Thanks for the heads-up. I have been considering doing that resume zapper , now I won't. It stinks that they advertise it on job sites and prey on people who are desperately looking for a job. I think you have to be wary of anything on-line nowadays. For those of you who have heard nothing from your resume distribution attempts, consider that the resumes do not necessarily go to companies that are looking to hire in your field if they are hiring at all.
Also, there is also a chance that your resume is the problem and not the service. Don't shoot the messenger. Just make sure your resume is error free. One mistake can land your resume in the trash can. I've been on the hiring side of things. We didn't throw those resumes out or shred them; however, we filed them in that "well, one never knows" file.
My guess is that most of the "resume blasters" go with set lists of where they send resumes. And it has nothing to do with what companies may need. Excellent source is to buy a copy of the "Book of Lists" from your metro area's Business Journal. Career Hunter in Denver, Colorado. I have seen large scale credential distributions work 10, employers and recruiters and work well.
That is usually overkill, but that's the point, to achieve saturation of the potential market. If you do go the distribution route, a reputable firm will let you see the identified targets before they go out. Then you can be relatively sure that they picked good targets. Alan in New York, New York. They instantly posted my resume to 76 job sites. Doing it myself would have taken forever. I received lots of inquiries from recruiters and companies. But I have to admit, there is a fair demand for someone with my degree and experience in the area I live.
The job I took resulted from my resume posted on a small job site I didn't even know existed. But here's the thing. You should expect that they distribute your resume where they say they will.
They don't control the economy, the demand for someone with your skills, etc. They didn't write your resume or select your salary requirements, so how can they be responsible if you get contacted. A job search includes a ton of things you should do. Sending your resume to job boards or recruiters is one. And there's definitely a chance that someone will find you on a job board or a recruiter will have a client looking to hire someone with your skills today or in the future.
The same goes for sending your resume to recruiters. They may need someone with your skills, they may not. They may put you in their database and need someone like you in 6 months, and find you there. These services don't change the job market. But they increase your chances of being in the right place at the right time. I think that is well-put and a great explanation. No one way of contacting emplployers guarantees anything.
Job boards, recruiters, you never know what will provide the right venue. But I think on a purely cost-benefit basis, if you consider how long it would have taken to post to 70 sites assuming you knew that they existed would probably have taken almost 12 hours, at a rate of ten minutes each.
But I will put them on my list at www. Benjamin Hurley Organisation Address. Benjamin Hurley Admin Address H1W 1G4 Tech Address John Dickson in Irwin, Pennsylvania. Looking to hear for anyone who has delt with or knows of specific complaints with ITS executive job placement system or Bob Gerberg.

BigT in Mannford, Oklahoma. Your are much better off choosing a few of the top job board providers such as Monster, Hot Jobs, Dice, Career builder, opening a free account and posting your resume there.
All major companies and recruiters use these boards as their primary choice to find good people. It is very important to go into each of those boards and update your resume once or twice a week. This is a method that really works.
Many companies will only look for resumes less than one week old, updating them or refreshing them keeps your resume active and getting in front of those who are hiring. Then re-post it at least once a week, I usually do this on Sunday nights. Paying someone to place your resume on 70 job boards will do you good for a week or so, then your going to be skipped over because it has not been kept fresh.
Save your money, most of these so called scams are just that, they will get your money and "See Ya Later". The big job boards give you stats on how many people have viewed your resume, if you see low numbers viewing it, you may want to re-write it with more emphasis on key words that trigger the software the hiring companies use to find the right person. Remember keep refreshing it!! Your resume is the key, it needs to be written with the employer in mind, What do you have that they need, and how well are you showing that right up front.
What do you have in the first 10 sentences that will catch their eye. If there is not a WOW right up front, then chances of them reading further are pretty slim.
Good Luck everyone, and keep your confidence up, you'll find that right job That's a really good point. When jobseekers look at lists of jobs, they are usually sorted by most recent date, and it makes sense that employers do the same thing going the other way.
I would add that anyone who posts an open searchable resume on the big boards use a separate email address. My profile on CareerBuilder has earned me about 10 scam emails every day since then. You might even want to setup tracking email addresses such as myname-monster Dan in Gurnee, Illinois. Casey in Bellville, Texas said: PEOPLE ,,,, I need to hear from you if you have had a bad experience with any company or service that has made promises to you about distribution of your resume.
They make some very nice promises , but after you send in the money or after you complain about their lack of service you cannot get them to respond , or even answer their phone. I have had an amazing experience. Maybe because I used a targeted resume distribution service. I recommend that one hightly - if you are looking in that market segment.
BigT in Mannford, Oklahoma said: It's VERY plain -- almost all text -- no bells and whistles, and was designed in to replace the local newspaper classifieds. There are NO job agents, NO registrations, the job categories are crude, you can't search by keyword and it's all done by local area, so you can't do national searches.

Very useful info there! I went to www. I wish I could have waited, since he is doing resumes for half off this month, but I got a job quickly, and that was the main thing.
I also used the free links there which are the same that the marketing companies sell. The best part was understanding that even one good resume isn't as useful as it used to be. There are different types of resumes and letters needed, so be sure when you go to a professional resume writer that you get at least different resumes and a bunch of letters. That way I had them ready to use as needed.
There was a website called bewareits. I would pay more attention to those than the ones who were offended by a salesman and never used their services. I prefer to know who I'm sending a resume to.
If I would consider a company, it is worth my while to customize the resume for them complete with a letter. My questions would be, if you are customizing your resume for each company, doesn't that slow down the process considerably? I had to send out over letters to companies I didn't really know that well to find 4 that wanted to interview me. If I had tailored each one to the company, it would have taken even longer.
The second question would be, doesn't a customized resume play to what you think they want, instead of what you know you want? I changed the position title at the top as appropriate, but I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to do and what I am good at, so I didn't really have to change what my strengths and accomplishments were.
