, people don’t pay tuition for the lectures and courses. The internet killed degrees because it brought the cost of information so low that now anyone anywhere can build a better signal than a degree through a digital footprint, brand, or body of work.You can now be your own credential. You can make something better than a third-party paper."
