How do I send my resume to an employer?

We want to make job searching as easy as possible for you, so we offer several ways to directly send a resume to an employer.

Applying with your own resume file

We understand you likely took some time crafting your resume, so if you would like to apply to jobs using your own original resume file, you may do so by clicking on "Apply with a different resume" whenever an apply window pops up.

In cases where you are redirected to the employer’s site, you may upload it there.

Applying with your Indeed resume

If a job has an “Apply Now” button, then you can simply click the button and apply with your Indeed resume.  If the job has a "Apply on Company Site" button, it will take you directly to the employer’s site, where you can upload your resume file.

More about the Indeed Resume feature

Indeed Resume is a feature we offer but it is not required to apply to jobs on our site. If you choose to have an Indeed Resume, however, employers can search for your resume if it is set to public.

TIP: Small changes can make a huge difference, and nothing is more powerful than the words you choose to include on your resume. We’ve highlighted some essential words in our article about Words to Avoid and Include on a Resume.
