So, some of the conventional job search wisdom is that resumes typically get a very quick glance in an initial review, like maybe 15 seconds, and that screeners—hr or otherwise—can’t be expected to read everything or catch all of the content.
OK, so my question is, how long exactly does it take you to read a page? Or even two? With a culturally standardized format? Education first = new grad, jobs first = out of school. Do you really need more than 15 seconds to grab headline, last job, education, professional affiliations, extras?
Maybe the problem isn’t applicants, maybe the problem is content analysis skills on the part of reviewers. :-O
(Shock and awe? I could have gone somewhere else with that. 😉 )
