How long should it take to make a resume?

Do employers read resumes?

First and foremost, employers want to know if you’re qualified for the job. Hiring managers spend most of their time skimming through resumes to identify keywords that match the job description. Create a list of skills, knowledge, and experience required for the position that match your experience.

Do employers actually use indeed?

The Major Players. When it comes to general job searching, Monster, Careerbuilder, and Indeed definitely run the game. However, just because a site is large and popular doesn’t mean employers choose to use them. Indeed is the most all-inclusive job posting board.

Who can see your indeed resume?

Public resumes are visible to anyone, however, your phone number and email address are provided only to employers to whom you apply. Your street address and postal code are visible only to you. Private resumes are not visible (and employers cannot find you).

Is applying to jobs online a waste of time?

Applying for jobs online is definitely not a waste of time and energy. As a recruiter, I’ve made plenty of hires from candidates who came in the door that way—they didn’t have connections, they didn’t have an internal contact making introductions. They simply sent their resume through the online application systems.
