The article below is written by a former recruiter who recommends that entry-level resumes focus on these 4 things:
- The resume needs to demonstrate that the candidate has met all the job requirements
- The resume has facts and no fluff
- The resume reflects the candidate’s attitude
- The structure of the resume is easily understandable
“It’s not uncommon for sought-after entry-level roles to receive hundreds of applications. As a recruiter on the other side of that process, I had to become ruthless in my shortlisting process. If a résumé didn’t grip my attention within 10 seconds, it went straight to my trash folder. I know it sounds harsh, but the truth is, we’re always under a lot of pressure to find the right hire as quickly as possible.” https://www.fastcompany.com/90435158/what-a-recruiter-looks-for-in-entry-level-resumes
