Question by Cybele: Why does my resume not even get read when I apply for jobs on LinkedIn?
I have applied for about 25 recently posted jobs on LinkedIn and received emails that about 5 of my resumes were actually read. I posted my resume in a .doc format and I have applied for jobs that have been posted within the past few days. Why is nobody even bothering to read my resume?

you might have to "pump" it up with some key words so that the computers look at it when they scan resumes

Question by LJO: Is it ok to send your resume to company employess on LinkedIn?
I'm getting very frustrated looking for an engineering job, so I'm trying to find other strategies to land my first engineering job. Human resources sucks, so I'm going ahead and sending my job applications to company employees. So my question is: is it appropriate to contact company employees on LinkedIn and send them my resume and cover letter?

Best answer:

Answer by Tom
Dear LJO,
It is appropriate if you know the contact / employee. On the other hand, if your strategy is to broadcast your resume to unknown employees at a target company, that is bad LinkedIn etiquette. You need to build your contact base and then "exploit" those contacts. Here is a link to 4 blog articles on using LinkedIn that should be helpful -- http://www.careervizibility.com/blog/category/linkedin. If you do this and the contacts become annoyed they can block you, mark you as spam, etc. I the worst instances LinkedIn may suspend your account.

Wishing you good luck with your recruiting efforts!

How do I break into marketing with a non-traditional resume?

Question by ivybear98: How do I break into marketing with a non-traditional resume?
I am a very creative person who loves science but has grown tired of typical bench work. I will be completing my PhD this spring and I'd like to break into marketing and/or advertising, with a long-term goal of working for a pharmaceutical company in their marketing department. I have an excellent science background. I have some hand-on experience in marketing, advertising, and PR for groups I volunteer with (college alumni group and sorority), but I have no formal training in marketing and my experience is rather spread out over the years. Any advice on how to break into a marketing/advertising job? I know I'll have to start at the ground and work my way up and I'm very willing to do it--how do I convince potential employers to take a chance? Thank you for all answers!
