How to consider which Resume database to send your Resume to avoid Resume risks like Identity theft, cyber stalking or Resume misuse

You should consider which Resume database you are sending a Resume and when you fill out a Resume databases web based entry form with your Resume data

Resume risks

  • Who is the Resume database – a serious player

Research the Resume databases for reviews, number of jobs, owners, etc. Fake Resume databases watch for news of company layoffs and often use that to look for potential victims finding names on websites or using company emails.

  • Who is the company having the job

See our example of a scam as is might be the best way to tell you about job scams

  • What information are requested by the Resume database

A Resume database would never ask for the following until very late if ever – and you should consider carefully before you hand over this information (and never give a copy)

  • Social security number or central register personal number or similar
  • Password number
  • Picture
  • Mothers Maiden name

and remember never give any money to a Resume database (until you are employed).

  • How are they handling my Resume data
  • What can the use my Resume data for
  • How long time can the keep my data

All of these questions should be possible for you to answer if you look at the Resume databases website for their privacy policies and their terms and conditions. Normally a Resume database would also describe the application and test process.

  • How can I ensure they have updated data over time / always ?
