- Post a “friendly” resume that can be easily read by the Applicant Tracking System. Remove symbols and formatting.
- Update your profile and reload your resume each week. Recruiters typically pull “active” or “recent” resumes.
- Understand how the job board gets its jobs. Are they an aggregator (scans the internet and pulls jobs listed from other websites) or site for recruiters and employers to post openings.
- Having your resume on every job board could work against you. Multiple recruiters might pick your resume up and want to submit for the same position. If there is a conflict, the hiring company will move on to the next candidate rather than determine which recruiter actually submitted you first.
- Change your preference (title, geographic region, industry) from time to time so that your resume might be picked up in one of them.
- Use the job boards to identify positions, but apply directly on the hiring company’s website.
