You Spoke! We listened

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 you to record an audio introduction and your FREE Video Resume as well! Of course you can you fill out our online profile and resume, upload your pre-written resume, save a cover letter and save yet another pre-written resume if you choose.

You will have your own Resume Center where you will be in complete control of your profile and resume(s). Work on all of it or just a portion......the choice is yours. You are in control of all your information. You can encrypt your resume and contact information and store it in our electronic vault with our state of the art Department of Defense styled encryption system, or you can go to the other extreme and make all of your information public on your own personal web page.

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, This gives 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! Remember, a video resume does NOT have to be a video of you!! It can be a video of your work instead. 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

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how successful using localhelpwanted.net has been for my business. Being a small business and on a budget we chose to list a 7 day posting for a position with our company on Tuesday and By Friday received many more applicants than we thought we would, including four excellent candidates for the position.

I will definitely use localhelpwanted.net in the future for our hiring needs.

It's a collection of "real" companies. Other career sites have companies that are a lot of telemarketing, or ground up sales. It can be very frustrating!
