You could upload it to something like drop.io and post the direct link. I suggest leaving out all personal information it you do this to protect your anonymity.

I really enjoy looking over resumes for friends. I would love to help out. I agree with b though that you should probably remove all personal info 1st.

If you are interested, send me a PM and I’ll give you my email address.

I embed a puzzle into my resume. I like puzzles. (Good) recruiters for places that I am interested in working find that sort of thing exciting and out-of-the norm. Here is the example of my (slightly outdated) resume, complete with a puzzle:

wow that’s really detailed.

thats the idea! you should be able to let people know how good you are in just a few brief pages of paper. being detailed is the only way to do it. having a few dozen people, and sifting through thousands of resumes I can say that bland, boring resumes are a dime a dozen. You should have something that ‘pops’ somehow so to speak without being tacky.

What I look for, specifically is a sense of urgency, and passion to come through the words. Those kinds of people are the best catch. Of course this will vary depending on your career field – so take that with a grain of salt!
