Barbaract,

I have posted my resume on Careerbuilder.com and have had some interviews as a result (no job offers though). I DO NOT advise posting it on Monster.com though. I have received several calls from scammers and telemarketers who told me they got my phone number and other info off the resume I posted on that site.

:)

It's a good book to read with a spiral bound notebook handy as there are many writing exercises and notes you'll want to hang onto...GL!

Thank you for the recommendation. I have heard of the book, but never read it.
I did leave a career that I was good at, but wasn't happy in so maybe this will help me!

Have a great day!

Sounds like you are doing what you can on the 'net side of things.

Sometimes volunteering in some capacity that taps into a hobby, interest or skill of ours can put us "out there" in such a way that can lead to a job. If not at the place where you are volunteering, sometimes through a connection you've made at the place where you are volunteering.

A great book I can highly recommend is "What Color Is Your Parachute?" to help you re-think your career and perhaps conceptualize a whole new direction for you to pursue. The premise of the book is that there are already zillions out there who hate what they do for a living: why add to their numbers? Assess your skills, interests abilities and see how you can re-shape them into a career that is marketable...!

Welcome to our SparkTeam...great to see you jumping into our message boards!

Hi!

I have been unemployed since March of 2011. I was wondering if anyone has posted their resume on careerbuilder or a site like that and if anyone hired a headhunter and what your responses were to both?

I am trying to find alternative ways to looking for work. If anyone has any other ideas they would like to share it would be most appreciated. I just spent about 3 hours online looking up my usual sites for work and only came up with one job to apply to.

Have a great day!
Barbara
