How Does It Work?
Fill out an online form to provide contact information and payment processing, then follow the instructions for
uploading your resume. You'll be given the option to select recruiters specializing in 3 different job categories
or industries and up to 4 different geographical areas.
Industry selections range from Accounting & Auditing (4,099 recruiters) to Waste Management (975 recruiters)
and everything in between. By the way, you can choose additional categories/industries to increase exposure to your
resume. It's $10.00 for an 3 additional industries.
All resumes will be emailed to your selected recruiters usually within one business day of account set-up and
payment processing. You'll receive a confirmation of such. Want to be able to follow up with the recruiters your
resume is sent to? They'll provide you with a list of the recruiters your resume was e-mailed to for $19 extra.
If there is interest or a placement fit, the recruiter gets in touch with you directly.
You target your industry. The company has compiled a respectable number of
industry/discipline selections represented by member recruiters. And they show you those disciplines up
- Filter by geography. You pick the state or states that you want saturated. They'll filter out
everything but your selections. Live in Florida,,, or want to live in Florida? They'll email your
resume to those recruiters who make placements in the Sunshine State.
- Confidentiality. Select their confidentiality feature, and your name and contact information will be
kept off the resume--and replaced by a dedicated email box at their location that will forward correspondence
to you. No charge.
- Their guarantee: If you haven't received the kind of response you were looking for, they'll let you
re-blast your resume at no charge 30 days after your initial order.
- Optional contact list of all recruiters who received your resume.
- Nothing to report at this time.
Resume Arrow Review - Summary
The first thing to keep in mind is that distributing your resume en masse is an odds game--and the odds
can be pretty small. It largely depends on whether your qualifications match an active job order being worked
by a recruiter on the day your resume plops on his desk. That said, Resume Arrow is focused on only one thing and
they do it well--getting your resume in the hands of those recruiters. The company appears
to offer a straightforward service at a reasonable price. The BBB offers some comfort to prospective
customers, giving the company their highest score--an A+.
Keeping in mind the nature of the odds game, I have no problem recommending...
Best of luck,
David Alan Carter
