Many Job Seekers Make A Big Mistake
NEW YORK, NY — Joel Cheesman is the brains behind Cheezhead.com, a popular blog covering the rapidly evolving world of online recruiting. Cheesman gives professionals plenty to chew on, whether he’s musing about the recent launch of NotchUp.com, a site that connects companies willing to pay for interviews with top candidates, or rebuking a gaming company for its less-than-stellar careers page.
We asked Cheesman for some insight into the newest job-search tools. Here’s his take on the biggest mistake people make when hunting for a job online these days:
“Technology has made it incredibly easy to broadcast your resume to job boards and companies very quickly. The tools are great to use, although some job seekers might depend too much on these tools and forget to continue to network. Some think if they put their resume on only a few job boards, then the jobs should come to their door. It’s important to broadcast your resume on multiple job boards, including small niche sites and do not forget to continue networking. At the end of the day, the job hunt is largely about people who see your resume and the people they show it to.”
