And framing one’s job experience around their digital know-how can open them up to a much wider range of opportunities. “If you write ‘digital’ on your resume, your odds of getting a job are much higher than not having that word on your resume,” said Brian Kropp, the human resources practice leader at advisory firm CEB.
