Sponsored: Save time & confidentially post your resume online
Wouldn't it be nice to ensure your resume could be seen by the employers and recruiters that are currently hiring? One way to do that is to post your resume on all the top career sites where hiring managers search for candidates to fill their open positions. While posting your resume on several career websites may help you land one of these jobs, many people are afraid of who may see their resume along with other concerns of confidentiality.
If you want the exposure, but don't want your current employer to see your resume posting, consider using the Confidentiality feature of Resume Rabbit to post your resume to all of the top sites at once! And while your resume qualifications can be seen and you can be contacted via email, no one will see your name, street address, phone number or even your current company name. Confidentially post your resume and give yourself instant access to lots of new jobs by going to Resume Rabbit today!

Follow Up Your Cover Letter ...
By Jimmy Sweeney, President of CareerJimmy and Author of the new, Amazing Cover Letter Creator
How would you like to double your job search odds? Is that a 'yes?' If so, please read carefully because I have a bit of magic to share with you that can make that possible.
The secret formula is this: Contact the company you want to work for not once but twice--first in your initial cover letter and then in a follow-up cover letter, giving you a chance to be noticed two times instead of one.
Make a GOOD First Impression TWICE!
Most job-hunters neglect this important step. They send out cover letters and then wait and hope. If no response arrives, they get discouraged, and some give up. But you don't have to be one of them.
Take It Easy and Keep It Simple
Ten days after your first cover letter write a short opening paragraph and add it to a copy of that letter and send it to the same person you contacted before. By adding the new opening you're reminding the individual that he or she has heard from you before and now you're writing to advise that you're still interested and available to fill the position.
Dear Ms. Smith:
I contacted you a week or so ago and am following up here with a copy of my original letter in case it missed you the first time. I'm extremely interested in the position of (insert type of job) and would welcome meeting you for an in-person interview. (Continue with the original cover letter from that point on).
Think twice before you pass up this great opportunity to double your chance of landing an interview for the job you want. Follow through and follow up!
