Canon City, CO, United States, 2006/01/24 - With the continued decline in the today’s economy, many jobseekers are finding it increasingly hard to locate work both outside the home and via telecommuting - ResumeASAP.com.
They search for weeks on end, submit hundreds of resumes, and never get a bite. It’s time consuming, frustrating, and quite frankly very frightening to the jobseeker that is slowly sinking into financial disaster. But it doesn’t have to be, there is a way to greatly increase your chances of landing a job and in half the time.
According to the International Telework Association and Council (ITAC) of Washington, D.C., more than 19.6 million people reportedly worked from home as of 1999. The ITAC estimates that by 2010, there will be around 40 million people working at least part-time from their homes.
Telecommute employers report they are inundated with resumes; they may have five job openings but thousands of resumes to sort through. If a resume isn't visually pleasing, reader-friendly, sharply focused, and packed with industry keywords, it probably won't get the employer's attention, let alone an interview.
Resume Expert Jennifer Anthony of ResumeASAP (resumeasap.com), has created a website to help those who want to work from home build a strong resume that is focused on the attributes that telecommute friendly companies are looking for.
Telecommute Resumes, helps alleviate the confusion of what type of resume is best for certain work histories, what the difference is between a telecommute resume and a standard resume, and how to get your resume chosen out of thousands of others submitted.

Melody Spier states, "When I first stated looking for a work-at-home job I was submitting the same resume that I used for years when I was working outside the home. I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t getting any calls. Then someone recommended I have a resume specialist build me a professional resume that was tailored to what telecommuting companies look for. I instantly started getting calls after she created my resume. One job I landed was with a company that I had previously applied to. When I spoke to the HR person and mentioned I’d applied a few months before she said she didn’t recall seeing my resume. That’s because it blended in with all the others."
