How to Distribute Your Resume the Right Way

ob seekers who hope to be recruited by hiring managers often feel that their job is complete once they have created their resume “masterpiece”. But nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, a job seeker’s work is just getting started once the resume is complete. The next move is to figure out how to distribute the document for others to see. Here are five ways to do it in a way that will get it noticed:

Niche Job Boards

A great way to get your resume in front of the right eyes is by posting it on niche job boards. Niche job boards are different from well-known, generic job boards because they cater to specific fields and allow recruiters and job seekers alike to meet in a more intimate setting.


LinkedIn is an amazing—and often overlooked—resource for job seekers. Not only can you build a resume or post yours in its current state on the site, but you can also network with former and current associates, meet new professionals, and even garner professional recommendations. The best part is that recruiters spend hours scouring pages for job seekers to recruit. And you could be the next one!


Networking has always been a singular and unmatched option for getting your resume into the hands of the right decision makers in a particular company. Whether you’re making connections at business meetings, social functions, family gatherings, or right over the Internet, networking is a critical tool for distributing your resume to the influential people.

Job Fairs

If you have yet to visit a job fair, you are truly missing out. This is the ultimate place to distribute your resume because companies send their recruiters to them in order to find talent—and actually collect resumes! Depending on how great your resume and small talk are, you may even score an on-the-spot interview. So be sure to visit plenty of job fairs—and be on top of your game each time.


Twitter is the unlikely place to distribute your resume because you can only share 140 characters at a time. But job seekers have found creative ways to do so with the use of mini-URLs, brief descriptions of their qualifications, and clever hashtags like #needajob or #lookingforwork.

One mistake job seekers often make is resorting to posting their resumes on a generic job board, just hoping someone will find it. Unfortunately, outside of outright applying for a job that has been posted, it requires more creativity and diligence than that to get your resume noticed. Fortunately, you now have the tools to get yours in front of the right eyes!
