Google Earth Resume? Meh…

I was just reading in Google Earth Blog about some who put their Resume/CV in KML. KML isn’t exactly rocket science and to me it hearkens back to all those “HTML” resumes that people sent out in the late 90’s. Plus it isn’t like people in the corporate world can actually read it legally unless they purchase Google Earth Pro (though I guess you could always view in Google Maps). Just because something can be done, doesn’t make it a great idea. If someone attaches a KML to a email asking for a job I can tell you my company won’t accept it and many others won’t either. Your resume should be in PDF or better yet sent snail mail (I’m sure most companies are like mine in this regard).
