Recruiters often receive light resumes, much information about the candidate, his background and his experience are missing.
The first step you should consider is including any information that a recruiter may need in your resume. To name a few: your diplomas and certificates, the location of your previous employers, the number of years spent on each role, your technical skills and more.
You should know that when you send a light resume, the first idea that comes to the mind is that you lack experience in your career. When sending a lot of information, you become easily remarkable.
Plus, when you make the effort to customize your candidacy, you show interest in the position concerned and your motivation.
The more information you share, the more chances you’ll have to get the job. A recruiter receives too many applications for a role. The time spent reading and analyzing each candidacy is limited, that’s why they’ll often be looking for specific keywords or the most important missions related to the vacancy. Which explains why the more information you add, the more chances you get to be offered the job.
You can also share additional documents (i.e as a cover letter or the like) that contains more details about your profile.
Recruiters are looking for someone having a good history with previous employers and colleagues. It would be of an added value if you can add reference letters.
The results of a test or a diploma are good, but a recommendation is better, especially if the company is well-reputed and inspiring confidence. Never ignore that human relationships are one of the most important aspects of recruitment.
Also, when someone recommends your profile, this confirms the skills you listed in your resume, therefore, the recruiter will discover your strengths.
We all know that, as professionals, there are a lot of unexpected issues to deal with, but still, a recruiter should have an answer from you. Nevertheless, make yourself available to inform the recruiter of any change during the process
There can be a perfect match between yourself and the opportunity, but if you are not responsive enough, someone else will get the job instead.
