He only responds to resumes that are worth commenting on because he wants others to brush up on their skills in making a resume. Other netizens have been reposting resumes to help young people land a good job.

Huang says he believes the microresume's disadvantage is that it is so scattered. So each one needs to draw attention immediately, the same as a traditional resume.

"The response time on microresumes is fast and for those that I've reposted, there are interview opportunities," he says, noting that, in addition, human resource personnel often read the person's micro blog, which reflects their personality. So, it's a good idea to open an exclusive account to update the resumes, career ideas, and job feelings. This account could be the best resume.

However, there's still a long way to go before the microresume goes mainstream. According to Zhang, if a company has to search for resumes on micro blogs, it's often for the following reasons: they're looking for a talent that's popular but difficult to track; they have few applicants because they're not famous; or the need isn't that urgent.

Meanwhile, Zhou is also looking for jobs the old-fashioned way, so she can apply to a company where she'd really like to work and because the odds are higher.

Huang concludes that, "It's better to have a micro blog platform for hiring so that it's convenient to search for jobs and talented people."
