Is there a site where I can post my resume and have companies looking for my talent rather than spending infinite hours on Indeed, etc. responding to an opening which will receive hundreds of responses?
Thank you for your help which is appreciated.

When you post your resume on Indeed, employers can search for it, and it’s free to you. There are other sites, like ZipRecruiter that do the same thing. What I find is that I’m often contacted (and I’m not even job hunting) based my LinkedIn profile, so that’s where I’d suggest you keep your resume and information current.
To be honest, job hunting is hard. If you’ve got a professional background you might want to find a recruiter in your field, use your LinkedIn contacts to help you find a job, and keep applying for those jobs on Indeed.
Ultimately, finding a job is going to take making a connection. I found this job (which I love by the way), by contacting the HR rep (after my application wasn’t noticed) and saying, hey, I really want to talk to you about this job! That got the ball rolling. Just sending a resume rarely works. Mine slipped through the cracks because it didn’t explicitly state that I had Microsoft Office experience. Ha! Of course I did, just didn’t think to mention it ….
Hang in there!
