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.

Applying For a Job Using Indeed Is Great Except . . .

If you are going to apply for jobs using the job board, indeed.com is a terrific platform to use. After all, it aggregates content from many many different sites into one convenient place.

It also offers the capability to upload your resume to their site and apply for jobs using one click.

The site is terrific except for one little thing: it does not provide your ZIP Code when you use the one click feature. It provides your name and phone numbers as well as your city and state but no ZIP Code.

Why does this matter?

Once your resume is in a corporate or recruiter database without a ZIP Code you will never be found again when they do a search to fill positions.

Why?

When all of us to searches to fill a job we know the location of our client or the location of the site the client wants to recruit for. For the purpose of illustration let me use New York as an example.

I want to fill a job in the 10016 ZIP Code of Manhattan. I go into my trusty little database and run a search for people within a 25 mile radius of that ZIP Code. You may live in another section of New York City but if indeed provided the resume I won’t find you because the ZIP Code field is empty because indeed never gave me your ZIP Code.

You may say, “Why don’t you use a person’s area code to find someone?”

Because phone numbers are now portable, if I search by area code I may be calling people in Tucson Arizona, or elsewhere in the country who at one time lived in New York but have now moved elsewhere.

In addition, if the resume you provided indeed didn’t even include your city and state of residence, there is absolutely no way that I will know where you live.

At a minimum, every resume you submit to an employer or agency should include city, state and ZIP Code as well as your phone number in order to make it easy for people to contact you.
