On-line searching, again


CareerBuilder has yet another set of tips for posting your resume and cover on line.

First, narrow results. Always! See what you can find under "advance searches."

Don't use one res to fit all. Look at the posting and tweak your resume.

AND--tweak it to contain keywords and phrases in the listing. Verbatim! Remember, a computer  may do the initial "look." The job listing may say, "team player," but if your resume says, "worked with others," it won't catch it.

Forget wanting to hear back. No news is bad news.
