Please mention that you saw this job posting on the SWMarketing Prof Guild . That will set you out from the crowd and also remind the job poster that the SW ProfGuilds are a great place to find qualified software, internet, networking, and telecommunications professionals.
You MUST include a cover email -- do NOT send an empty email with an attached resume. Be sure to include the job title and location in your subject line so that the recruiter will know to open your email.
Please do not forward to colleagues but instead ask them to join the appropriate SW ProfGuild
No re-posting. All jobs posted to any of the SW ProfGuilds are at the request of the job poster. We never post jobs without a direct request from the job poster. SW ProfGuilds believes it is the right of the job poster to decide where to post his/her job and we ask that you also honor this guideline.
Create your ResumeBlog�
Plowing through hundreds of resumes is tough on our job posters, even though all of us are above average. To enable the best candidates to stand out, we are encouraging every job poster to search the ProfGuilds member database first. What member database? Our ResumeBlogs.
Don't have one? Create your own ResumeBlog in less than 15 minutes at www.resumeblog.com . Most jobs are not filled by the avalanche of resumes in response to a job posting, but rather by the job poster finding the perfect candidate, often using Google as their main search tool. But in order to be found, you have to have a web presence that can be searched e.g. your own ResumeBlog.
Don't be googled over due to "Absence of Presence" -- get yourself into the ResumeBlog database and help the recruiters find you!
