ResumeDirector.com service adds capabilities exclusively for professionals earning $100,000 and above

NEW YORK, NY, February 3, 2003 – As companies have become more cautious about the senior executives they hire and the economic downturn continues, an increasing number of senior managers looking for new jobs have been turning to innovative services to get an edge in their job search. In response to this trend, ResumeDirector.com has added seven new executive-only job board sites to its resume distribution service.

With ResumeDirector.com, job seekers can enter their resume once and have it posted instantly on over 90 job board sites. Since it can take up to 45 minutes or longer to fill out the forms required to post a resume on many job boards, the ResumeDirector.com service can save a job seeker over 60 hours of data entry time and allow them to be seen by recruiters more quickly. Prior to the addition of the seven new executive-only job boards, ResumeDirector was already posting to many sites executive recruiters search for senior-level employees such as Monster.com, CareerJournal.com, CareerBuilder, HotJobs.com and others. The seven new sites available only to executives earning $100,000 per year or more are: SixFigureJobs.com; Management Recruiters International’s BrilliantPeople.com; Heidrick & Struggles’ LeadersOnline.com; ExecSearches.com; ChiefMonster.com; executive recruiter Spencer Stuart’s resume bank; and MBAGlobalNet.com.

Scott Brown, president of ResumeDirector, said, “We have been noticing a trend of more and more senior executives such as CFOs, Presidents, VPs, and other senior managers taking advantage of our service in recent months. We felt the addition of these sites to our distribution would allow us to provide increased value to our customers.”

The ResumeDirector service is available for a flat fee of $59.95. Job seekers sign up for the service, enter their resume, and select the job boards they want to have their resume posted on. The system then instantly posts the user’s resume to the desired job boards. Most job sites make the professional’s resume available to recruiters immediately; while some such as SixFigureJobs review the resume to make sure it is relevant to the executive recruiters using their service before making it available.

Although ResumeDirector does not have any formal business relationship with most of the job boards it posts resumes to, it is able to assure accuracy through a proprietary web spider technology which emulates a human user browsing a web site. The system actually uses the data provided by the job seeker to fill out the job board’s forms on their web site just like a human being would. This allows it to take advantage of the data entry validation features built in to the job board sites and make sure the resumes are posted correctly.
