Tips to Consider when Sending your Resume to Recruiters
- Companies that offer resume distribution services vary in the scope of their recruiter database, and their methods for distribution. In general, look for resume services that can email your resume to a large network of employers and recruiters, and offer the recruiters targeted distribution.
- Although resume distribution is the “quantity” part of your job search, it still pays to make sure you find a quality service to email resumes for you, and that the company has a high level of customer service and support.
- Examine the type of jobs that you are interested in for the types of keywords that they use. Make sure that your resume contains these keywords and phrases, as your resume will be often judged by computers, versus humans!
- Understand the nature of any recurring services – some resume distribution services offer a one time blast; others offer multiple emails or some other type of recurring product. Make sure you understand what you are buying.
