The Reason Your Resume Is Not Being Read

According to recent article from Berman Larson Kane, a leading staffing firm, many resumes do not reach their intended targets because of aggressive email filtering programs.

Here are seven tips to get your resumes through:
*Send resumes in plain text, not as attachments, unless the employer asks otherwise
*Don’t attach compressed files (.zip, .sit, .tar)
*Send e-mail to only one company at a time
*Keep words such as ‘free,’ ‘trial,’ ‘singles’ and ‘cash’ to a minimum
*Avoid subject lines with punctuation, all-capital-letterwords, or the spam buzzwords above
*Don’t use colored backgrounds
*Make sure there is a valid address in the ‘reply to’ field
*Don’t use an e-mail address with too many numbers
