Cruise Line Class's curator insight, June 18, 2014 7:17 AM

Please do take a minute to read the study!


I love that the article stated that the average time recruiters spend looking at resumes is 6.25 seconds.  I would always tell those who I was helping that if your resume is lucky enough to get past the systems and make it to a human...your resume has 6 seconds to catch the attention of the recruiter.


What does that mean to you?  Review your resume and make sure that the most important information is front and center.  Tweak your resume to ensure that a quick glance it is evident that you meet the qualifications of the position, and are a fit for the position, and the company.


Remember the job of your resume is to set you apart from the hundreds of other candidates to land you an interview on the first round.  Review your resume, would it past the 6 second test?


Hope the article and the tips help.  Until next time....PS - Live on Purpose!
