Why a Professional Resume Matters

Searching for your next new job can be both exciting and daunting, especially if you haven't updated your resume or applied for a position in some years. Utilizing LiveResume.com to help ensure your resume is professional and polished can help you beat the odds and land your next dream job, regardless of where or what it may be. Following are some of the most recent facts about resumes and how they are utilized during the hiring process today:

  • Employers initially scan the information contained in a resume for only 15 to 20 seconds.

If your resume fails to demand the attention of the employer during these vital few seconds, it will likely end up in the trash. Disorganization, failure to tailor a resume to a position's requirements and simple grammatical errors are common reasons a hiring manager will toss a resume.

  • 118 people apply for an open position, and only 20% of them are invited to an interview.

This means that your resume needs to beat out 80% of the competition to get to the next step in the hiring process. If it fails to present a competent, qualified professional to the employer, another applicant with a more polished resume will receive that invitation to an interview.

  • Most employers use software that scans and eliminates 50% of resumes before a human ever looks at them.

Although your resume is the first impression an employer will receive of your character, experience and education, you also have to outsmart the computer to get to their desk in the first place. A professional resume will include key phrases and skill sets that are required for a position, ensuring the best possible chance of making the initial cut with many potential employers.

  • 51% of all hires in 2009 were sourced via internal transfers.

Perhaps you think an internal promotion or transfer means you can relax when submitting your application, but a polished resume is still a must-have. Even if you simply want to move up within the company you are currently working for, a professional resume, in addition to your work performance, is the best way to stand out among your competing co-workers and outside applicants.
