updated resume attracts more atention

Post by elvis44102 on Fri May 25, 2012 3:53 pm

just a little reminder as i am sure this has been posted before....

i am on several jobs websites (monster, indeed, dice, career builder, etc)...

every time i update my resume...even if its just changing the wording or the title, i get calls from recruiters....just appears as they go for the newest resumes.....since i just finished a small contract...i am now doing this and the calls will come in...they always do......sometimes this just seems pointless, but it does get attention.......yes it takes about an hour, and yes i have probably changed better wording for inferior wording....go figure...

Elvis, this a great post and so relevant. I hope everyone hears your message. Keep honing that resume and update the major job sites nightly.

Employers pay for access to sites like Careerbuilder and Dice. Then they pay extra to post jobs. So what's being done is they get requisitions to fill and they don't post the jobs... they search for candidates who fit the requirements.

It's not always obvious who is "available", so a search on profiles that have been updated within the last 24 hours or week is done - it's a good bet that these individuals are looking for work.

I know this because I'm currently helping a recruiting company search for some IT individuals - and use Dice and Careerbuilder from the employer side. More on that later.

Everyone, POST EVERY NIGHT! Even on the weekends. Jobs are coming about and recruiters are connecting even on the weekends. It's their bread & butter as well as yours!

And if you're contacted, ACT FAST! Reply to their email without delay and call them immediately afterwards.

Thanks Elvis!
