internet job searches 

There are thousands of job search sites on the Internet for both local positions and jobs throughout the world.  Many who face job loss believe that the best strategy for finding a job quickly is to access these sites and engage in mass resume submission.  The belief is that “if I submit 100 resumes, at least one has to result in a job offer or interview.”

Unfortunately, this usually not the case.

More typically, mass resume submission is unproductive, as usually resumes are not tailored for the specific job opening.  As a result, candidates are often given little or no consideration.  Tailoring a resume for a specific job requires time, especially when an online application must also be submitted with a resume.
