                                     How to Use Job Sites

The best (and least expensive) way to use the paid job sites (many of these are, many aren’t) is
to “cruise” the jobs available, which most of these sites will let you do for free. Only sign up if
there is a job matching you almost exactly, and then don’t expect much out of it.

There is a 1/1000 chance of obtaining a job through an unsolicited résumé, especially since
many of the posted jobs, even at the upper level, will send your credentials through HR,
which is your sworn enemy.

If you see a job on these sites that you think you want, see if you can get a connection, either
through LinkedIn or your physical network, to get you to the hiring authority, rather than
applying on-site.

Do not post your résumé on these things! Do not bring up a website for yourself with all of
your job information on it. If you must post a résumé to apply to a job (likely), don’t make it
available for public viewing. You’ll be sorry. Every vendor in the world and headhunters
with jobs that aren’t anything like what you’re looking for will be calling you.

A public website with your career information on it simply makes it easier for someone at a
lower level to screen you out without you talking with the actual hiring authority.
