Resume Distribution Services
“I can tell that you distributed my resume this morning, because my inbox has been flooded with messages all day. I’ve already had three calls with recruiters, and I set up two phone interviews for next week. And it's just a few hours after it was sent out.” – M.W.
A few years ago, a colleague of mine started offering resume distribution to her clients. I was skeptical at first—not because I doubted the effectiveness of the service itself, but because I believed (and still believe) that the most successful and efficient job searches are built on strategic networking and direct contact with employers. I didn’t think an email campaign fit the bill.
However, the more I learned about this service, the more I realized that an email campaign, when it’s done right, can initiate authentic connections with the right audience.
Recruiters are the right audience. In fact, a good relationship with a recruiter can make all the difference in the world. He or she will find positions that align with your vision, goals, location, and salary expectations. S/he’ll advocate for jobs on your behalf, prep you for interviews, and even help negotiate compensation.
Yes, targeted email distribution—when it includes a powerful, compelling resume and can’t-ignore-me cover letter (e-note)—can light a fire under your job search. It shouldn’t replace real, person-to-person networking, but it can quickly get your resume into the right hands.
Gain traction in your job search by distributing your resume and e-note to recruiters, headhunters, and executive search firms. The database is updated weekly, and consists of 16,000+ firms and 32,000+ retained and contingency recruiters, including Boyden, Egon Zehnder, Heidrick & Struggles, Korn Ferry, Spencer Stuart, and other top-ranked companies.
Here’s how it works: You’ll fill out a form to refine your search by industry, position, salary range, and location. Then, I’ll oversee your distribution, and provide a spreadsheet with each recruiter’s and headhunter’s name, company, and contact information so you can build relationships and stay in touch with the people who received your resume.
►Private Equity & Venture Capital Distribution
Similar to the recruiter distribution service, I also offer private equity/venture capital resume distribution, which targets 2,500+ firms and 8,500+ contacts in the U.S.
