Just ten seconds….

lynn iconDo the math…


Ten seconds doesn’t seem like much time to decide whether you are going to give me a second look, a chance at a job.

But when you have a stack of 100 resumes, ten seconds is over 15 mind-numbing minutes.  If you give each one just 5 minutes you’re going to spend nearly an hour and a half.

If nothing grabs you on my resume, it will be in the trash within 5 seconds.

But if… you see something you’ve been looking for… you will set my resume aside for a second look. 

What would make your resume get out of the pile of 100 and onto the desk for a second look?
