A recent study shows that recruiters spend just over three minutes reading a candidate’s resume. On average, they've made up their mind about the candidate within the first minute. So how can you stand out from the crowd? You might think it's best to be eye-catching, with unique fonts or lots of design, but that's not the case. The most effective way to get placed into the "yes" pile is by tailoring your resume to each position you're applying for.
