UP TO 95% of job applications are rejected without ever being seen by a person! Most job seekers don’t have a clue that almost every recruiter is using Applicant Tracking Software or ATS Resume Systems to automatically scan, store, rank and screen out the massive volumes of resumes they receive every week. Recruiters search these resume databases using keywords and operators to create a Boolean string (e.g. general manager AND sales OR marketing NOT manufacturing). Boolean strings allow a recruiter can quickly eliminate every resume that does not meet strict search requirements and deliver only suitable candidates. What does your resume say about you? Have you optimised your resume for Boolean searches? Do you have the right keyword phrases used by recruiters in your resume? Will your resume ever be found on the ATS resume system?
RECRUITERS now average 6.25 seconds to review and eliminate job applicants. That’s less than 10 seconds to convince a recruiter that your resume is worth reading. We don’t need to tell you what happens if it’s not. If your resume is found and you pass the first cull, you have about 30 seconds to convince the recruiter to call you for a first interview. The first interview, typically a phone interview, is to discuss your job application and the position with you in more detail. This is the deal breaker. YOU must demonstrate that your have ALL the relevant skills, experience and qualifications required for the job. If your resume presents poorly a recruiter will now put your resume forward to an employer. They will rarely say your resume formatting is terrible. The quality of your resume reflects on both you and the recruiter. The recruiter will protect their credibility by only submitting quality resumes to employers. That means no face-to-face job interviews. Only a recruiters will tell you to fix your resume as most just don’t have the time to do this. It’s so easy to skip your resume and move to the next candidate who has created a high quality document. It so important that you create your resume to a high standard and the Australian Resume Template can help you achieve that. When a recruiter phones you for a first interview you will know your resume is doing the job. If everything goes well you may be offered a face-to-face interview with a recruiter or employer soon after.
SO now you know how easy you a can create your new professional resume, you’re probably wondering how much to get your hands on this resume design that really works. As a professional resume writer I have been paid in excess of $500 to create resumes and cover letters for my clients, but I’m not going to charge you $500. You can buy resume templates for around $100 with beautiful cover page designs splashed with colours and pictures but they don’t impress, they rarely work and the recruiters we speak to don’t like them. You can download free resume templates from Microsoft Office but they have been the same for many years and they don’t work either. For A Limited Time Only you receive the Australian Cover Letter Template at no extra cost. This cover letter design is just what you need to help you get job interviews sooner, simply follow the cover letter writing tips and examples to create your own perfect cover letter.
