Recruiters may receive hundreds of resumes per day. On the first pass, each resume will receive an undivided time of about 20 seconds, possibly with only one telephone interruption, to assess whether your resume is printed or deleted. Bearing that in mind, does your resume advertise your qualities, experience and achievements succinctly to inspire the recruiter?
