With the Experience Graph, professionals will be able to show that researching/writing that white paper on how public nuisance law is adding X number of dollars to the production of each U.S. automobile:
a) Equipped them to be on a public affairs team lobbying against aspects of public nuisance law in California and b) Resulted in the modifications of the law wanted by the firm's client.
Soon enough, predicts Garry Golden at TechCrunch, the Experience Graph will replace the traditional resume. That kind of graph, explains Golden, will illustrate job candidates'
" ... progression of lifelong learning and training and its links to their real-world performance ... The graph itself will grow out of ExperienceAPI (xAPI), a data specification that allows us to capture and record all types of learning and connecting with Twitter influencers to earning certifications - and present them as an experience graph."
It's probable that those deciding who gets promoted in a business or non-profit eventually will request such an Experience Graph from all candidates. Since it will capture everything and connect the dots, the selection process can become more efficient. And more objective.
Until the Experience Graph is standard, you can retrofit your own resume to show those links. Just make it explicit how X generated Y and Y generated Z. You'll also do that in your cover letters and on interviews.
Connecting the dots not only makes reviewing you easier for employers. In addition, it indicates that you can discern what experiences were most useful in your career and in what specific ways.
