    2. 2. Place an ad “ I want to hire someone whose work is already known to me.” “ I want to hire someone who walks in the door and can show me samples of previous work.” “ I want to hire someone from another organization using a recruiter.” “ I will look at resumes.” “ I want to hire someone from a stack of potential candidates that some agency has screened for me.” Typical job-hunter starts here. Employers start here . Copyright 1996,2002 by Richard Bolles, What Color is Your Parachute?
    3. 3. For a resume to achieve results online, some employer: <ul><li>has got to be desperate to find someone like you; and </li></ul><ul><li>has got to be at the point, in their search for someone like you, that they are reduced to reading resumes (many employers' least favorite way of filling a position; they'll try anything else, first, since they regard the task of reading resumes as just this side of having a root canal); and then this employer </li></ul><ul><li>has got to go online looking for a resume-posting site (and remember, there are at least 10 million U.S. employers – not to mention other countries – who don't even think of the Internet when it's time to hire); but if they do, then this employer </li></ul><ul><li>has got to stumble across the site where you posted your resume – and there are hundreds of such sites on the Internet; and then this employer </li></ul><ul><li>has got to accidentally stumble across your resume on that site; and then this employer </li></ul><ul><li>has got to take the time and trouble to read it; and then this employer </li></ul><ul><li>has got to take the time and trouble to print it out , in all its blah ASCII sameness; and then this employer </li></ul><ul><li>has got to decide, after studying it, that they like it enough to invite you in . </li></ul>Copyright 1999 by Richard Bolles, Job-Hunting on the Internet, pg 55.
