Don’t overexpose your résumé, recruiter warns

Job hunters and the unemployed should resist the temptation to overexpose their resume, despite increasing unemployment level, according to a leading recruiter.

LINK Recruitment Practice Leader Jon Barton said job seekers should avoid shopping their resumes around, as it can cause overexposure and embarrassing double-ups. Barton has instead urged job seekers to focus on targeting specific employers, building a relationship with a trusted recruiter, and to consider using a professional resume writer.

Barton has also advised employers to think seriously about taking advantage of the number of skilled job seekers out in the market.

“As soon as the market turns, businesses will need to look towards employing staff to meet increased work demands. Now is a great time for employers to assess the needs of their workplace and find gaps, so they can up-skill and position their business favourably for when the economy booms again.”
