Today there has got to be more resumes being sent out like no other time in history. Email servers across the country are working over time, but how many of those resumes actually get to where they needed to go? I literally receive about 100 plus resumes a day and what is interesting to me is out of 100 only 2 people will follow up with me for a response. Are people just blanketing their resume without a plan to any email address that they come across?
It is important to follow through with your transmissions but the problem is you don’t even know if it was received. MyJobCAST.com is a tool that will not only tell you if your resume was received but if it was looked at.
I would have to say that persistence is something that more and more people lack. I don’t want to get into the reasons why that is, but one should know if his or her resume was received and if so what the next step is.
