There are a hundreds of places where you can post your resume online, but to be honest, most of the sites aren’t worth your time. Here are a couple rules of thumb I would use if you’re looking for places to post your resume:
1. Do employers use the site? If not, there’s not much point in posting your resume there, right?
2. Does the site charge money to upload your resume? If so, run. There are plenty of great sites that offer resume uploads for free. You’d probably just be wasting your money.
To keep your personal information safe and make the best use of your time, I’d recommend focusing on the following resume posting sites. They’re all reputable and 100% free for you to use.
Is this a complete list of the good resume posting sites?
Definitely not! Depending on the type of work you want, there are many other sites you should make use of. For instance, if you want a job in the tech industry, Dice.com is a great place to post your resume.
To find career specific sites, I’d recommend asking people in your field on LinkedIn or Twitter for recommendations.
I’ve uploaded my resume everywhere, and I’m not getting any calls. What should I do?
This could be a sign that your resume is not optimized for the correct keywords. Ask yourself this: If you were looking for a candidate with your experience, what words would you use look for them? Now, are you using those words on your resume?
If not, there’s a big opportunity for improvement. I’d recommend using Indeed and searching for your targeted words. Study the resumes that show up at the top, and borrow shamelessly.
