Too many, too few, or just the right amount?
How many resumes have you sent in the past month?
I remember when I was a student at McGill University in Montreal, I thought that job hunting was a pure numbers game and that I needed to get out as many resumes as possible if I wanted a good chance at finding a job.
Luckily, at that time I didn't know about resume distribution services, also known as “resume blasters”, where you can pay to have your resume sent to thousands of recruiters or employers, turning yourself into a creator of job search spam.
Can you imagine what it's like to be on the receiving end of those resume blasts? And we wonder why recruiters don't always respond…
