News You Can Use

Just talked to my old boss, who wants me to interview for a job at one of his clients in a few weeks.

He also passed along a tip I didn’t know. When you have your resume in a database like Monster or Careerbuilder, go in and change some minor detail every week or so. He said a lot of businesses only search among those resumes added in the last seven days, and every time you change something, it labels your resume as new.

I did not know that!

  1. Wow, thanks for the tip. I just went and edited my resume on careerbuilder.com. Let’s see what happens.

  2. Yeah, I remember using that trick a couple years ago during my last protracted period of unemployment. You don’t even have to change anything, just delete a letter and reinsert it, and it’ll register as having been updated.

    Good luck on that interview.
