Another resume option is to use a resume distribution — a resume “blasting” — service. Now, you can probably discern from what we’ve said previously that we don’t find resume-blasting especially effective or fair to employers, but they are an option that may work from some job-seekers in certain circumstances. These services typically send your resume to a select group of recruiters and/or employers. Rather than the passive posting or publishing of your resume, these services specialize in sending your resume to recruiters and employers who subscribe to their services. You can get more information by checking out this section of Quintessential Careers. The site, ResumeRabbit, for example, allows job-seekers to submit just one resume to it, and then they submit resumes to many, many of the top job boards — for a fee.
And still another option is to visit the online classified ads of major newspaper, an especially good choice if you’re relocating to another city. While newspaper want ads might be considered an old-fashioned venue for job-hunting, they are actually every bit as current as the Internet because most major newspapers carry their want ads online (and usually many more online than in print). Searching online want ads from newspapers is another variation on sticking with local sources for your Internet job search.

Q: What if my resume’s format doesn’t work with the rigidity of a job board’s profile form?
A: You can supplement your resume postings on job boards by publishing your resume — formatted the way you feel best spotlights your qualifications — on your own Web page.
There’s usually a spot on the job board’s intake form for additional information. Once thing you can include in that field is the URL for your resume on your own Web page.
