The first preliminary resume screening step at most corporations is a computerized ATS system that scans submitted resumes for keywords that indicate that an applicant fits a particular job.I estimate more that 90 percent of candidates apply using their standard resume (without any customization).
And finally, if you think the information in your cover letter will provide added support for your qualifications, you might be interested to know that a mere 17 percent of recruiters bother to read cover letters (Be Hiring).
Finding a position opening late can’t help your chances because the first resume is received within 200 seconds after a position is posted.
If you post your resume online on a major job site like Monster so that a recruiter can find it, you are facing stiff competition because 427,000 other resumes are posted on Monster alone each and every week (Be Hiring).
In a similar light, 43 percent of hiring managers will disqualify a candidate from consideration because of spelling errors (Adecco).
The use of an unprofessional email address will get a resume rejected 76 percent of the time (Be Hiring).
Because many recruiters and hiring managers use Linked In profiles either to verify or to supplement resume information, those profiles also impact your chances.
Ey- tracking technology used by The Ladders revealed that recruiters spend an average of 19 percent of their time on your Linked In profile simply viewing your picture (so a professional picture may be worthwhile).
If you can bear with me for a few quick minutes, I can show you using numbers where the job-search “roadblocks” are and how that data-supported insight can help you easily double your chances of landing an interview and a job.
Although it varies with the company and the job, on average 250 resumes are received for each corporate job opening.
Unfortunately, this practice dramatically increases the odds that a resume will be instantly rejected because a resume that is not customized to the job will seldom include enough of the required “keywords” to qualify for the next step, a review by a human.
Even if you are lucky enough to have a live recruiter review your resume, because recruiters spend on average less than 2 seconds (of the total six-second review) looking for a keyword match, unless the words are strategically placed so that they can be easily spotted, a recruiter will also likely reject it for not meeting the keyword target.
So even if an applicant did spend the required time to fully read the job posting, they may still end up applying for a job that exists only on paper.
