Submitting Resumes. What else can we do?
Filed under: Position Searching, Public Relations docs, Recruiters, Post-docs, Technicians

Mario Sundar highlighted Liz Ryan’s blog
mentioning tips for following up on
electronic resume submission
.  A previous
post
here also mentioned tips on
electronic
submission.

So often I have heard of people simply
submitting their resume on-line and stop
there, expecting that just following these
directions to take care of
everything.

As Sundar/Ryan’s and other posts indicate,
your
document will be one of dozens, or
hundreds or
more and will be treated, if
at all, with
screening software.  The
document may not be necessarily “read”.
It is incumbent on
job seekers to
systematically pursue
target institutions
using a number of
tactics to further
your application.


Also,
Inform your references of your interest.
(It goes almost without saying, to include
your list of references to your resume
submission.)

In fact, 
it could be wise to seek out the references’
input before the application submission.
They may know key individuals who
can help your application process.
