Creating Resumes that Get Found

How to get job opportunities that come to YOU.

Resume writing is always top of mind for jobseekers, and with good reason. Without a compelling, updated resume, your chances of landing the perfect job are almost nil. Last post detailed essential resume components, and key tips for resume writing. Now, it’s time to reap the rewards of writing that brilliant resume!

Step One  Create a Monster.com account, if you don’t already have one. 3 reasons you should: Monster is still a leading job recruitment site/service. Monster has many updated benefits for its members that are well worth the sign-up, and it has an excellent track record of maintaining its massive, searchable database.

Step Two  Upload your resume to your Monster account. *IMPORTANT* Your MS Word resume will loose much of its formatting after upload. Use the “editing tools” found under the Edit tab on Monster to get rid of any/all goobley-gook.
