Is it necessary to change a word in your monster.com resume every so
often to make the resume more visible?

Can somebody tell how these are presented to potential employers such
that such a technique might work.

Cheers,

Sean

How many times per week does your resume get viewed on each job board,
and
how many contacts do you get per week on each job board?

On monster.com, I would have about 30 hits the first day after I revised
my
resume. (Often just changing a single word would start the hits rolling

again).

Over the last 10 weeks, I had about 15 contacts and 5 interviews due to
a
combination of monster.com and dice.com. I accepted an offer last
Wednesday
(and kind of started today, except I don't have access to the company
intranet and email yet). On Thursday and Friday, I had 3 more contacts
and
offers for interviews.

When it rains it pours.
