In addition to providing a job search engine, Indeed.com offers a resume posting service. Job seekers can post their resume on Indeed and hiring managers and recruiters can search Indeed Resume by keyword and location to find candidates for employment.

Indeed Resume for Job Seekers

Indeed Resume users can create a resume from scratch or upload an existing resume in any of dozens of common formats including Word, PDF, RTF, TXT, and HTML.

To upload your resume, you will need to register to create an account, or you can login with your Facebook account. Here are step-by-step instructions for posting your resume on Indeed.com.

Online Resumes

Once you have uploaded your resume you will get a personalized resume URL like indeed.com/me/YourName. Your resume can be shared with anyone via a public URL or hidden for private use. Keeping your resume hidden is a good idea if you are currently employed and you don't want to advertise the fact that you are job searching.

If you're unemployed or otherwise want to advertise your job search and you make your resume public, visitors to your public resume page can download the resume as a PDF or email you through a secure contact form.

Apply for Jobs on Indeed

Indeed Resume enables 1-click apply to select jobs on Indeed.com, and offers job seekers privacy protection. Initial contact with an employer is brokered by Indeed and personal contact information (phone number, email, and address) remains private until you opt to share it.

Indeed Resume for Employers

For employers and recruiters, Indeed Resume provides instant access to resumes from millions of qualified candidates. Indeed Resume is available at http://www.indeed.com/resume.

Indeed Resume, unlike subscription-based resume databases, is an open search engine. Searching for resumes is free and unrestricted and does not require an account.

Employers can search by keyword and location to get a list of resumes that meet the search criteria. When the list is generated, you can review it and highlight the candidate you are interested in. You'll see a preview of the resume. Click to view the full resume. Then you'll have the option to download the resume and/or contact the job seeker.
