..download my resume…go to my linkedin profile

i get candidates that send me a cover letter, telling me how good they are…fair enough..bu then, instead of attaching a resume, the want to get fancy and tell me to go to their website and download their resume…or to go to their linkedin profile and view their experience..

DON’T DO THIS….hiring authorities and guys like me who get 100 resumes a day, don’t have time to go to another website or to a linkedin profile and download information…there are simply too many resumes..

now, a few years from now, when there are more jobs than people…and it will come.. ( i remember the mid 70’s, late 80’s, late 90’s when people could get a job without a resume) you can tell hiring authorities and recruiters to download your resume or go to your linkedin page…but for the foreseeable future, send your resume the traditional way..

the other day i got a “power point resume”…a well put together power point presentation…unfortunately, it did not contain the candidates contact information and it was a mess when i printed it out….don’t do this either
