Tailor your resume
As a recruiter specializing in finding top talent in the logistics and supply chain sectors, I regularly field requests from companies searching for a candidate that has the right combination of talent and personality. The biggest obstacle for candidates is conveying not only that you have the right experience for a specific position but that you will fit into the company culture. According to a Ladder.com report, hiring managers spend an average of 6.25 seconds scanning your résumé before they move onto the next candidate. Tailoring your résumé, by highlighting the aspects of your experience a company would find the most valuable will show you’ve done your research on the company and get their attention in the stack of non-descriptive résumés. Our role as talent matchmakers becomes that much easier if the candidate has done their homework.
