Advantages Got my CV to a large number of recruiters quickly. It's fast and was effective for me.
Disadvantages While they have a free service (adding your CV to database) the CV forwarding is a pay-for service
CVtrumpet is a CV forwarding service. It forwards your CV to the inboxes of a large number of recruiters that match your salary, job type, industry and your level (Manager/Director/Specialist etc). Recruiters receive CVs for free and CVtrumpet state on their site that they have over 8,200 recruiters with them that receive CVs.A friend had used the service and recommended it. With the current market I was a little sceptical though as there doesn't seem to be as many vacancies as there was when I was looking last May.
I decided to go for it and joined in less than 5 minutes. My CV was sent to 197 recruiters that matched my profile (out of the 8,200 in total). I was able to get the list of recruitment companies, registration was fairly quick and easy and my CV was sent out the next day (they send a confirmation email).On the day my CV went out (and the day after) I received several responses from recruiters, both emails and phone calls, one of which led to the all important offer about 3 weeks later.
In summary, I see it as a very quick way to get your CV directly to the inboxes of a large number of matching recruiters.
