When looking for a job, most job searchers are casting a wide net and are willing to re-locate all over the country to land that dream job. While you are willing to relocate anywhere, your current private phone number is of course tied to your current location. If you put your New York phone number on your resume when applying for a job in Los Angeles, the hiring manager might reject your application right away because you are not living in L.A. An easy way to get around this problem is to get a local private phone number from CoverMe.
CoverMe gives you a local U.S. or Canada phone number that you can use just like any real phone number from Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, Bell or Rogers. You can send and receive texts, make and receive phone calls from anyone in the world, even people who are not using CoverMe.
The procedure to get a CoverMe private phone number is very easy.
Download the free CoverMe app on iTunes or Google Play.
Create an account.
Click on “More” at the bottom right corner of the main screen and select “CoverMe Phone Numbers”.
Click on “Continue”.
