One job advertisement can attract between 50 to 500 resumes. Hiring managers sift through stacks of resumes, sometimes investing only seconds to determine if the applicant will bring the background, experience, and personality needed to be successful in their company. Applicant tracking systems scan and code resumes based upon key words which determine if the resume gets reviewed at all. Well written resumes that highlight the relevant strengths, experience, and accomplishments tell a story of success, progression, and ambition leaving the manager eager to learn more. It is important that your resume has integrity, credibility, and that it stands out from the competition. The objective of the resume is to capture the reader’s attention, while inspiring the manager to call you for an interview.
