How to be a Wanted Resource?
Being wanted by every tech firm is a dream come true. Imagine your inbox stuffed with job offers from Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Google and more. Being sought after by every firm conceivable would mean endless work that you can take to the bank.
Having job offers waiting in your inbox is ideal for anyone who dreads being unemployed between gigs. Some of us who pay instalments on our credit cards or pay child support cannot stop working. We go from pay check to pay check and having a job lined up after one ends is a matter of life and death.
Colleagues of mine who have signed up with ResumeRobin treats it like an insurance policy for the possibility of being unemployed. They want some assurance that there is a job waiting for them if the current job ends or the budget is cut. With ResumeRobin, your resume is marketed to some of the most iconic tech firms around.
You might not be in the market for a new job because you are happy where you are at. But wouldn't it be nice to find out there is a job that pays more or is less of a commute for you? Who knows? It may be a job that gives you an instant promotion or give you the freedom to invent something new and wonderful for mankind.
How to Beat Everybody to a Job?
I just heard on the news that there are 7,200 more people laid off from IT departments all over Canada. This makes job agencies more busier as they are processing more resumes submitted from people looking for work. The problem is, there are fewer job postings to go around.
You can check our Job Search page daily to get the latest job postings in the US or search for jobs specifically in Canada or the US. This may be cumbersome but there may be a job posting for you.
Once you see a job that you are suitable for, you should get your resume in order to send out. Remember your resume is the most important tool to let an employer know who you are and what you can offer to their company.
If you don't have the time to scour job boards, I think the best way to secure a job is to register your resume with a Resume Distribution service such as ResumeRobin. Once there is a match, ResumeRobin will send your resume electronically to the employer's database. It can be instant gratification because your resume will be among the first ones to arrive at the employer's inbox. This is a great advantage to get your resume submitted before anyone else sees the job posting.
