Hi all!

We are receiving more and more resumes that are not in the
proper format.  Since many of you only have newsgroup feeds and
cannot directly access our gopher or www server, here is the resume
posting format for MedSearch America.

Remember that you can reach MedSearch America's gopher by typing -
gopher gopher.medsearch.com 9001
---------------------------------
at your internet prompt if you have gopher services.

Here's our instructions for how to prepare and post your resume on 
MedSearch America directly with any Internet Mail access:


How to Prepare and Post your Resume
-----------------------------------

   Please print or copy this document and follow the directions 
   carefully. This NEW format will help us with faster and more accurate 
   processing, and will make it easier for employers to find your resume.
   
** YOUR RESUME WILL APPEAR IN THE MEDSEARCH AMERICA PUBLIC ACCESS DATABASE **
    PLEASE CHECK YOUR RESUME ONLINE 48 HOURS AFTER SENDING TO MAKE SURE
     IT HAS BEEN PROPERLY CODED AND OTHERWISE APPEARS AS YOU INTENDED.  


               CONTACT AND JOB PREFERENCE INFORMATION
               ------------------------------------ 
1) The information below should APPEAR BEFORE YOUR RESUME or any
    other information and ONLY on the TOP LEFT of your first page. 
    Your name, address, phone, mail info should NOT appear 
    anywhere else including within your resume.  

2) Each line of text should NOT EXCEED 75 characters and spaces across
    for your resume to display properly.

3) Your Contact Information (if properly submitted) will not be displayed 
    in the Public-Access Database.  Your identity will be available to any
    interested Employers/ Recruiters even if they are not members of MSA.

4) Do not draw any text boxes around these entries or make any other 
   formatting that would interfere with the computer properly reading
   your contact and job preference information.

   At the TOP LEFT SIDE of your page write the information that appears
   IN CAPS below, and write your responses to each item starting with
   one space after the colon.  (See the example that follows)

NAME: (First, Last, Middle Initial) 
ADDRESS: 
2ND LINE: (if needed)
CITY, STATE ZIP: 
COUNTRY: (blank if USA)
PHONE: (Where you prefer to be reached for employment inquiries) 
E-MAIL ADDRESS: 
<Blank Line>

PRIMARY JOB LOCATION: (City, State abbr.) 
     (usually the City and State that you now live and seek immediate
      employment in.)

RELOCATION CITY: (City, State abbr.)
     (Separate multiple City State entries with a semi-colon ";")
     (DO NOT include ANY other words than the City and State) 
     (example: Chicago, IL; Boston, MA; Dallas, TX)

RELOCATION REGION: (New England; Mid Atlantic; South; Midwest;
     Rockies; Southwest; Pacific/Pacific Coast; Any):

RELOCATION COUNTRY: (If Non-US only)

DESIRED WORK STATUS: (Permanent, Temporary, Contract, Internship,
      Volunteer, or Consulting)

         your resume)

                      EXAMPLE:
                      --------

==================================================================
  

  1) Remember that the text SHOULD NOT EXCEED 75 characters across 
      (characters and spaces), or it will not display as you intend.   

  2) DO NOT INCLUDE PERSONAL OR CONTACT INFORMATION in the 
     body of your resume.  Social Security or other Identification
     numbers should never appear in a public access area.  
     Since we do not know if this information was unintentionally 
     included in the public database, we will exclude those resumes 
     that have personal information when we find them.

  3) FOR ADDITIONAL PRIVACY, you may want to consider not naming past 
     employers or providing references.  The interested employer will 
     request this information after you are contacted. 

     Hint: View your resume in Notepad or Dos Editor to check how it 
     will display online.

     Leave at least 2 blank lines between RESUME: and the body of your
     resume.


   Sending Your Resume by E-Mail 
   - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
                    **IMPORTANT** 
   MAKE SURE YOU READ AND AGREE TO THE MSA LIMITATION AND
   DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY BEFORE SENDING YOUR RESUME.
   
   The e-mail "SUBJECT" line will be your RESUME TITLE. 
   This will be the sentence that the employer first sees when 
   searching resumes.  Use the resume title to sell yourself or 
   give a summary (in 45 letters and spaces) like:
           
          "RN/8 yrs Exp/East Coast/200+ bed hosp" or 
          "M.I.S. Director, 5 yrs, Major HMO, San Fran"

      --------------------------------------------
      E-MAIL YOUR RESUME TO: resume at medsearch.com 
      --------------------------------------------                        

   DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR RESUME AS AN E-MAIL ATTACHMENT
   but as the message itself.
  
   
   Thanks for your interest.
