Resume Zapper - Review Summary:
In summary, career counselors will tell you that the lion's
share of job opportunities never hit the radar. They're handled
quietly and out of sight by third-party recruiters who find
qualified candidates and place them in those jobs. If you have
3+ years of work experience and want to be in the running,
you need your resume in the hands of recruiters. Even if you're
a recent graduate, recruiters may be
interested--especially if you have a technology major or
post-graduate degree (i.e. an MBA).

one thing and they do it extremely well--getting your resume
in the hands of recruiters. For the price of dinner out, you
