The research also revealed that just like resumes, weak organization, and scannability within a Linked In profile negatively impacted the recruiter’s ability to “process the profile” (The Ladders).Recruiters report that over 50 percent of applicants for a typical job fail to meet the basic qualifications for that job ().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.So even though an applicant actually meets the written qualifications, they may be later rejected (without their knowledge) because after they applied, the hiring manager finally decided that they actually wanted a significantly different set of qualifications.As a professor and a corporate recruiting strategist, I can tell you that very few applicants truly understand the corporate recruiting process.Most people looking for a job approach it with little factual knowledge. A superior approach is to instead analyze it carefully, because data can help you understand why so many applicants simply can’t land a job.
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).
Having a clear or professionally organized resume format that presents relevant information where recruiters expect it will improve the rating of a resume by recruiter by a whopping 60 percent, without any change to the content (a 6.2 versus a 3.9 usability rating for the less-professionally organized resume).
And if you make that common mistake of putting your resume in a PDF format, you should realize that many ATS systems will simply not be able to scan and read any part of its content (meaning instant rejection).
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.
