your resume online as part of America's Talent Bank, creating and saving customized

position or if you want to target your resume to the needs of a particular employer, you
can create and store different versions of your resume. You also have the option of
keeping your resume or personal information confidential. You can hide your entire
resume from employers, hide your contact information and current/last employer, hide
just your contact information, or make your resume viewable for all employers to see.

message boards for networking and expert advice. Career Center offers helpful content
targeted for various industries and career experience levels.
TIP! Copy and paste from your text resume to the online resume submission form to save
time and avoid typos. Submitting a resume and continuing to search the job bank (or set
up a job agent) to apply for positions of interest will maximize your chances of success
since employers and recruiters have varied levels of access to the database.
