Thanks for all the great tips.

When you put your resume into any data base online you run a significant risk of having it wind up in other data bases without your knowledge. That's why I prefer emailing such information -- it's still a risk, but smaller because the info may not be put into a data base. Printed resumes are even safer in this regard.

I share your concern, but I am applying to be a pharmaceutical sales rep and all the companies that I have applied to pretty much require that you apply online on their website, they do not want you to mail, fax, or email your resume to them. And since this is such a difficult field to break in to I have to play by their rules.
