Lisa,

The ideas about how to improve your resume were great.  I have been told, however that HR recruiters RARELY pick people from the website.  Only when they don't have any candidates recommended by someone and they are desperate.  I was flabbergasted when I heard this! The manager I interviewed (from one of those rare occassions) said she didn't even know who her recruiter is or where the person was located.  Another boss told me that they can never get enough candidates for jobs.  Seems like MS ought to do a better job of connecting hiring managers with recruiters and actually USE the website applicants. There are a lot of us good ones out there.
