Indeed is a great service. It is aggregating all sorts of jobs from all over the place. It’s to be replaced upload the resume and have it distributed to people. There was one thing about the indeed resume service that is a little quirky. They shield the contact information from people who are searching for it and, thus, you have to contact the candidate through their system.
Someone should be a workaround for that because 1 of the issues with doing that is that it makes. Indeed, more importantly needs to be in this process. If you want to have that delay with people contacting you, if you want that sort of “emailing messages sort of thing” that indeed offers, great! Leave it as it is. Most people I know want to have speed in their communications. They do because, the fact of the matter is, you are competing with other individuals for these jobs. Any delay can cost access to an opportunity that will make sense for you. I think you get that.
Here’s what I saw someone do. Melvin, great job! I really like this!
What he did in the body of his resume, under his current job and worked into the content, he put his phone number and email address. Indeed is not going to purge that. As a result, for recruiters who wanted to reach him, they will be able to get his name, phone number and email address and reach out immediately to him. No delays. Beautiful!
If you are actively job, that’s a way for you to go. When you are not actively job hunting, see if you can remove the resume from the site or edit that area so that you’re not getting more calls or emails..
Great little hack. I thought I would bring to your attention.

Summary

Indeed is a great service. It is aggregating all sorts of jobs from all over the place. It's to be replaced upload the resume and have it distributed to people. There was one thing about the indeed resume service that is a little quirky. They shield the contact information from people who are searching for it and, thus, you have to contact the candidate through their system.

Someone should be a workaround for that because 1 of the issues with doing that is that it makes. Indeed, more importantly needs to be in this process. If you want to have that delay with people contacting you, if you want that sort of "emailing messages sort of thing" that indeed offers, great! Leave it as it is.

Streamline Your Use of Job Boards | Job Search Radio

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter explains how to save time when using job boards just like recruiters do so you can go back to doing other things that will get you more results.

Summary

I want to remind you something you probably know, but may have forgotten about that will simplify your job hunting so that you can go often work in the more productive things.

The thing I'm going to remind you of is setting up search agents on different job boards in order to have jobs delivered to you. The best want to do that is Indeed.com back it up with SimplyHired.com sent because sometimes the fees that are sent to these firms are little bit different. You may get redundancies but when all is said and done, you're going to make sure that you don't miss out on something.

If you feel insecure, do this with Dice.com (if you're in technology), careerbuilder.com, monster.com, net-temps.com... Set these up is backups in case. Indeed and simplyhired miss something,

When all is said and done, what setting up a search agent does is streamline the use of job boards. In this way, you are not searching them every single day for whether there is a job therefore you. From there, I want to encourage you not to automatically respond because it has the keywords. Look at the listing to make sure that you have the actual experience, THEN, compare it with your actual resume to see if your resume Mac makes the actual case for you being qualified.

So often, I get resumes that in no way, shape or form fit when I'm actually looking for but there is probably A word in there that came up in the search agent and send the resume. It is a waste of their time and mind..

Just take a moment and see if your resume actually fits the job If you experience fits the job at your resume is generic, tailor the resume and then submit it. You don't want to be like that broken watch that is right twice a day. You want to actually get the interview. After all, if you're going to make the investment in time, you actually want to get the interview and not just simply flip resumes over the transom like your person at a fast food restaurant flipping burgers to people. You actually want to be getting the interview.

Again, tell your resume to what you see from the search agent and then, from there, submit.

I'm interviewing for a job and saw it has been reposted

I’m Interviewing For a Job and Saw That It Has Been Re-Posted (VIDEO)


Does that mean I don’t have a chance of getting the job?

Summary

The question for today is, "I'm interviewing for a job and just let it has been re-posted by the company. Does that mean I don't have a chance for getting the job?" Have they been rejected? Do they have no chance?

The answer is, "No!" When he walked through the mechanics of how firms conduct themselves. There are always exceptions to this, but this is the rule in almost all cases.

Some firms have their job postings on a setting called auto re-post. That is, a site (I will use The Ladders as an example) , where if you have not taken the position down, it will be re-posted and refresh to the top of the list after a certain number of days. Many sites offer that feature to employers and they take it gladly because, if the job is still open, they don't have to waste time re-posting it. That's option number 1.

Option number 2 is that you have been rejected and you did a crappy job on your interview and they are not interested. However, the likelihood is that (3) they are going to keep running that had until such time as they have an offer extended and accepted in the person has started. Most firms conduct themselves that way because they have been burned many times by people who say yes to their job offers and don't start, they have been burned by job hunters who lead them on...

As much as people complain about employers, there are a lot of job hunters to create the conditions that everyone lives under.

What is most likely his option number 1 (auto re--posting) and number 3 (they are going to keep running that had until someone starts the position).

