Resume not getting shortlisted – frequent reasons
Resume not getting shortlisted – frequent reasons
•  “Absence of fitment (IT/ Non IT, work experience range etc.)”
•  “Resume is all over the place”
(hence missing out on highlighting what is required in JD)
•  “Resume is very generic and hence is not able to stand out from its competitors”
•  “Resume was difficult to read”
( hence could not get what they were looking for or anything of interest)
•  “The resume was very technical”
(meaning the resume could not show the transferable skill which candidate might
have)
•  “Some of the claims were unbelievable”
