Posting Your Resume to Online Job Boards or Position Vacant Pages on Facebook - Good or Bad Idea??

The internet has done wonders for job-seekers in myriad ways.

You can easily attain background research on a company you hope to be hired by in order to impress your potential employer in your interview.

You can network and promote your employability on sites such as LinkedIn, and you can find services such as resume writing or interview tips and hints at the click of a mouse.

While all of these innovations available on the world wide web are positive steps towards finding your next job, there are of course some potential negatives to be aware of when it comes to looking for work in the online realm.

One such trend that can potentially have adverse impacts is posting your resume to online job boards or in ‘positions vacant’ pages on Facebook. There are now countless options available to post your CV or resume online, from the very big sites such as SEEK, to smaller, localised pages on Facebook.

While it’s easy to see why such job boards and pages are popular, there are hidden pitfalls.

Cyber security experts are warning of potential scams targeting job-seekers who include their personal details in their online CVs, as well as increasing cases of identity theft.

Details that you might normally include in a hardcopy of your CV or resume such as your email address, phone numbers, address not be included in the online version of your resume. They also suggest jobseekers set up a “job search email address”, to be used exclusively for job hunting. This will avoid the trap of having to post your regular email address online, which can be used by spammers and scammers.

Once you post your resume or CV online, it is very important to be extremely wary and careful if you receive job offers, particularly via unsolicited emails. If the job offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

And if you do post your resume online, make sure you are able to easily keep track of where you’ve posted it. Maintaining a spreadsheet or document to stay up to date with the locations and timings of when and where you posted so you can easily remove or update your resume when required.

Apart from the potential privacy and security risks, it’s worth remembering that many career advisors still recommend the best way to secure a new job is by tailoring your resume or CV and cover letter for specific jobs, rather than the “scattergun” approach of posting your resume online. By posting your resume indiscriminately on a range of online job boards or Facebook groups and pages, you run the risk of appearing desperate and unfocused.

Sometimes, the old fashioned approach is still the best!
