Refresh your job board posting every other day so you appear in the top 20 search results.. All you need to do is log “Not our account” and change one thing on your resume, a word, a sentence, or even just punctuation and you will automatically be promoted to the front of the line. Corporate recruiters are lazy, especially if they’re using job boards – instead of direct sourcing – and most of them use job boards exclusively. Use different titles to describe yourself. For example post one for project manager, another for manager of design and yet another for construction manager because most recruiters search by title rather than content and certain occupations can have several different functional titles which all describe the same job.
Changing the date on your resume keeps you current.
Limit yourself to two or three major boards like: Monster, CareerBuilder and probably your local newspaper’s job board if they have one.
Focus the majority of your posting efforts on niche job boards.
Tailor the content to the board.
Post every type of resume you can, functional, chronological, extreme makeover etc., because you just don’t know what will attract their attention.
