Four Reasons Why Most Resumes Fail To Stand Out From the Crowd To Secure Job Interviews:
In our 24 years of resume writing experience, we’ve seen that there are four reasons why so many resumes get tossed or overlooked for interviews by employers, managers, human resources generalists and personnel recruiting executives:
1) Most Resumes Are Written Using "How-To" Books or Software
Templates so They All Look Like Everyone Else's Resume. Hence, They Usually FAIL the 15-Second Test.
Your resume has about 15 seconds to capture an employer’s interest during the first part of the screening.
Unfortunately, if you’re resume looks just like a 100 other resumes on the desk of a busy employer, manager or human resource person who doesn’t have the time to go through all of them, chances are yours won’t get noticed, and you won’t get a call.
It is sad that so many resume services do nothing but write resumes in this ineffective way.
2) Many Resumes Are 1-Page "Diaries" of Your Work Experience.
This Can Work Against You In the Eyes of Employers.
Think about this: In large corporations and a large majority of small businesses, there are human resource departments, as well as the departments in which employees work. In these various working departments, there are department heads and managers. So, when these department heads and managers need an employee, they are always asked to write up a 1-page requisition that contains a bullet point list of the requirements the employee for which they are searching must have ... and it is this 1-page of information that gets sent to the human resources people in their company so only qualified candidates with the right talents and requirements to do the proper job may be located and called in for an interview.
If an individual doesn’t have the pre-requisites to begin, why bother interviewing him or her at all? Department heads, managers and human resources personnel all work together to make sure that all the pre-requisites can be found before any individual is called in for an interview.
So the requisition drafted by the department head or manager now gets sent to the HR department to be filled. The HR department then looks for an employee that has all the pre-requisites and fits all the attributes required by the department. The HR department does not read resumes, they "QUICK-SCAN" them with their eyes or electronic scanners to make sure the greatest number of attributes required are there ... so obviously, the people doing this preliminary "QUICK-SCAN" work are going to prefer ONE page resumes in the hope that the required pre-requisites will be ultra-EASY to find.
And it is for this reason primarily, that the public gets the mistaken idea everybody needs to have a ONE page resume.
The last thing a department head or manager really wants—when they are about to spend $35,000 to $100,000 on an employee—is a resume that is so short and filled only with choppy "bullet-points" that it can be virtually meaningless. Remember: The department head or manager is always looking to get to know the applicant in as much depth as they can before they spend $35,000 to $100,000 of their company's money. Remember: These department heads and managers are looking to get to know you; they are looking to confirm that they will get the right value from the annual salary they are about to spend!
The department head or manger wants to know if you’re going to fit-in to his or her department. The department head or manager wants to know if you’re background experience – such as a job you did 8 years ago – will provide talent and experience that can help him or her be more efficient or productive or aligned with new technology, etc.
So you tell us: If everyone is suppose to have a ONE page resume like they say, does that mean that even the President of the United States should have have a ONE page resume?
And, what about a job that requires a lot of LAN / WAN Network or multi-server IT computer experience, or a lot of knowledge about specialized environmental controls or complex, government-regulated quality standards? All this information is information that qualifies you for the job.
The amount of technology in the world is not what it was in 1965. The variety of customer service techniques and capabilities has grown enormously since 1972. The extended number of models that car manufacturers have come to produce since 1980 would surprise you.
So, you get the idea! In every area, things have expanded in an important way ... would you want to leave off your resume highly relevant details simply because you can't get everything to fit on ONE page?
So the "QUICK-SCAN" people have to do a little more work ... but when the department head or manager reads a CareerPlex American Writing Professional's resume, you ... get noticed, stand out and immediately move to the top of the list for hiring consideration.
3) Unfortunately, a Lot of Resumes Are Written Like "Diaries"; they
include everything. This Is Not What HR People, Department Heads, Managers and Interviewers Are Looking For!
Does your resume have text about every job you've ever had? Are you a sales representative now, but your resume has on it your job flipping hamburgers at McDonalds when you were in high school? If it does, then it's written using a “diary format” ... which will only work against you.
Employers with a certain position to fill read back over the past 10 or 15 years and see that you worked as a car mechanic here and a school teacher there and a bookkeeper for only the past four years, which is the position they are looking to fill.
As a result, resumes like these don't stand a chance against a resume that has been written with focus. Your resume must show a credible vertical alignment with the job that is being recruited. Otherwise, it just isn't going to get noticed; it simply will stay on the bottom of the pile!
Employers need to know how your talents, skills and experience can successfully fulfill the specific job position they are looking to fill—they are just not interested in reading a “diary” of all your past unrelated jobs.
4) Most Resumes FAIL to Effectively Communicate How the Person’s
Talents, Skills and Abilities Are in Line With the Target Position For Which They Are Being Interviewed.
Unfortunately, many people want to save money on resume services by cutting corners and not investing in a live, professional service group like CareerPlex's American Writing Professional's division to draft a highly distinctive document—one that the individual truly needs to stand out and get noticed.
Many job hunters use one of the zillions of "copied-from-a-How-To-book" type of resume services that are all too common on the Internet. Or, they take a "do-it-yourself" approach that does not wind up with a resume that truly markets their talents and abilities properly to a prospective employer.
Other job hunters send out resumes that don’t effectively communicate their ability to excel in their target position. While still other employment seekers use resumes that have been poorly drafted ... written in a way that doesn’t specifically connect to the specific job order the employer is looking to fill.
CareerPlex's American Writing Professionals Division has been in this business for over 24 years, and we know how to write resumes.
