If you are tired of posting your resumes on the same old job boards, with the same old lack of results, then you have come to the right place. We know that employers don't hire a resume, they hire a Person! That person could be you! So how can you let your prospective employer know that you have what it takes? For starters you are NOT stuck with a piece of paper! We allow your FREE Video Resume as well! Of course you can you fill out our online resume, upload your pre-written resume, save a cover letter and save yet another pre-written resume if you choose.
Next you can take the steps to be an aggressive job seeker. Make your resume more personal with a current photo. Record and upload an audio introduction, giving you a chance to tell the employer why you're the best candidate BEFORE the interview. Upload samples of your work. Lets say you paint houses, then upload some pictures of your completed work. Maybe you build web sites, upload a screen shot of your work. Does your work involve writing? Then upload some of your work in a text file. Have letters of recommendation? Upload them as well! For our job seekers that subscribe to our premium service, you can even upload additional flash video resumes or samples of your past work. Plus you will have more space available for your portfolio. * some features are available to premium job seekers only
