Actually, I'm wondering if the exposure from a site like ResumeRabbit
could be worse than valueless. Could it actually create an antagonistic
relationship between you and a company or other organization that gets
annoyed because you sent them a resume when you obviously weren't suited
for the job?

Heard of it. Tried it. Waste of money. They spam your resume to a
gazillion job boards, many of which are regional and Not Located Where
You Live, or specialized and Not Related To What You Do.

I paid for their service a few years back, at a time when I was looking
for steady consulting work and money was kinda short, and it generated
zero leads. The exposure was valueless.

Post to Monster and Dice, and to any regionally-appropriate boards in
your area, and then get out there and beat the bushes and network.
Getting a job from a job board posting should be a backup or auxiliary
plan, not the primary plan.
