Reason for Resume Rejection

images[3]

Resumes are read or even scanned quickly.  The primary goal of the reader is to eliminate as many as possible to arrive at a few candidates to be considered for an interview.  It is now possible for employers to have their computers scan a resume for key words.  If those words are not located on the resume, they don’t even get touched by a human.  Technology is great, but it does have pitfalls.

The following are some of the main reasons why a resume is screened out of the process.

– Poorly prepared, organized and difficult to read cover letters and resumes.

– Career objectives incompatible with current or future opportunities.

– Improper spelling, grammar and punctuation.

– Gaps in work history.

– Incompatible geographical requirements.

– Salary requirements incompatible with company’s compensation guidelines.

– Lack of education required.

– Lack of skills required.

– No stability in work history.

– Resume is too short or too long.

These are just a few of the reasons why resumes are screened out before they even have a chance to attract attention.  You must have a resume that avoids some of the reasons listed above.  If you are unsure about your resume, take it to a professional or to someone you trust that has a solid professional background.  It is impossible for you to judge your resume objectively.  Take it seriously because it could make the difference of whether or not you become employed
