How ResumeEverywhere started their logo design journey

Company name

ResumeEverywhere

Overview

ResumeEverywhere's mission is to help people find a job by synchronizing their resume between multiple job sites (Monster.com, Dice.com, etc.), social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn) and anywhere else where their C.V. will be posted. We are a group of very experienced professionals (the youngest of us has over a decade in the industry) working to make the process of maintaining an online resume as quick, efficient and painless as possible. We're generally based in DC, but also have staff in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

Our tagline is "Your Resume. Everywhere."

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The initial target audience are English speaking, technology-savvy job seekers familiar with social networking. From there, we will build into English speaking, tech-savvy job seekers in general, then English speaking job seekers in general. After that, we plan to involve recruiters, staffing companies and academia.

Assuming that we haven't imploded or been bought by Google, non-English speakers would probably be next on the list. Then, of course, we're going to forcibly enlist anyone in the universe who has yet to see the brilliance of our product. Or, maybe not that last part.

Requirements

-- Update 3 --

No New Designs Will Be Accepted. The Contest Is Closed To Everyone; designers moving on to the next round have either already been contacted or will be very soon.

-- Update 3 --

The initial thought is that both Resume and Everywhere should be capitalized (CamelCasing is an option, but your call), but this is not required. The logo should try to capture the following attributes:
* Professional
* Trustworthy
* Safe
* Here To Help
* Ubiquity
* Easy To Use

Color would be nice, but please bear in mind the logo may be reproduced in black and white, so it should be sufficiently distinctive to withstand a copyright filing in B&W. All things being equal, we'd like a typeface that we can easily transition into those dreaded PowerPoint presentations so we can have a consistent, holistic visual impact, but that's a nice to have, not a requirement.

For deliverables, we will require eps, .jpg and .png files, as well as releases to use the logo as we see fit. Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo. Actually, if you use the stock MS clip art, we might question your reason for being around, let alone a designer.

We're sure that everyone says this, but we prefer clean and elegant imagery (because, really, who likes cluttered?). We know just enough about design to be dangerous, but we will do our level best to not be annoying about it.

That should be a good starting point.

--Update--
As we progress further through this process, we are coming to the conclusion that we do not want either a globe or a slew of arrows in the logo; both seem (to us, naturally) to be a bit trite and cliche.

-- Update 2 --
We are bring this contest to a close. No new submissions will be accepted after 10pm (Washington DC time) on April 14th. Any submission after that time will be summarily eliminated.
