Sending Resumes Indiscriminately Once you have a great resume, it's just as important how you use it. Most job seekers blast their resume to job boards and websites' posted openings. In fact, there are some services that exist to do just that for a fee. But is this the best way to approach it?
Referencing the current economic crisis, Neil McNulty, principal recruiter of McNulty Management Group, states, Now, more than ever, job seekers need to change their mindset from looking for 'openings' to looking for 'opportunities' ... and opportunities are borne out of crisis and chaos, and exist even in the worst economy.
This means that you, as a job seeker, must look beyond job postings and move into marketing yourself to the managers of the companies and organizations who are experiencing problems that you can solve. This can be tough at first because it means doing extra research and actually calling people who you don't know and developing conversations with them. It's those conversations, though, that will win the referrals, the interviews, and the next job for you, especially when you have a great resume to back that conversation up。
