Notes:

I have read warnings about circulating your resume.

Suggestions include:

bullet

Always keep control of your resume.

bullet

Never let dubious operators give your resume wide circulation, it may exclude you from many potential employers. (Some operators widely circulate resumes. They may then demand a finders fee from your new employer claiming your hiring was a result of their paper circulation. Many employers won't hire people whose resumes have been circulated like this.)

bullet

Online resume databases should be OK. (Wide distribution, no fee.)

Statistics:

bullet

Typically 33 percent of a company's hiring budget is now spent on Internet career services. (Forrester Research, M. Berger, "Jobs Supermarket", Upside, November 2000: 224)

bullet

Cisco Systems claims a 39 percent reduction of cost-per-hire expenses and 60 percent reduction in time spent recruiting, by using the Internet. (Cisco advertisement, The Wall Street Journal, 19 October 2000: B13.)

bullet

A company pays 25 percent more to recruit a new technical employee than it does to pay an existing employee's salary. (A.K. Smith, "Charting Your Own Course", U.S. News and World Report, ^ November 2000: 58.)
