Does Your Resume Pass the “Two Sneeze” Test?
Academic research has shown recruiters read resumes in a systematic pattern, taking 6.25 seconds to make a yes/no decision; yet, 75% of the time, resumes don’t make it through an ATS to the recruiter’s desk at all!
That’s sobering new information from Career Thought Leaders, a research and advisory council that provides certifications and Best Practices guidance for career professionals.
If your current resume isn’t grabbing a recruiter in 6.25 seconds – if your special contributory value can’t be clearly shown in about the time it takes to sneeze twice — then your resume is bad. Plain and simple.
Use the stopwatch on your cell phone and see how much of your resume you can read in 6.25 seconds. Not much, right?
Further, if your resume isn’t even making it to the recruiters’ desks because it is screened out by the computerized ATS, or Applicant Tracking System, that all recruiters use, you have a poor resume, one that is hurting your job search.
