Resume blasts from the past?
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…
So what about you: how many resumes have you sent in the past month? Vote now.
