Your resume gets more opportunities to be evaluated for a position the more time your resume spends as part of an agency’s database. And these opportunities equate to more actual evaluations, this means that you get more interviews and more considerations for the final selection of a position. As a soon-to-be marketing professional, this gives your resume more exposure to various employment offers and you an edge in getting first pick of the positions offered in the digital marketing job market.
