Recruiters and Hiring Managers receive many resumes a day and need to decide very quickly whether an applicant meets their needs. Your resume needs to concise and scannable to grab their attention, highlighting your key skills and achievements in a way that stands out from the rest.
If you’ve applied for a job online or to a large company, chances are that your resume has gone through an applicant tracking system (ATS), never to be seen again. Unless your resume is optimized with relevant keywords, tailored to the job description or position you’re applying to it won’t make it into the right hands. Your chances at getting an interview for the job are then slim to none.
