I stumbled across a very interesting infographic today that I had to share. It details reasons why resumes (commonly known as CVs overseas) are rejected. As I reviewed it, I speculated how closely it mirrored the attitude of recruiters here in the good ol’ USA. My guess is that their reasons for rejecting a resume is pretty similar to ours.
Check out a few of their reasons:
- 1 Typo on your resume and you are rejected
- Applications are received within the first 200 seconds of posting a job. (Was yours among them?)
- 1 in 3 Employers reject you due to something they found online. (I gave a presentation on this recently. This is sooo true here in the USA.)
Check out the rest of the stats below. And, I would LOVE to hear from my recruiter pals. What do you think of these stats?
