Suggestions when applying for jobs online

When you sign up for job sites never tick the box that shows "Allow recruiters to search the CV." If you tick the box, your resume becomes so catchy that recruiter can see it and within a few days iit becomes longstanding. The sites are having these boxes because they charge money from recruiters for sending resumes, it is a money making process for them. There is no benefit for you it will only decrease your chances of getting a job.

If you are unable to find a job that matches your resume then change your resume that fits with the job accurately. It is time consuming process.

When you are applying for jobs online, choose the jobs which fit your resume exactly. Don't apply for jobs in quantity because your resume becomes spam. Most recruiters will mark your resume “irrelevant" if you apply for too many jobs.

Changing CV format once a week. Select a different resume or rewrite your resume. This method always works. Such a good point about this is that each recruiter likes to see a resume as fresh look, the way your resume looks, has a big impact. But do not change your resume every day. This method is for people who do not get any response back.
