Will your current resume pass the 10-second test?
Most resumes are discarded / rejected within 10 seconds
80% of Resumes are accepted or rejected within 10 seconds (some statistics say as little as 6 seconds). Your resume is your most important document in determining your career progress, your income, and even your way of life. Unfortunately, most people, after leaving a job, usually just tack on (add) their most recent position to their resume and send it out for new job applications – and that is why it is highly unlikely that they will achieve interviews, let alone job offers.
ATS friendly documents with keywords
Today’s job market has changed and continues to change, so if you think you can send out a resume you put together some years ago or go online and grab a template you think looks exciting – think again! The majority of online templates are generally not compatible with applicant tracking systems/software which most hiring organisations now use to sift through the (often hundreds) applications they receive for every advertised job position. These applicant tracking systems/software are also geared up to identify ‘keywords’ relevant to advertised positions and will quickly reject your resume if these are not included.
