We’ve all seen those resumes, the ones that have more plot twists than a New York Times bestseller. And while it's tempting to pass them over in favor of a more predictable option, there’s something to be said for a candidate with the confidence to take the road less traveled.
That’s just the kind of person we’re featuring in our latest profile. Lance Baird is an MBA grad and marketing professional turned principal in his own company whose career has consisted of some major leaps of faith.

“Sorry, it’s just not going to work out. Good luck with your life.”
Breaking up via text isn’t anything new, but it still makes us cringe at a personal level because it feels incredibly impersonal. It’s almost paradoxical, because the texting medium itself represents a connection we have with people we know and trust.
Text messaging has become a powerful piece of communication in our everyday lives. While we all know that person that has steadily refused to participate in the SMS frenzy, research shows that it’s grown to be a core part of how we interact with others. Other than making a call or taking a photo, sending text messages is at the top of the list in terms of how people use their mobile devices.
This is especially pertinent for recruiters who are on the front lines of communication for their organizations. It’s innately personal and incredibly direct--how else can you cut straight through the noise and get a person’s attention right away? Plus, it’s becoming an increasingly acceptable communication tool for work. It makes sense that recruiters will want to leverage this ubiquitous form of communication for reaching and engaging with candidates.
Say a resume comes across your desk and the candidate’s career path seems so erratic you think their career GPS must have failed them at some point. Do you cast it aside in favor of a someone with a more predictable trajectory? Not so fast.
