Are Resume Distribution Services Worth It?

As a recruiter, I get resumes from resume distribution services on a regular basis. The question I hear from candidates is usually "Are these services really worth it?" My initial thought is always no - I believe that the best jobs come from networking and other targeted strategies.

Then I remember the handful of high level people I've met, and subsequently placed, who came to me through a resume broadcast mailing. And I have to be honest. These are people who I probably would not have found, had it not been for this service.

So, if you're in a job search, and you're looking for a way to get some good exposure for your background, try one or two of these services. You'll reach some people in the executive search community in a very efficient way.

One note of caution...if you are currently employed, and need your search to remain confidential, this is not a strategy I would recommend.

Resume Distribution Options

You'll need to decide which option is right for you. Compare services not only in terms of price, but also in terms of how highly targeted your send outs will be, number of recipients, quality of their list, etc.

We're planning a comprehensive review of these services to make your comparison easier. In the meantime, if you're anxious to get started, use these links to check out what's available.