After all, most firms will tell you if you have been rejected. They won't contact you for weeks. If they do contact you, you will get the kiss of death letter. You know, "thank you so much for applying for this position." Then it gets worse from there.

Keep your head up. Don't sweat it. Keep on plugging.

Does Posting Your Resume on Job Boards Actually Help My Job Search? (VIDEO)


A viewer asks whether job boards will actually help their job search.

Summary

The question I received was a simple but elegant question. "Just posted my resume on job boards help the job search?" They use the example of Indeed and GlassDoor as the example of job boards and wonder if they can actually help them.

Many simply answer the question by saying, "Yes, it is helpful." But not to the degree to which you might hope it will be helpful. The statistics I see are pretty consistent. 7% of jobs are filled as a result of using a job board. 21% to 22% are filled by recruiters. Now I know the recruiter sometimes use job boards to get the people that they fill positions with so I do is combine both numbers and say the job boards and recruiters fill 30% of all positions.

That leaves 70% of all positions and how do they get filled. The answer is networking. Networking. Networking to people who you know who know other people that you don't know. The statistics on that are that 70% of the 70% or 49% are filled that way.

So let's be optimistic. 30% of positions are filled by job boards (let me let you in on a secret. It is not that high). 70% of filled as a result of networking. Where do you think you should be spending almost all of your time? The answer of course is networking.

Job boards are a resource that is overused by job hunters because of the convenience that they offer. After all, all you have to do is set up a search agent that delivers jobs to your inbox. That's wonderful! But they are delivered to a lot of people's inboxes and, as a result, you are swimming in a pond with a line of fish.

You want to be swimming in ponds where there aren't a lot of fish. Where you are identifying people who need to finish and you present yourself as one and the solution to a need that they have.

So, yes, will they help you with your job search? You bet they will!

But not as much as you hope.

Don’t Forget This LinkedIn Feature | Job Search Radio

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter reminds you not to overlook this feature on LinkedIn.

Summary

Let's talk today about another feature of LinkedIn that tends to be neglected. It should be an obvious one. It isn't.

We tend to focus on LinkedIn as a networking site. We talk about groups. We talk about profiles. We forget one thing – – it is also a job board. It works differently than the traditional job boards. So let's start off by talking about its functionality.

You can set preferences for location. You can send multiple locations for where you are open to looking for a job. It will pull from your job title firms that have openings in your area or specified area that fit that job title. You can always scroll down and look further to consider firms within your network that are hiring.

You can look at jobs in 2 ways. One is by positions available within your geographic area that are consistent with your job title as well as firms within your network that have openings.

Ostensibly, that doesn't necessarily fit but is designed for individuals who, shall we say, are trying to network within an organization to tap into a hidden job market or it is designed to correlate with organizations that you want to do some networking in so that you can work back channel so that perhaps there could be an opening created for you.

Don't neglect the jobs area. Don't make it your primary recruiting source or jobhunting source. Make the primary part of LinkedIn (the networking capabilities) your primary focus. But don't forget about this 1, too.

I've Used Job Boards

I’ve Used Job Boards. You Should, Too | Job Search Radio

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter confesses to have used job boards when he was still doing recruiting and was trying to find candidates for clients. Here, he encourages you to do the same… But not as much as you normally do.

Summary

I know you is in John Hunter are constantly being told not to use job boards to find work. I've use them. I think you should use them, too.

BUT

Job hunters over use them. They spend 80% of their time on job boards when, in fact, job boards, only fill AT BEST 30% of all positions.

So why do you do it? The answer is because most of you are lazy. Most of you try to take the easy way out instead of doing the hard work necessary to network to find a job.

You see, when I say I use job boards, I also would network aggressively, I do LinkedIn research. I reach out to any number of people. I do direct mail campaigns. I talk to absolute strangers. I blog. I created videos.. I create impressions with people. I publish the e-zines. Several podcasts. I do a lot of things for people to find me and the work that I do.

You don't do that.

If you're working full time, yes, you come home and do some things but are there 5 minutes in the day where you can network with someone? 5 MINUTES?? You don't take a break at some point for 5 minutes and reach out to someone you used to work with?

I don't buy this, "I don't have time" stuff. I'm working a lot and doing a lot of things. You can be doing that, too.

Don't take the easy way out because it doesn't really serve your career well.

Why Was The Job Re-Posted After I Did So Well On The Interview? (VIDEO)


There are many reasons why would jobs are reposted after a good interview. Here, I offer a few alternatives. They’re very logical if you place yourself in the employer’s shoes.

Do you really think employers are trying to help you?

You already know you can’t trust recruiters—they tell you as much as they think you need to know to take the job they after representing so they collect their payday.

The skills needed to find a job are different yet complement the skills needed to do a job.
