To get your resume shortlisted
If you are not getting any interview call then that means there is something is wrong with your resume or the application to the job. Most of the applicants send their resume to many jobs in the same format; this is right thing to do.
Resume should be prepared in such way that when recruiters look at resume they should feel that you are suitable for the job and the organization. One has check his twice before sending. How you have sent your resume whether you have applied through the company’s website or have you sent email to human resource person and have you done any mistakes while doing so.
Every company receives many applications through their website hence there is a lot of competition, recently one of the company had received about 500 applications, the recruiters could not shortlist at least 5 applications in the first 50 applications. Even the next 50 applications also could not satisfy them. This means many applicants who do not posses qualifications and skills but still forward the resume through company’s website, applicants should never apply to the job which they are skilled enough.
Some applicants forward their resume to Human resource department giving the reference of known people in the company. When you apply like you should know about your know person‘s recognition in the company, because there are who might be working in the for long time but still are not recognized by their boss. Hence there is no use in send your application giving their reference. It is always better give reference of those persons who are efficient and getting regular promotions in their job this will definitely help in getting interview call.
