Reasons why recruiters do not read your resume 13082609_1219039938108522_9016068569521602181_n

Address yourself professionally

Your email address should appear professional and convey your full name so that your prospective employer or recruiters knows exactly who is sending the email. Do not use name or email address such as “Pretty Girl” or “Lone Ranger” which would be ignored.

Clear subject line

It is also important that you address the intention of sending your email clearly and precisely in the subject line. Do not just put “Any Jobs”, “Jawatan Kosong” or “My Resume” in the subject line as it would make it difficult for the employer or recruiters to track which position you are interested in

Insert an introductory statement

Introduce yourself in a short and simple sentence and the reason why you are applying for the job. Employer or recruiters could only allocate 5 to 30 seconds of their time to review each application.

Proofread your email before hitting on the send button

Read your email a few times before you hit on the send button. Simple spelling mistakes will turn away your employers. Do not use short forms such as FYI in your email. In most cases, short forms could lead to miscommunication.

Sending a Generic email

Sending a generic email such as using blind carbon copy (BCC) instead of “To:” means that the same email was sent to other prospective employers. If you are doing this, it means that you are not serious enough to land that particular job you are applying

Email Signature

Your email signature should appear professional. Make sure your signature is composed of your name, phone number and email address.

Missing Attachment

Jobseekers often forget to attach their resume. Employer or recruiters may not have time to follow up with you on your missing resume. It is recommended that you attach your resume immediately prior to writing your email.

Remember That Your Resume (and LinkedIn Profile)
