The world of Resume Writing and the broader job market for that matter continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Things that were ‘in’ just a few years ago are now ancient history. (Remember career objective statements and bright sparkling borders in Resumes!) Jobs that existed in every community have been made obsolete by advances in technology, and the media is full of articles that debate lists of occupations for the future that don’t currently exist. Professional Resume Writers need to keep pace with the changing demands of employers and the broader recruitment industry, but that’s another big conversation on its own.
Technology and the internet now play a pivotal role in job hunting and the employment marketplace. The likes of SEEK, Domain, SmartJobs, CareerOne, Indeed, LinkedIn and a myriad of job search websites all provide easy and convenient means for employers and potential employees to connect. So, as part of that process and to help generate interest in your experience and skill set, it’s tempting to create lots of accounts and upload your Resume for potential employers and recruiters to see.
Before you go down that path, there are a few things you should consider before plastering your Resume and personal details across the internet. There are benefits and potential risks.
The exposure from uploading profile and/or Resume information to reputable sites can open many doors and lead you to opportunities you wouldn’t have otherwise had. There are risks in exposing personal information to the internet, but there are also tangible benefits for those looking to develop their careers and open up job opportunities.
You might be feeling a bit confused over how to present yourself in a positive way to employers. If that’s you, then we need to talk!
