Resumes and Profiles

    1. You can store your resume in our database and allow potential employers to search for your resume and profile. This means that employers can actively seek you out and contact you when they are interested in your skills. This is the default setting when you create your online resume and profile.
    2. You can mark your resume and profile as PRIVATE. Doing this removes your contact information from the resume and profile. You can still send your resume to potential employers (you decide if you want contact information to be included) and potential employers can still search for you. Your contact information is simply protected until you decide to reveal it.
    3. You can mark your resume and profile as HIDDEN. This means that potential employers cannot search for your resume or profile. You can still send your resume to employers and nominate yourself for positions; employers simply cannot look for you.
    4. Our most secure option allows you to mark your resume and profile both HIDDEN and PRIVATE. In this scenario, potential employers cannot search for your resume or profile, and when you submit a resume to a potential employer, you control the amount of contact information sent to the employer.
