JOB SEEKER CENTRAL: RESUME DATABASES
Pros and cons of posting your resume on-line. If you are in a leadership role or offer a hard to find set of skills, we can think of no positive results in posting your resume on-line. If you are currently employed, there is a very good chance that your employer will learn that you are looking elsewhere. This is unlikely to further your career. You will have no control over who grabs your resume, where they send it or how you are presented.
If you are in a more general, broad based, mid-level position and are simply looking for exposure, we would recommend that you utilize one of the more community based programs that have the largest member audience, such as Yahoo.(link) They have a long track record of success and generally record the highest traffic. But, more significantly, they have a community based membership that is focused on more than matching resumes to job descriptions, giving you exposure to a broader audience.
In general, our recommendation is that job seekers take a more active role in their own career development.
Research: locate the top 10 companies you would like to join. Visit their career center daily. Submit your resume following the guidelines they set out. Make sure your skill set matches their requirements. Do not send your resume for positions that do not match your skill set. Wait for the right opportunity to appear and then respond promptly.
