The Resume Black Hole

May 6th, 2013

Resume Black Hole

When you send your resume out, does it land in a…

 black hole

Do you never hear back from job advertisement which was practically begging you to submit a resume “for immediate consideration”?

You are not alone.  That’s the problem. You and many, many others are clogging up the lines to the general mailbox.  You are just one of many similarly formatted inbound emails or text messages.  Most of those responses are just robo-resumes.  Senders are just firing off resumes willy-nilly.

One solution.  Send your reply attention to the specific hiring authority.  Most of these companies react positively to resumes sent to the attention of specific hiring authorities and/or recruiters within an organization.
