Getting Your Resume Noticed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Posting your resume to appropriate job boards is time consuming, complicated and frustrating.  Different job boards require data input in different ways and it's rarely as simple as cut & paste.  Additionally, there are several industry specific job boards that may be valuable to you that you are unaware of.  Because posting your resume manually takes from 20 to 45 minutes for each job board, it takes an entire day to post to just 8 web sites.  To succeed in your job search, it's important to manage your time and your energy productively.   

    The Interview Mastery team recently tested ResumeRabbit.com, the leading resume posting service.

    ResumeRabbit.com is a website where you post your resume once and then select up to 91 different job boards where you want your resume posted.  You can select both general and industry specific job sites.

    We used ResumeRabbit.com as if we were a real job seeker without a resume.   The website was easy to navigate and professional.  ResumeRabbit.com stated that their process takes about 15 minutes - and it did.  We chose a username / password and then followed the prompts for completing the information.

    First, we were asked to enter information like name, location, level of experience, etc., then skills, work experience and preferences. Before long, we had an up-to-date resume.  Most fields were simple point and click.  Clearly the developers of ResumeRabbit.com took the time to automate as much of this process as possible.

    After completing the information, we paid the small fee and confirmed our selections.  Within minutes we had confirmation of our application and received emails from several job boards confirming our posted resume.  ResumeRabbit.com also provided an online report any time detailing status of our resume posting on the multiple sites we selected.

    ResumeRabbit.com claimed our resume would be posted within 72 hours.  We saw results in about 70 minutes from most job boards. 

    A couple days later, our applicant was receiving calls for phone screens and possible interviews. 

    We were skeptical about ResumeRabbit.com's ability to deliver the results claimed, but we were favorably impressed and found high value in the service.  We were also pleased to learn that;
    - Resume Rabbit does not share personal information with any 3rd party marketers,
    - uses the latest secured web servers with SSL encryption, 
    - is verified with digital certificates by Verisign, and
    - endorsed by the Better Business Bureau.
    - Resume Rabbit was established in 1999

    To cut your job search time by hours and get measurable results try ResumeRabbit.com.
