How do I get potential employers to respond to my resume?

If you only apply online, you will likely not get a lot of action. You need to use Linkedin, capitalize on your network, meet new people, go to networking events, and also work with some recruiters. The point is that you need to employ a proactive search strategy to get noticed. I hope this helps.

In Ohio, Cincinnati voters overwhelmingly–78% to 2%–defeated a city charter amendment that would have eliminated the defined benefit pension plan for newly hired city employees. And in New York City, voters elected Bill de Blasio, the first Democratic mayor in more than two decades.
