Recruiters receive an average of 118 resumes for every job listing they post.

As you can imagine, they don’t always have time to read through every one. In fact, they may not even have time to open every one.

That's why it's so important to make sure your resume -- and the email or cover note you send along with it -- is written in a way that pleases the recruiters reading it. That means it should be scannable, free of errors, and formatted in a way that makes it easy for them to uncover key metrics and accomplishments.
