Online Resume Posting and Promotion

How to Publicize Your Online Resumes

Online resume posting and promotion is essential if you want to get any attention for your online resumes.

Which sets you apart best? Resume objective OR power satement?

Ready for online resume posting?

If you're using a web-based resume service to design your online resume, then publishing is usually included. You're usually working right on the server, where your resume stays. (And often, they offer some sort of promotion as well.)

But, if you code your resume yourself, using the manual method, a web-design program, MS Word, or even Wordpress (or some other blogging platform), then you'll need to find a way to attract eyes to your resume. After all, just because it's live on the Web doesn't mean anyone will ever see it...

Getting "the Word" Out About Your Online Resumes

Do you know how to get the word out about your resume?

Once you've created your web resume and uploaded it to your web host, the next step is to publicize it. In other words, to get the word out!

The best way to publicize web resumes is to submit them to Google and Yahoo. It doesn't cost anything, and it may take a few days to a few weeks, but it WILL bring you visitors eventually.

But if you can't wait, here are some other ideas to jump start your online resume posting:

  • Publish the web address for your resume on your business cards.

  • Include your resume web address at the top or at the end of your printed resume, especially if you have a web-based portfolio too.

    Here's an example of a great online resume/portfolio site.

  • Include online resumes in any emails or cover letters you send to employers. Again, this can be an extremely effective way of showing an employer what you're capable of through a web-based portfolio. KMAC is an excellent example of a portfolio website.

  • Use a resume submission service like . They'll take online resume posting to the max by sending your online resume out all over the Web.

Using Social Media to Help With Online Resume Posting

Use social networking to get the word out about your job search

Many job seekers these days use social media to network with people who can help them find out about and get jobs.

Services like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn (among others) can all be helpful.

Post your resume or the URL to link to it on those services and you may find that you take job seeking to the next level. They're free to use, so it can't hurt, at any rate!

Online resume posting can't substitute for good old, face to face networking. But it can be a useful addition to your job seeker toolbox.
