Why Most Résumé Writing Services Don’t Work

Most Résumés Don’t Pass!

Most résumés and Resume Writing Services won’t get you the job! Here’s why…

Today with smartphones and new technology worldwide, hiring managers are getting 100s of applications for each job…

On average, every corporate job opening attracts 250 resumes… But only 4 to 6 of these people will be called for an interview, and only 1 of those will be offered a job.

If You Pass, How Much Time?

The original recruiter study in 2012 said 6.2 seconds.
A May 2018 article from a 20-year recruiter said you have 5 seconds… and they don’t even work!

Then, in November 2018 Ladders redid their study, confirming you get 7.4 seconds… So 6 years later the eye scan time actually went from 6.2 to 7.4 seconds. Woo-hoo!

The point? You’d better 🅿🅾🅿 in seconds! I’d say you get 3 seconds or less, for the initial decision to even keep reading. That’s where Profiles That 🅿🅾🅿!™ can help.

Once You Pass… Red HOT Flow!

The do-it-yourself résumé (shown on the left in the picture) barely got a glance. And mostly in one area.

On the other hand, look at the red for the professional (shown on the right) one. It’s going to all the key résumé areas! Thus, getting you a better initial scan and interest.

As you can see in the red areas above, this is where their eyes focus the most. You want to leverage those most-read areas. Here are some real résumé examples…
