Top Tips for Getting your Resume Noticed Online

  • Write a compelling chronological resume. Highlight results you achieved in previous jobs.
  • Use high impact, relevant keywords to get noticed and be found. Employers & Recruiters use keywords to search the resume bank and their internal Applicant Tracking Systems (much like how you use Google). Think keywords!
  • Keep your resume updated.
  • Refresh your Resume often--the most recent resumes come up first in specific search results.
  • Post your Resume to target niche sites such as CareerWomen.com, DiversitySearch.com and MBACareers.com.
  • Apply to individual jobs you are interested in and qualified for. Don't only expect Employers/Recruiters to find you in a Resume Bank.
  • Write personalized cover letters highlighting why you are the Best candidate for the job. Focus on opportunities; tell the potential employer how you can make an impact.
  • Make sure you have a professional presence online starting with LinkedIn.
  • Check to make sure that all your social networking accounts are employer & recruiter ready. (They will look!)
