Tips for Reviewing Resumes

As recruiting new hires becomes more and more difficult, the ability to accurately screen resumes in order to increase your odds of finding the right one is crucially important. Although most experts agree that “gut instinct” is often a necessary tool in finding your right candidate, below are a few pointers that may help streamline your recruiting process:

Don’t overthink it. First, simply tell yourself that your goal of screening resumes is to decide whether to move a candidate forward to an initial short phone interview, or reject them.

Verify. Make sure that every skill that you require (and they say they have) is proven with job experience and references.

Stay focused. Make sure not to ponder over candidates that don’t even meet your minimum qualifications.

Narrow down. After initial phone interview, make an objective short list based on skills (and of course your impression).
