Blasting Away With The Resume - Articles Surfing
The resume is the applicant's life on paper. This is the first step anyone has to take when looking for a job regardless if the person is fresh from college or has been in the industry for quite awhile.
Writing a resume is not that hard. The applicant should just make it clear and concise so that a potential recruiter will be able to get to know the person. There are many ways to get the resume into the hands of various companies looking for new employees.
The conventional way of doing it will be for the applicant to send this out using snail mail, by fax or the internet.
The best way to get a lot of coverage is called a blast resume, which is like firing a shotgun, and making the pellets hit different targets all at once.
The applicant can open an account in one website and then have the resume sent to thousands of inboxes of various companies and recruitment firms.
The service will not edit the document but simply transmit it. This means the applicant will have to do the dirty work of reviewing it carefully. It will be a good idea to attach a cover letter to the resume.
A general one that basically introduces the person is best given that it will be hard to write more than a thousands personal ones.
Some of these sites require applicants to follow a standard font. The person should follow these rules so that the recruiter will not have hard time opening the attachment.
The person has to choose a reputable blast service. This is because the recruiter will be hesitant in opening the email given that there are a lot of spams and viruses that hit the web.
It is a good thing that most of these recruiters have made such arrangements with certain sites. The individual should just check these out in the web to find out which ones are legitimate.
Some even advertise the names of some companies who are affiliated with the service, which really helps a lot in getting more people to avail of this kind of service.
One way to get better results is to send this out to a targeted audience. It won*t do any good sending this to the pharmaceutical industry given that the person has worked in engineering for many years.
Will blast resumes guarantee the applicant a job? The answer is no. The best thing it can do is make people more aware that there is someone with certain qualifications up for grabs in the job market.
While waiting for that phone call, the applicant must use all the resources available be it that these focus on something or are more general because any one of these methods can help the person land a job.
The applicant will probably have to wait a few weeks or even months before a call for an interview will come in. This is because there are also other people out there looking for a job and possible vying for the same position.
The blast resume service is simply a means to an end. When that call comes, the applicant should come on time for an interview then hope that everything works out with a handshake sealing the deal.
