Global research points out that an average recruiter spends only 6 seconds in screening a resume. In those six seconds, he has to decide whether a candidate deserves more of his time.
You have only two options as far as this fact is concerned:
Option A: To cry over the fact.
Option B: To learn resume writing and maximize your job chances.
Incidentally, most candidates would choose Option A. Why? Well, because they do not know how to create a good resume.
If you are one of those rare humans, who picked Option B, Congratulation! Resume writing skills can be learnt, if you take a small action, like picking this book up.
