As many of you might already know, a recruiter spends about 6 seconds on your resume before tossing it into an accept or reject pile. I always wondered if that was true, and asked several recruiters I know about it. The answer was mostly positive, they have tons of resumes to go through, and most recruiters follow the strategy of building two piles, resumes that caught their eye, and resumes that didn’t. The ones that did pass the first round get scrutinized more, later. But how do you ensure yours isn’t tossed away?
