Job Hunting and Resumes





rampantinsanity
For one reason or another, I always seem to be looking for a new job. I was wondering what everyone else uses for their job hunting? I usually use craigslist but sometimes, it gets a little slow, even in the big metro area that I live in.

A word about resumes...has anyone tried a bullet point resume? I've been toying around with the idea for a while after a HR manager complained that my resume was too long. I made one up and tried it, now I've just got to wait and see if I get any responses to such a non-traditional resume.

I guess you can use monster, I found out there are quite a lot of responses from employers...

I've used monster before, but I really don't like it. All I ever seem to get are calls from employment agencies, usually for jobs that aren't even in my area! Yesterday, I got a call about a job that was almost two hours away from where I live. As that I'm not made of money, I can't afford the extra gas to drive two hours for a job that only pays 8.50 per hour.

I found a job on craigslist today, and the funniest thing happened. I went for an interview and the guy ended up hiring me right then and I stayed and worked for five hours! Hah. It doesn't pay great, but I like the job, putting text on his client's websites and just generally proofreading them, sometimes fooling around in photoshop or uploading pictures.

I used the bullet resume with him and he said that it stood out from the pile, and helped him to see exactly what I had done and what programs I could use without having to read through a lot of stuff.

Rampant, did you submit it as an digital file?
Or, did you print out a hard copy and submit that?
How many pages did it wind up being?

Hi rampantinsanity,
it's dependant of your profession and qualification. Normaly a head-hunter as a specialist in your business is the best way because he knows companies ans HR-manager in this part.
Have a good luck.

The best way to get a good job is to know people, start asking friends that you know and try to find contacts in the field you are interested in.
