How to Send a Resume to Recruiters for Free


Job recruiters help employers find the appropriate candidates to fill a variety of positions. There are various types of recruiters. Internal recruiters are employees of the employer, usually as part of the human resource department. External recruiters are not employees of the employer; they receive compensation either as contingency or retained recruiters. A contingency recruiter receives commission for every position they fill, while a retained recruiter receives pay for their recruiting efforts. Many of these recruiters will help job seekers, but employers---not the job seeker---pay them.

Things You'll Need

  • Your resume
  • Find recruiters in your area. Ask your friends or family if they know of any good job recruiters. It's best to always get a second opinion. Get the name of address of the recruiter so you can mail or hand them your resume.

  • Use websites such as Job Hunt or Recruiters Online. They have special services for job seekers. You may be able to submit or add your resume to their website.

  • Try job search websites such as Career Builder or Monster. Register and submit your resume. With these websites, you'll open yourself to more job opportunities. Career Builder and Monster may even contact you about career fairs within your area.

  • Research companies you're interested in. See if they have a human resource or job recruiters department. Contact them about sending your resume.
