What does this mean?
When applying for jobs, customizing your résumé is one of the most important opportunities a job seeker has. For those who are customizing their résumé, they are getting job interviews at a higher rate than those who think a single résumé will work. In our analysis, those who received a 70% job fit rating or higher, were interviewed 60% of the time. This means out of every two applications, they are getting at least one interview.
Hiring companies are looking for qualified people and each job description contains the skills and capabilities desired. The applicant who customizes their résumé to showcase those skills stands out in a heard of low or, as our data suggests, very low job fit rating candidates.
Preptel makes customizing your résumé to each job fast and easy. It identifies keywords required to showcase your qualities for the job. With an increase of 300%, Preptel candidates stand above the crowd.
