Does Your Resume Lead You to An Interview?

Most hiring managers and recruiters have one common complaint when they review resumes of job seekers: They are generally written from the perspective of the job seeker, rather than the recruiter. Most job seekers have this misconception that the hiring managers will look through each detail and search for the right information in the resume. Hiring managers are very busy. On average they do not give more than thirty seconds to a resume. Also, going through zillions of resumes is a deathly boring task. So, unless you have not highlighted your key experiences and credentials relevant to the particular job you have applied for, these will be missed out the person reviewing your resume.

An eye-catching resume is the one written like building a case to win your argument. In an argument, you only point out to the most important and compelling details to win your case. This saves time and increase chances of success. Most candidates either list down the important details and achievements way down the endless list of bullet points or simply do not include these in the resume. It is sometimes in the interview stage that the hiring managers learn about the awesome things these applicants have done.

When writing the resume, ask yourself this question: If you were hiring, would you hire you? Is your resume appealing enough for the hiring manager to give you an interview call? Read the job requirements carefully and customize your resume by including and making prominent all relevant details to entice the resume reviewer to read through the whole document and shortlist you for the interview.
