Do You Post Your Resume Online?

Having a great resume is only half the battle.  If the only thing you are doing with it is submitting it via job applications, you are going about the process in the wrong way.  To get the most out of it, you should post your resume online.  Most job boards give job seekers the option to do this, and you should take advantage of this feature immediately. 

In my experience, I have noticed a lot of job seekers ignore this feature.  The process is admittedly tedious, and it would seem very unlikely that your resume will even get seen.  Don't allow yourself to fall into this kind of thinking.  Many hiring manager do use resume searching services, as it allows them to search for resumes that contain specific keywords.  This make it even more likely it will be seen than if you sent it in via an application.

Another useful side-effect of the resume search engine is exposing you to positions you might not have considered.  Some of the best jobs are not always posted publicly, so getting your resume onto an online database is a good way to tap into this hidden job market.  Yes, it can be a bit of a hassle to do, but it's a tool worth using.  Remember, you need to take advantage of every job search tool at your disposal.
