Some Resume Screeners Comments on What They Look For

A) In screening the resume the points which I ‘take care of’ particularly would be:

1) Education qualification required for the job

2)Relevant experience [I  assume in line with ad specs]

3) Job stability – for me which is very important criteria

4) Location [particularly if there is no relocation package offered]

B) While screening resume, I look for three things – education, experience and age. In my view if these three parameters match with the requirment, you have a relevant candidate and you may go ahead and read the rest of resume for more details.

C) 1. The professional structure of the resume for the same reason that the candidate is not physically present and as such a resume is a proxy for him. The better the presentation the easier it is for me to have a glimpse into the candidate’s professionalism.

2. Secondly I would seek for an alignment between the job profile, the special and general skill set that is required for the best performance of the job offered.

3. The personal quallities of the candidate ie his enthusiasm and willing to go extra mile. Therein the “value-clarification” on the part of the candidate is something that will attract my attention. The more we are value-driven to do something the more we achieve in life.

And a current (1st qtr 09) concern…

D] “Unfortunately, the primary force that rules many employment decisions is the *fear of making a hiring mistake *.  In these tough economic times, that’s why so few in the hiring arena take a chance on somebody.  They believe if they don’t get everything right about a hire, then it’ll be their jobs on the line come next layoff.”

    You will need to construct a résumé at some point in your life, whether applying for an internship or a full-time job. A

    well-designed résumé will help you:

    * Initiate contact with a potential employer.

    * Communicate your relevant qualifications and strengths.

    * Provide information to personal and professional contacts who will write letters of recommendation or make phone

    calls on your behalf.

    * Demonstrate your ability to write well, pay attention to detail, and present information in an organized and concise

    manner.
