Protect Your Identity With:
Minimizing Contact Information
This step will help you to safely identify and be safe from your employer the fact that you are looking for a new job (if you do). Your work or home number, address, or work email refers to personal information that should be replaced with your personal cell phone number and email.
Transforming Employment History
The next step is going to be your employment history. The main goal you must pursue is to present this information in a way your current employer won’t figure out that this resume is yours. For this purpose, you should, obviously, hide the name of your company and your current employer. Replace it with general information, like:
‘Johnson & Stevenson, Inc changes into a software development company. Clarifying the field in which your company specifies not giving its accurate title or name is easy. And always remember to be thankful during your job search.
Removing Key Words
Furthermore, don’t forget to replace original information related to, particularly your company. Keywords like state or federal license number, trademark, service mark, and patent should be promptly removed from your resume.
Don’t think that then your document will seem to be plain and uncompetitive. Your powerful education history and a history of your previous jobs as well as skills section will do the trick.
Now, when you make sure that your current employer won’t find out about your new job search, it’s time to make your email and resume read. Here are a couple of useful tips:
- In real life, people are judged by their appearance at first. But on Internet, your email address and subject line tend to make the very first impression and say a lot about your competency. Of course, [email protected] or [email protected] can impress your potential recruiter but not in the way it should. You won’t fail if you use your first and last name.
- Still, it would be better if you relate your email address to the position you are applying for. If your potential employer gets an email from [email protected], he will promptly get its purpose. If this name is already taken, add your zip code, area code, town, and year of birth (not that good, though). Such emails are not only professional but also useful. What is more, such professional-oriented names help to protect your identity.
- Getting dozens of junk mail daily, your potential recruiter will be thankful if you, the one with flawless email, will provide a clear subject line. Here you should mention a position you are applying for, a source where you’ve found this ad, and brief IMPORTANT information about your previous job, for instance.
- As both your subject line and email itself shouldn’t be long, use abbreviations.
Now, you finished writing your resume and produced a flawless document. The next step is looking for a job on the Internet. Get a couple of tips that will help to make your job search effective.
