It was just a matter of time. If anything in HR should be “non-fungible,” it’s the resume. Employers want to know that they are in receipt of the original resume of a candidate with information validated by the source and protected by the blockchain. And they’re willing to pay for it for qualified candidates.
Earlier this week, the Internet exploded after one of the Big Tech shops was reported to pay $562K for the resume of a data scientist with more than a decade of experience.
And, investors are lining up. In 2021 Q1 VC pumped more than $420 million into these NFT resume startups. This may be the trend that brings HR to the blockchain.
