Steve Jobs did not focus on resumes or titles. Rather, he focussed on the work tasks needed to fix Apple. This is what he told me when I recruited Tim Cook. This experience inspired me to create a new professional network where anyone can publish their tasks and skills as validated achievements to better connect and be discovered, like Tim.
