This means you'll need to make sure your application is designed to grab attention quickly or your application will wind up in the garbage no matter how much experience you have. You'll be competing against hundreds of applicants and that means that the personnel looking at applications gets tired of reading all the way through very quickly.

This means a couple seconds of scanning is all they'll give to most of the applications. And the last thing you need if you're looking for work is to be bypassed. Meaning, you better spend some time on your cover letter and application.

By designing your resume to suit the company hiring, you'll know exactly what they need to know and be able to put that information into a format that exemplifies your highest qualities.
