I recently attended a graduate recruitment event to talk to students about coming to work with us at KMP. A lot of them offered to send me their CVs, some offered to send their pdf portfolios.

I told each of them that I wouldn't read them. I'm more interested in personality and your work - online. Sure, some background is important but generally I want to be sent URLs, Github accounts, your @ name etc; you get the picture.

Maybe I'm in the minority here, but it seems to me that schools, colleges and universities need to wise up and move with the times both in terms of course content, gaining employment and more. Creating closer links between industry and education has to be the way to go. It's time to talk.
