Recruiting is a tough job. On the off chance if anybody contradicts, just don t believe them. For entry to mid-level roles there are always lot more candidates than the open positions.

How to write an effective, interesting resume and get noticed

When you are applying for a job, your resume creates the first impression. But it is quite challenging to make the HR recruiter go through your CV. One of the main reasons being that he has already gone through 500 such CVs already, so if there is nothing effective or interesting in your CV then it is another piece of garbage for them. They don’t have much time to spend on your resume, at the most they will dedicate 10 seconds for you because there are hundreds of others waiting in the queue to be read. That is why it is important that you ensure your CV has highlighted the main points, but that doesn’t mean you use all kinds of colors to emphasize the important points. Instead, you have to ensure that you come up with something new or appealing which will grab the attention of the hiring manager instantaneously. The most important thing that you have to ensure is that your CV is completely error free. Not a single spelling mistake or number should be missing in there. It will lea
