For a resume to
achieve results
online, some
employer:

\ue000
has got to bedesper ate to find someone like you; and
\ue000
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
\ue000
has got to go online looking for a resume-posting site (and remember, there areat
least 10 million U.S. employers \u2013 not to mention other countries \u2013 who don't even think
of the Internet when it's time to hire); but if they do, then this employer
\ue000
has got to stumble across the site where you posted your resume \u2013 and there are
hundreds of such sites on the Internet; and then this employer
\ue000
has got to accidentally stumble across your resume on that site; and then this
employer
\ue000
has got to take the time and trouble to read it; and then this employer
\ue000
has got to take the time and trouble to print it out, in all its blah ASCII sameness;
and then this employer
\ue000
has got to decide, after studying it, that they like it enough to invite you in.
