Companies complain they cant find good qualified candidates, but they have systems in place to block everyone.
Some tips get you further than others. Resumes these days are often read by a machine before a human sees them. There are no quick and easy-to-do tips that can help get your resume past the screening systems. You’ll hear that a few simple tweaks can make the difference between getting deleted or getting read. But let’s be serious, it’s almost impossible to get your resume in front of a thousand others without some basic insiders’ knowledge of the company. In short, you need to get creative, not lie, but customize your resume to fit the job posting.
