The average corporate job receives 250 applications, with four to six securing an interview. Additionally, recruiters spend an average of six seconds scanning a resume, the document you painstakingly crafted to land this job, and the first impression a recruiter/hiring manager gets of you. That’s assuming your resume even clears the Applicant Tracking System to reach human eyes to begin with.
On today’s episode of Find Your Niche: A Career Podcast, host Lori Cole offers the resume writing tips you need to avoid getting an automated “thanks, but no thanks” email, land in the “this is someone we want to interview” pile, and ultimately get hired.
How to Write a Resume
One resume does not fit all job postings. Therefore, you must customize it for every position you apply for. iHire’s Job X-Ray can help you find the right resume keywords for the job you seek, which will go a long way toward getting you through the Applicant Tracking System and onto a hiring manager’s desk. In this episode, Cole addresses the following resume questions:
• What information should be at the top of the resume?
• How long should your resume be?
• What format is the best to use?
• Are the design and layout of the resume important?
