Searching for a job can be time-consuming and frustrating. Many job hunters use online job search sites. When you have found the perfect job for you, you should remove your resume posting. Here's how to remove a resume post from Career Builder and Monster, two job search sites with heavy use.
Things You'll Need
- Computer with Internet access
Removing a Resume From the Career Builder Website
Log in to your Career Builder account by clicking "Sign In" at the upper left corner of the web page. Type in your user name and password. (If you have forgotten your password, the site will help you retrieve or reset it.)
Click "No thank you" to navigate past the advertisement page.
View your profile. Click on the word "Resumes" in dark blue letters.
Click the trashcan next to the resume file name you want to delete. The resume will vanish from your profile.
Removing a Resume From the Monster Website
Sign in to your Monster account with your user name and password. If you have forgotten your password, you can retrieve or reset your password.
Click "Skip this offer" to navigate past the advertisement page.
Hover the cursor over the words "My Profile." A drop-down menu will appear.
Find the words "My Resumes (Manage)" and click "Manage." The resume list will appear.
Click the orange button labeled "Actions" next to the resume you want to remove. Click "Delete."
Click "Delete" again when the dialog box asks whether you are sure you want to delete the resume post. The resume will be gone from your profile, and others will not be able to see it.
Tips & Warnings
- Keep a copy of your resume on your hard drive for future use.
- If you have several resumes stored on each site, make sure to choose the correct document. Resumes are removed permanently.
