Ever felt a resume or application never told your story… ya us too.
The most successful companies in the world already recognize this and don’t rely on those metrics, “Laszlo Bock, senior vice president for people operations at Google, says some data is essentially worthless in assessing job candidates: G.P.A.’s. for instance, except for recent college graduates, and test scores.”.

So none of this is new, it’s always smart practices that get lost in the haze of the everyday. Here is a great article that outlines the difference between a resume & a CV, and we immediately understand that having to showcase a body of work has always been the best way to evaluate folks for ANY reason.

We look froward to this continued movement to go beyond grades and test scores & do our small part at ChromaUp.
