Proceed with Caution Online

If you're currently posting your resume on job search websites, be careful about putting too much detailed information on your e-resume. Strike a balance between marketing yourself and maintaining your privacy. NEVER put age, social secuirty number, or home street adress on your e-resume. Instead of listing the specific companies you've worked for, you could instead create a description of the company. If you've worked for Geico in the past, for example, you could write "Fastest Growing Auto Insurer in US" instead of listing the actual company name.

Be sure to ONLY post your electronic resume on password-protected sites. You want to ensure that only legitimate employers have access to your resume.
