How Recruiters Review Resumes

Posted by on Dec 30, 2009 in Recruiting | 0 comments

In a post on Electronic Recruiters Exchange (, a network and forum of corporate, third party, and executive recruiters, Matt Charney wrote a sarcastic yet realistic view of how employers read job seekers resumes.

The post was one of the most commented posts of the forum in 2009. There is a lot of input and comments from all types of recruiters.

If you are a job seeker, it’s worth reviewing.

Matt discusses the numerous companies out there trying to make money off of unemployed job seekers as well as a detailed time slice of how recruiters choose to review your resume in 10 seconds or less… no matter how much you paid a “professional resume writer”, you still only get 10 seconds.

By the way, if you are looking for a job, one of the best way to find a job is through networking with recruiters. ERE is the top US network and community for all types of recruiters. I suggest you take a look, or follow the articles, or join their group on LinkedIn.

Keep building your Referral Network… It is the #1 way to find your next job.
