Refresh Your Resume Sweepstakes Winners

Posted by Kathleen Smith

We’ve got a winner! Two winners in fact from our Refresh Your Resume Sweepstakes. D.S. from Silver Spring, MD and T.W. from Perry, FL. Congratulations to both D.S. and T.W. and thanks to everyone who participated.

If you’re an active job seeker, it’s still important to Refresh on a regular basis to let employers know you’re still an active job seeker.

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.
