How to Post a Resume
Click “Post Resumes” on the homepage. Give you resume a title. You may want to include your last
name, job skills, or profession in the title. Be descriptive, but brief.
You can upload an existing resume or paste your resume in the box provided. To upload an existing
resume, click Browse, find your document on the computer, and click open. If you upload a resume,
make sure it is a word document with simple formatting (no tables or pictures) and standard text (Arial
or Times New Roman). To paste an existing resume, highlight all text, right click, and choose copy (or
click ctrl C). Right click in the box provided, and click paste (ctrl V). After you do this, click Continue.
Choose public as your privacy option (the green circle next to the word Public) if you want employers to
be able to search for your resume. Choose your total years of experience. Select a job category and the
years of experience for that category (you can add more than one job category). Under Work History,
click on each job individually to make sure you have a job title, company name, job type, start and end
date. You can also click “add another job” to add more job experiences to your resume. Under
Education, add your school name, major, degree, and graduate date. You can add more schools by
clicking “Add another.” In the box called Accreditations and Certifications, type any extra accreditations
or certifications you have. Click continue.
On the next page, fill in the information for Recent Compensation and Additional Skills and
Qualifications. Do not forget to fill in the information under Desired Position and Relocation
Information.
Review your resume and click Post Resume. Career builder will show job recommendations based on
your resume.
Search for Jobs
You can search for jobs by clicking “Find Jobs.” You can fill in the information on the page, such as
keyword, location, industries, job categories, and salary range, to search for a job. Under employment
type, a green checkmark means you want that kind of job, so be sure you un-check any you don’t want
by clicking on the green arrow. Then click “Find Jobs.”
You can also choose to search by location or job type. To search by location, find your state and city on
the list. After you click it, jobs in that area will appear. You can then narrow the jobs by entering
keywords or selecting narrower categories or companies. To search by job type, click on the job type
you are interested in (ex: accounting jobs). You can narrow this search by category, company, or
location.
