First it’s good to get an e mail / call for better work and pay. It’s good to be on Job Site – But you are not sure if your employer will find out or not? Unwanted Spams / Calls? Can I delete? How a recruiters searches and sees / uses the resume? What happens after 356 days? So Pros / Cons if you post resume on a Job Board?

The Internet, has made a lot of things in a human being's life easier. Finding a job is one of them. Previously, hunting for a job meant visiting a company personally and submitting your resume or applying through a friend/acquaintance. The other way was to respond to newspaper ads. Practically, this technique was very time consuming and with very less results as the candidate could reach out to a handful of employers.

To reach out to innumerable employers across the world, today's job seekers uses Internet to seek job and more and more Internet would be the de-facto place to find job. All are the same, job portals, social sites, peer-to-peer or whatever that jargon will be – if you are on Internet you will get ‘calls’. If you are employee our suggestion is do upload your resume as you never know what great opportunity you will miss. But just put your First Name, e mail id and your skills – THAT’S ALL – DO NOT PUT – Home Address, Mobile number, Birthday, Passport number, references, etc – again just put First Name, e mail id and your skills

 

Pro's
Con's
Job-seekers can just log on to view thousands of job openings across the world, without going anywhere (the good old newspaper has only hundreds of openings that come once a week.) All job postings do not have a clear information of the requirement, resulting in candidate applying for a wrong job or maybe even ignoring it.
They can look for relevant jobs based on domain, experience, location, type, skills and a lot more. Certain job boards spam the candidate's mail box with unwanted job requirements. A candidate may start ignoring the job board's mails after sometime as a result.
You can save and edit different versions of their resumes by simply filling in the questions and then apply for any job with a single click without the need for posting the resume again. Candidate gets calls from recruiters, at times even for unwanted positions.
Candidates can view the profile of any company in the job site that has details posted.   Candidate's personal information like mobile cell number, email-id, address, personal information etc. are shared with  other businesses for cold calling. e.g. Insurance agents, investment agents, etc.
Candidates can  view all jobs by a specific employer. Candidate's experience details can be used for making sales calls to the company by retrieving the company name  and location.
Candidates can view list of all applications – jobs applied for.  If a candidate puts his official email-id in his resume, it can be used to reach the other employees of the same firm.
Candidates can email a specific job to a friend.  By using the candidate's project details, recruitment firms can prepare a fake resume and apply it to the company for doing reverse marketing.
Candidates can print a specific job details.  Personal details of a candidate like Passport no., Social Security number, etc can be misused resulting in the candidate's name getting involved into some legal matter.
At a small price (Internet usage) candidates can apply for various jobs. They need not buy lots of newspapers or travel to a lot of places for job hunting. Confidential information such as new technologies or marketing strategies is at stake when a candidates posts his resume online, as it could be picked up other companies for misuse.
Searching for a job on the Internet is less time consuming as compared to the traditional method.  If a candidate's resume is located by representatives of his/her company on a job board, it could jeopardize his/her career prospects. 
As new IT job vacancies are advertised on the site, the recruiters  can keep the candidate informed by email of any new opportunity that matches his/her requirements. It is far easier for a recruiter to rule a candidate out based on specific criteria such as experience, qualifications, and knowledge base rather than the more subjective criteria such as personal attributes/characteristics, strengths or personality.
Job boards show the candidate only the relevant job listings  based on his/ her search criteria. Some candidates give the names and contact details of their references. This information can be misused for sales calls, etc.
Job Boards have resume creating resources that help a candidate enhance his/her resume and also help to write a good cover letter. Candidates may get mails/calls from people offering them a job that is a scam, resulting in the candidate losing money and worst may end up involved in a legal case.
Candidate is at peace with the thought that he has tried his best to reach out to the maximum companies across the globe. Candidate may receive mails which contain viruses/worms resulting in some harm to his/her PC.
Various job boards provide advice/information/guidance on one's career which can be implemented successfully to enhance career growth. After a candidate's resume is downloaded by an employer or a recruiter, physically tracking it is impossible. Without the candidate's consent it may get duplicated on other sites.
Candidates can subscribe to newsletters that contain valuable tips about job hunting and current trends. While job boards and resume database sites can be a job search tool worth utilizing, using this approach exclusively is passive job hunting and not likely to be very effective. 
Candidates can establish a good relationship with professional recruiters who can help them and their friends successfully in getting the right job. Mass posting your resume on various job sites may result in potential employers and recruiters to overlook your profile.
Candidates can earn referral booty(some job boards really do have a referral policy) by referring apt candidates for a given position. Candidates spend lot of time being pre-screened by recruiters, submitting long forms with a hope to get a break in their job hunting. They are rewarded with voice-mails or no responses in return, leaving them frustrated.
When a candidate's resume is shortlisted from a Job Board, his/her resume is passing a pre-selection system and when it comes on the desk of hiring managers they will read it very carefully.  Candidates need to keep contact details in their resumes updated, otherwise recruiters may miss them for a suitable job opening.
Another advantage is that the use of online communication is less intrusive than traditional methods. If you're already employed, you can spend time during nights and weekends perusing sites maintained by employers or job search companies, posting resumes and more, all without conflicting with your current job. For any advertised position, candidate has to face a lot of competition as job boards invite thousands of applications for the same posting.
If a candidate keeps his resume updated with the Key skills or with a proper objective/subject line, it is easy of a recruiter or employer to notice his resume among thousands of applications. Many job boards are not in the business of job seekers find work. They are in the business of advertising and just post job ads.
Most reputable job boards have features that enable you to protect your own privacy and confidentiality, control who sees your cv, mask the identity of your current employer (so your employer doesn't know you're looking), and easily edit and delete your cv or change it from active to inactive. Many job postings do not have a name and contact no. with whom candidates can follow up.
Print job ads offer only one way communication, i.e., people can see the ads and reply; while Job Board offers two way communications, where companies can contact suitable candidates and vice versa.  If a candidate puts fake experience in his resume, this would hamper his career prospects.
By posting resume on a job board, a candidate can know his market worth even if he/she is not actively looking for a change in job. An online job posting is sometimes not genuine.  The employer is surveying the market to test their current remuneration packages and to see if any of their employees respond.

Posting resume through online has its cons and pros.
Personally, I think it's much easier to post your resume
through the Internet, that way, you can apply for a
job while you just sit back and enjoy. Yet, aside from
online posting, you still have to go to companies by feet.
Either way, you'll find jobs as soon as possible.
