Refresh Your Resume and Win a $500 AMEX Gift Card

Posted by Kathleen Smith

When was the last time you looked at your ClearedJobs.Net profile or resume? Did you know when employers search a resume database they typically search for job seekers who have been “active” in the last 30-45 days? That’s because they don’t want to be wading through job seekers who have already gotten a job or who are no longer in the job market. And that’s what employers assume if you are outside that 30-45 day window.

You don’t have to actually change your resume, although you should certainly review your resume and profile to see if they do need updating. Login and click “Update” under one of the resumes you have uploaded. Today’s date will appear and you’re good to go.

So login. Update. Let employers know you’re still an active job seeker. You’re entered to win one of two $500 AMEX Gift Cards we’ll be giving away!  

Not a ClearedJobs.Net job seeker? That’s OK too. As long as you have an active or current security clearance you can create a job seeker profile, upload your resume, and you’re entered to win.

The fine print: The Refresh Your Resume Sweepstakes runs from August 14 through September 16, 2011. Winners are selected from candidates who Update their resume or create a new job seeker profile on ClearedJobs.Net during the contest period. All candidates must have an active or current security clearance.
