Why your resume is being rejected

I found this on Workopolis this morning -- Your typing font may be causing your application to be rejected: We’ve looked at three reasons why you’re not getting called for an interview. Here’s one more: your resume didn’t make it past the automated online resume screening. Job postings receive an average of 250 applications, so this kind of resume screening software lets recruiters quickly shortlist candidates that are the best fit for the job.

How can a font have any thing to do with an application....maybe places should do their own hiring instead of thru a job site

The small stuff matters! Add it to your profile

Don’t overlook those mundane little tasks that were part of your previous or current position because they matter, and they can make you stand out and set you apart from other candidates.

But, rather than listing your responsibilities like ingredients on the back of a box, assign meaning to them. Make it personal. Make it you.

The mundane matters! These tasks, called “soft skills,” are…

Can I change my previous job titles to fit future job applications?

A suggested title change example would be from Customer Service to Sales & Service Account Executive. I just want to make sure this doesn’t hurt me when employers do reference and background checks.

I read somewhere that employers spend about 6 seconds on average reviewing a resume. With such a short window I want to make sure I’m not listing any useless information that will immediately cast me out of the lot.

Objective, hobbies, volunteer work (unless relevant to the position that you are applying for), improper email addresses, jobs…
