Knobull Support Makes It Easy To Pass The 30-Second Resume Test

BOSTON - BostonChron -- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull announced, "You can spend hours crafting your resume and conducting your job search, but today's labor market can be competitive, and you need to go above and beyond if you want to stand out. As if that wasn't tough enough, recruiters or the ATS will only dedicate a short amount of time to scan your application.

JobStars' help will cut the time you spend and make sure the reviewer finds those all-important details. This way it becomes easier to pass the 30-second resume test?"

Tailor every application

Writing a strong resume can be time-consuming, so it's understandable that tailoring every application you submit can feel like a lot more work. Generic resumes look lazy, unprofessional, so it's crucial that you tailor every resume to the specific position and company.

Engage the recruiter immediately

Your resume needs to start with a professional summary that grabs the recruiter's attention immediately. You must show your relevance to the role and highlight your key achievements. The key words in this section should be tailored to the specific position and company.

Keep it relevant

As you gain more and more experience, the list of things you can add to your resume will only grow. Recruiters only want to see your most recent and relevant experience, qualifications, and skills in the experience section.

Be specific

The more specific details you can give about what makes you great for the job, the better. So, when describing your experience, avoid giving generic explanations and give specific details instead. This includes quantifying your achievements to show how you made a real impact.

Think carefully about structure and readability

Of course, the content of your resume is absolutely vital, but so are readability and structure. Bullet points are also a great way to break up chunks of information rather than large blocks of text.

Finally, it's a good idea to think carefully about how you structure your content. For a more experienced professional, it's likely that your skills and experience will take precedence over your education. So it's better to put these sections closer to the top of the page.

Bentley concluded, "By tapping JobStars on the Knobull homepage, help can be provided to apply these suggestions which quickly engage the recruiter. This will ensure that your resume makes it as easy as possible for the reader or ATS to see that you're a good fit for the role."
