Comments11/06/2017 #14 Tanja Pirnat#13 I think you didn't understand what I was trying to say. I am just finishing my book about this topic, I will let you know once it's published and I invite you to read it. In the book I describe how to get a job you want, much more than just a simple CV preparation. An excellent CV will not guarantee a job if you are a disaster at the interview. It is always nice to hear the opinion of HR/ recruiting expert with experience and also read scientific researches and investigations. On the other hand it is also good to hear an advice from a person who is "one the other side", a job seeker who actually has to search for a job and go for an interview. I have changed 26 jobs in 12 years and I had over 100 interviews in 6 countries. I think I have "something" to share. I am not a recruiter and I respect you especially because I know how important decisions you have to take, like the example you wrote.10/06/2017 #8 Brian McKenzie#6 It's a Bitch Move. ie I care more about your tone than your content, evidence, facts, precedence, logic or analytical trajectories.

Comments10/06/2016 #5 SHERIEF RAZZAQUEG'day Dean,
I'm anti-[resume on profile].
You just can't control what people can do with it (including modifying it).
This is less prevalent with your LinkedIn Profile because, even if someone saves it as a PDF, it will always look like a webpage.
You also have to re-upload your attachment every time you edit your master file.
The most obvious con though, is having intrusive colleagues & managers misunderstanding your motives.
Depending on your privacy settings, you could also be accessible to people pursuing their own motives, from being added to unwanted mailing lists to being approached for jobs you're simply not interested in.
If you are going to attach it (pdf only; never *.txt or *.doc file!), make sure it builds on and complements your LinkedIn presence.
Your resume delivers little benefit if it merely regurgitates the profile.
For example, there's a clear distinction between my resume and LinkedIn profile.
My LinkedIn profile is exuberant. I use it to show off and entertain.
You'll never go wrong quoting comedians like Jackie Mason or Dennis Miller.
My resume is a scalpel cutting to the chase. Every word has earnt its place.
It's not written with a [Deadpool meets Liam Neeson] tone like I have on LinkedIn.
The Pro here is that, if you are in the market, you more accessible to any opportunity.10/06/2016 #4 Phil FriedmanGood points, Sherief. To which I would add, replace your personal email address with a cut-out address that is set to automatically forwards emails to your mail email address. In my case, I use my consulting business email address, because it is plastered all over the Internet anyway, and has been for years. But if you don't have a separate business (your business, not your employer's) email address, create a cut-out gMail account. As well expunge your telephone number, unless like me you use your business number and it happens to already be plastered all over the Internet. Never use your personal or home telephone number. Cheers!
