Resume Search FAQs

Yes, you can block resumes in two ways. You can select the resume (or resumes) as part of a search results listing and choose Block Resume from the Action drop-down menu. Alternately, you can click the Block Resume link when viewing an individual resume. When you block a resume it will be noted as blocked in search results and will be omitted from Saved Search results.

If I block a resume, will that resume be deleted?

No. The resume will still remain in our resume database. If a blocked resume is found in your future resume searches, it will be noted with a blocked icon to save you from selecting and viewing the resume again. Also, blocked resumes are not included in your Saved Search email results.

Can I un-block a resume?

Yes. If a blocked resume is returned in your search results, you can click the Un-block link to change the resume’s status.

How many resumes can I block?
