What Recruiters Want

Does this sound familiar? You’ve applied online for a job. Time passes, no acknowledgement of receiving your resume, no calls, and then, through networking, you hear about someone who got an interview for that job. Was the person who got called just lucky? What do you need to do to increase your chances of getting the HR recruiter to call you? I attended a career counselors meeting where a panel of HR recruiters from several large and well-known companies revealed their perspectives on job search and job seekers concerns. Some of the issues they addressed included:
1.  Your resume, what recruiters want to see.
2.  Who gets called in for an interview and why.
3.  One question recruiters will always ask.
Come to WIND to this meeting and find out what recruiters are looking for and what they want to hear.
