  • 2. Your Resume
    The Hiring Manager’s main objective is not to SELECT candidates but to ELIMINATE candidates!
    Given 500 Resumes:
    Scan through; majority are put into the “no” pile
    Put “maybe’s” aside
    Go through “maybe’s” again – select top 10-12
    HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU THINK IS REALLY SPENT READING EACH RESUME. . . . ?

  • 7. In the Interview
    Items that make a Recruiter’s skin crawl:
    Unprofessional dress – first impressions do count
    Telling your life story, especially personal information
    Interrupting
    No eye contact
    No relevant questions for interviewer
    Cell phones ringing or vibrating – turn off!
    And the #1 annoyance –
    NOT DOING YOUR HOMEWORK!!

  • 9. In the Interview
    In a 2009 study by SHRM*, interviewers were asked after the first 15 minutes if they thought they would hire the candidate.
    They were then asked again at the conclusion of an hour long interview.
    What percentage do you think stayed with their original assessment?
