Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) October 12, 2006
Matthew Saunders, the founder of JobsByFax(http://www.jobsbyfax.com), has a new solution for job hunters that gets the attention of potential employers without ever leaving their desktop, and it's not e-mail. He created FaxMyResumeFree(http://www.faxmyresumefree.com) as a fast, free and effective strategy that job hunters can use to get noticed when applying for a job listing. Typically job hunters email or snail mail their resumes in response to an employment ad and then get "batched" into a pile of resumes. Standing out and getting noticed in the pile is a matter of luck. Many resumes never even get opened.
FaxMyResumeFree(http://www.faxmyresumefree.com) solves the problem of getting noticed. It gives the job hunter a competitive edge because they are not being piled into a large group of emails or mail. Instead, the resume is faxed and addressed to the correct party. Since it is a fax, the resume and cover letter are delivered open. This means half the battle in getting noticed is already won. The other half of the battle is in the job hunter's hands. A well written cover letter, resume, credentials and job history all play an important role.
FaxMyResumeFree(http://www.faxmyresumefree.com) is easy to use. A job seeker uploads a resume and cover letter to the website and inputs the fax number and recipient's name. The service is entirely free. The job seeker can then send the fax to up to ten people at one time and it only takes minutes to distribute by utilizing the dozens of fax lines available.
"E-mails are too easy to delete and usually the decision maker never even knows that you exist," explains Saunders. "The problem is that you never get past the gate keeper. FaxMyResumeFree(http://www.faxmyresumefree.com) and our original service, JobsByFax(http://www.jobsbyfax.com) gives you an advantage. Somebody at that company has to do something with that fax other than hitting the delete button on their computer and many times the fax ends up in the hands of a senior decision maker. This is a huge advantage."
FaxMyResumeFree(http://www.faxmyresumefree.com) utilizes top-of-the-line fax computers to provide an efficient, top quality fax to each recipient. The sender can even check the status of the fax by logging onto the website. Only resumes and cover letters can be faxed. No other type of material is permitted and advertising is strictly prohibited.
"My job is to empower job hunters with cost effective tools to stand out and get noticed by an employer," adds Saunders. "It's a very competitive job market right now. The more ways you market yourself, the quicker you'll find the right job."
Matt Mladenka, a job seeker from Dallas, Texas, used both JobsByFax(http://www.jobsbyfax.com) and FaxMyResumeFree(http://www.faxmyresumefree.com) and agrees. "I've been looking for a quality job for a year. After I switched my personal marketing strategy from responding to online job ads by e-mail to aggressively faxing my resume to targeted companies, I was immediately inundated with phone calls and many promising opportunities."
