Present yourself in the best way possible! Refrain from pestering employers about your resume and let your credentials do the talking instead. Messaging recruiters "Sir, bro, did you get my resume?????" isn't the best idea. Instead, apply for the position using your resume and profile, and wait to hear back from the employer.[/two_third_last]
