Send Resumes to Job Recruiters
The best-written resume is worthless if no one sees it!
So, use one of the following methods to send resumes:
Five compelling reasons why you should apply online:
- It's fast. The person with the power to hire you could be reading your job application within minutes of you sending it.
- It's inexpensive. It's cheaper, per resume, then the cost of a postal stamp! No paying stationery, couriers or long distance phone charges.
- It's easy. Send applications right from your computer desktop. You can paste files (like your CV or cover letter) from your own hard drive or floppy disk.>

Remember that your CV/resume must be targeted, scannable and generate hits. If you have difficulty with your CV writing or resume writing instead of staring at a blank piece of paper, use CV samples, CV templates, resume samples and resume templates or:
