HR managers have a lot going on in their heads at any given moment (just check out the visual below).
If you’re a potential candidate, keep in mind that you’ll be competing against a myriad of other priorities for the HR manager’s brain space. As well as screening candidates, their to-do lists likely include resolving employee relations issues, coordinating FMLA benefits, orienting new hires and delivering bad news. Make their jobs easier and they’ll like you better! Take the guesswork out of reviewing your resume by delivering one that clearly and succinctly outlines why you’re the perfect person for the open position.
