Site Name: ResumeBoomer.com
Cost: $49.95 up-front fee at time of account creation

How It Works: You create an account and upload your resume. Resume Boomer then posts your resume on up to 60 job sites, including major sites like Monster.com, CareerBuilder.com, Job.com, and HotJobs.com, as well as specialty sites like Dice.com, MarketingJobs.com, SalesGravy.com, and BankingBoard.com depending on your area of specialty.

Like most quality resume posting sites, you can enter search parameters such as geography, position type, and salary to initiate automated alerts when employers post a new job that meets the criteria you entered.

Assessment: Overall, this can be a big time saver if you want to get your resume out on a lot of sites quickly, as they usually get your resume up on all 60+ job sites within a few business days. The bigger issue comes into play when you want to edit, revise, or update your resume. There is no mechanism for that to occur automatically. As such, they provide you with user name and login information for all the sites you are posted to. You would need to sign in to each site individually and update your resume one at a time on each site for the changes to be implemented. This could cost some serious time that might be spent doing more effective things for your job search.

One Thumb Up for helping you quickly introduce your resume to the market at large!
One Thumb Down for the excessive labor required to make any changes to your resume after the initial submission!

Complaint About Resumeboomer’s Customer Service
I filled out the online form to sign up for this service. But after taking my credit card information its site would not let me log into my account and upload my resume. I called up their customer service and after staying on hold for 15+ minutes and disconnected ‘respectfully’ several times, they promised the issue would be resolved after 48 hours. However, it’s been 9 days and I have not heard anything from their Customer Service department. And I had to request my credit card company to request reimbursement. This is certainly not quality ‘customer care.’

I would agree, Mostafa. That is not the customer care one wants to receive. Thanks for sharing your experience with our readership. This is the first I have heard of this issue happening with their service, but it is good to let our audience know about your situation. ~Stephen
