790,000 RESUMES – AND YOU THINK YOURS WILL BE SEEN?

Federal rules requiring many companies to keep job applicant data for a year or more are creating severe hassles for employers inundated with online resumes.

"It's a huge issue for companies, and it's a hot button," says Barbara Murphy, a spokeswoman at Boeing, which received 790,000 resumes last year.

But critics say the rules set up in the 1970s don't work in the Internet age, because it's difficult to know the race of faceless online applicants and keeping resumes doesn’t make good sense.

Just be aware that the passive system of sending out resumes via email or fax has never worked well as part of a professional job search. It’s an easy way to stay busy and not get results.
