Any career consultant will tell you that you need to include job boards in your job search toolbox. Recruiters use them to find their candidates. Ensure that your resume stands out:

  • Stick to the legitimate, well established sites: Indeed, LinkedIn, Monster, Zip Recruiter, and Career Builder are a few. There are also many industry specific job boards but beware of anyone that asked for personal information or payment.
  • Setup your search notification alerts. Setup several using a variety of possible job titles.
  • Take the time to modify your resume for each job listing that you respond to. Incorporate keywords and descriptive phrases from the job description.
  • Track your resume submittals. When you receive an inquiry from the recruiter, you will want to be able to quickly find the resume version and the date you responded.
