Useful Links on Your Resume



Give the employer an immediate look at you, your qualifications, recommendations, samples of your work, and more by listing URLs (online addresses) that support your job search. For instance, in addition to putting your name, address, and phone number in your resume heading, you could also include addresses to your website, your LinkedIn (or another social network) profile, and/or your blog. If your list is so long it makes your heading look cluttered, create a Where to Find Me section near the end of your resume, in which you list these relevant URLs.

Caution: Be sure all URLs in your resume support your job objective, or at least don't do any harm to your job search.

Linkedin was just added to the About.com top 10 employment site list with 2 other other sites but linkedin is the only social network:

www.linkedin.com (networking)
www.indeed.com (aggregated lists)
www.realmatch.com (matches you to jobs)

Top 10 employment site list here:

Thank for the "Where to find me" suggestion. I have most of mind in the header but I like the "where to find me". I think I will try that.
