Secrets from HR Excerpts from Yahoo* article: • “When it comes to getting a job, who you know really does matter.” • “If you are trying to get a job at a specific company, often the best thing to do is avoid HR entirely.” • “People assume someone’s reading cover letters. I haven’t read one in 11 years.” • “I always read résumés from the bottom-up. I have no problem with two page résumés, but three pages is pushing it.” • “Most of us use applicant-tracking systems that scan résumés for key words. The key to getting your résumé through the system is to pull key words directly from the job description.” * Source – shine.yahoo.com/work-money/13-things-hr-wont-tell
